Blenheim

Today some students and our family headed out toBlenheim Palace.  You might remember we were there last week to not watch and not listen to the Royal Wedding.  Today was much more fun and warm and not crowded.

The first Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill (yep, related to Winston, who was in fact born in the palace) built the palace at the turn of the 18th century.

The girls perfecting their Churchill imitations.

What I loved most about Blenheim is the gardens.  Beautiful, beautiful grounds.

Very fun day — trying to relish every moment of these last days in Oxford.
