A very cultured baby

Brian had to go up to London for a conference early this week, so on Monday Iain and I went with him and spent part of the day in the British Museum. If you are interested in art or history and ever get the chance to visit London, you should definitely plan a visit there. Iain and I strolled around looking at ancient Greek and Assyrian artifacts and took in a tour of the Egypt rooms. I think he was the youngest person the guide had ever had on a tour with her. He was a good boy as usual.

This is the Reading Room in the center of the musuem. Boy, do I ever wish I could have a room in my house like that! How come libraries are never this nice? Ah well.














And here is my budding scholar. :) When he plays with his books Brian and I joke around that he is "doing his research". Oh my. We're pathetic, aren't we? This poor kiddo.




















And on Monday, we're off for Rome. Can you believe it? I sure can't. It is a dream come true. I'm looking forward to sharing those pictures and stories with you when we get back!

Wow! The British Museum is by far one of the best on the planet! Iain has good taste when it comes to museums.

That's right, K-Dog. And you should come visit so that you, too, can enjoy its many treasures!

Whoa. I can't believe you're going to Rome tomorrow. Whoa, whoa, whoa. I am so jealous. When you get back and while I'm chilling out in TN for 3 days before school starts we need to talk on the phone...Especially Brian: Brian, I haven't talked to you in probably two months. Bad. I miss you. And I've got some stuff I want to ask you about. Love y'all. Have a super-amazing time in Rome.

Have you seen the main reading room at the Library of Congress? That's even more beautiful that this one!

Iain is so cute, I can't stand it! :)
