Updated - Stratford, Shakespeare, and Sonnets

Stratford was a gorgeous town and Anne Hathaway's gardens were equally as pretty.  We arrived at Avon to see Anne's house and gardens. 
The grounds were meticulously manicured and well kept. The girls got to see how people lived - a two room house (this is after all the additional rooms were added) house for seven people plus theirs servants and farm hands.  The original house is the two windows under the middle chimney without the second floor ball the rest was added later. 
Then it was time for lunch!!!
After having a cheeseburger and chips or chicken breast, peas, and chips lunch and chocolate muffin dessert at The Dirty Duck, we headed to Stratford. 

Malena had a tummy ache so the girls took turns carrying her lunch for her and we got her some nausea medicine Dramamine and all the girls were super sweet. 

We made our way to Arden and saw Shakespears birthplace and spent a little time in the small town, basically a few streets. The girls went shopping or to Starbucks to steal some wifi. 

Some of the kids got in on a live performance. :)

They are most looking forward to the Paris by night excursion - river ride and view of the eiffle tower.

Gotta go!  Time for London!!!
