London Bridge is falling down.....

Dillon didn't have school last friday so we took advantage and went on a little road trip to Lake Havasu City AZ. The original London Bridge that used to be in London is now in AZ! Yes the one that has the famous song: London Bridge is falling down....

We spent Thursday night at the London Bridge Resort.
Friday morning we took advantage of the pool. Action shot of Dillon jumping in!
Beckham just chillin. Love the hat!
My two boys! Best buddies!
And there it is The London Bridge!!!
We went and walked across the bridge and came upon this statue of a couple of guys looking at the plans for the bridge. It was purchased from the city of London in 1968 for 2.5 million dollars. Transported to Lake Havasu City and rebuilt for another 7 million. It took 3 years to rebuild and was completed in 1971.
The bricks were all numbered so they could be laid out the exact way they were. (Well that's pretty neat!)
Just a tidbit of history. It really is a beautiful bridge! I'm so glad we got to see it!
We then went and hung out on the beach for a bit and played in the sand.
Collecting seashells!
It was a quick little road trip but it was a lot of fun!


  1. How fun!?! I didn't even know anything about The London Bridge.. pretty cool! We can't wait for the weather here to be consistently warm so we can get out and have some fun in the water!!

  2. It looks like you guys had so much fun. I can't believe that we never did that. It looks like fun and hot. I miss the sunshine and a little bit of the heat.
