The United Kingdom: Elementary my dear Watson

This day was largely uneventful and yet much needed! It kind was a day we left open in order to take it easy and so we decided to head back to London for a a quick stop at the Sherlock Holmes Museum and them some souvenir shopping in Picadilly circus.

of course we start with tea!

Elementary my dear Watson!

We didn't actually go inside the museum because so many reviews said that it wasn't worth admission. But we did take pictures out front with some hats and props that were provided for tourists and then we poked around the gift shop! 
The rest of the afternoon was largely uneventful in London, and included a stop at Lillywhites in Piccadilly to check out their football (soccer) swag and a late lunch on the edge of Covent Garden in a pub.
Aaron's favorite Premiere League Team!
A view of Trafalgar Square from our pub window! Also love the Tudor Rose details in the window.

We then headed back to Reading to spend the evening with Carla! 

When we planned this trip, we wanted to make sure we got in a HUGE chunk of time to spend with Carla and her family, so the whole weekend in between England and Scotland was just going to be spent with her. So on this evening, we met up with her after she finished up work and had dinner at Bill's (like I said, it was a favorite of hers) and then just hung out at our hotel talking and processing life and just being together! It was so wonderful and set the perfect tone for the rest of our weekend with her.

getting to try Eaton's Mess dessert! Delicious!
