You're-a-peein' trip

Well, the big day arrived so my father Garold Larson Sr. drove us to the airport. Looks like Feli had a little too much um....hot chocolate?
Ah, Big Ben. We made it to London and found sunshine and beautiful weather. We had some serious jet-lag.
Buckingham Palace.........we got the chance to have dinner with the queen. We had swine.
London bridges falling down. I was surprised how bright blue the paint was. Oh, Feli wants you all to notice that her gum matches her summer scarf.
Here we are at Windsor Castle. It's Feli's favorite place and I could tell why. The castle was HUGE and amazing in every way. The views were incredible and we even got to see the changing of the guard. Well, we watched it for like 5 seconds and got bored. Just a bunch of dudes dressed up in silly outfits putting on a show for the tourists.
Yeah......it's kinda like that.
While we were waiting to get into the palace of versailles I got some baguettes. Oh yeah, now we're in France. The chunnel thing was cool.
So this palace was too amazing to describe. Go there and see for yourself. They just don't build 'em like they used to.
Playing in the gardens.
Yes, this is how we play. So I would hate to do the yard work here.
Just hanging out downtown Paris.
We found Mary.

This little known landmark in paris was WAY bigger than I pictured. Seriously, picture it and times it by 10, then subtract 4.5 and that's about how big it is. 

Here's the train we snuck onto, it was a 16 hour train ride to Rome from Paris. I slept for like 10 hours of it, feli slept for like half an hour of it. She no likey that train.
Oh yeah, Notre dame. Freaking awesome. Met this little deformed guy with a hunchback. What's the deal with that?
Ahhh, Italy. What a cool happenin' place. This is inside the Vatican. St. Peter's Basilica was amazing. All the popes are buried there. It's also HUGE. The church office building in Salt Lake could fit INSIDE. Yeah, it was HUGE and amazing and huge and so cool and awesome and sweet. You should go. It's alright.
I am Gladiator. This was a highlight. Everyone says it's smaller than you would think, but I still think it's pretty huge.
Pantheon. Also very awesome.
View from our hotel in Tremezzo Italy, off of Lake Como. It was a nice place.
Lake Como.
This is Feli in Milan Italy heading out to the plane. We were flying to Norway. Ask us about it sometime, it was not easy to get on this flight. We had to sell our souls and kill 2 people just to get on this stupid plane. Feli got her soul back but I don't think I ever will.
My private jet.
Here we were, in Sweden. This is just after we got off the boat from Norway to Sweden. It was past midnight and the sun was still setting. Pretty cool.
Hanging out with our good friend Oscar in Stockholm. We got dinner and ate ice cream. We sat by the ocean and watched the sun set. It took freaking forever.
The last night we stayed at my good friend Viktor's house. He had just gotten home from a bike race in France, so it was good we got to play.

We had a lot of fun, and saw some amazing things. Our lives are now fulfilled and cultured bla bla bla bla. Love you all!

So are you guys back in the states already? Looks like you two had lots of fun. I'm a little jealous that you went all over the place. That is exactly what I wanted to do before we moved back to the states. Oh well.
