Luckily my little family was able to sleep during our flight over to England, because we landed on the Queen’s birthday. Queen Elizabeth II turned 90 this year and although her birthday truly falls in April the birthday celebrations were held all over the country on Sunday June 12.
Shortly after unpacking and settling in to our room at my in-law’s house we were off to several church organized street parties throughout my husband’s hometown of Eastleigh. The entire town gathered in celebration of the figurehead’s birthday with free barbecues, games, bouncy castles, and crafts. In the spirit of patriotism to my husband’s home country we spent the day out celebrating the life of Her Majesty.
Here’s a look at some of the fun we had. Arianna enjoyed the day more than anyone in the whole city. It’s so much fun being a family blended with both British and American cultures.
I am a proud Ameri Brit Mom.
