out and about in birmingham

What was supposed to be our last few days in England was spent in the Birmingham area, in the North. We fed the ducks, played indoor mini golf, and spent a day checking out Birmingham.

Did you know Birmingham has more canals than Venice?? Although, I’m told they’re more beautiful in Venice.

The city center was bustling with activity including auditions for Britain’s Got Talent!

Yay for another family photo and for kids being silly with the statues!

Thank you, Leon and Allison, for an incredible time! We were so blessed by the late night chats, the laughs, and talking about all the biggest things in America! The canal is yours, everything else is ours. Ha! (Inside joke here. Smile.)

No way! More canals than Venice?? Did not know that. Birmingham is prettier than I had thought - once again just a glimpse from a business trip. Hardly fair to compare it to Venice, though!
