September 13, 2018 Prediction: Parker is gonna be part of some gymnastics company like Cirque du Soleil and specifically do a cartwheel off a balcony Reply amazingrox48 September 13, 2018 I grew up in london and have visited these places several times and I sorta get used to it. It's so nice to see you all being really excited about all that stuff, especially the globe and the underground. Maybe I should appreciate it more ❤❤ Reply Beth Jenkins September 13, 2018 Next time u come to London, I would recommend the rainforest cafe, lion king musical, going down the themes on boat, Harry Potter studios and Madame Tussaud’s xx Reply Karma Ezz Eldeen September 13, 2018 I wish you would visit egypt And i love your videos so much and your kids are so adorable and sweet Reply Lacey Krueger September 13, 2018 Matilda is one of my favorite musicals of all time!!

Reply Haunted Mousey September 14, 2018 I LOVE MATILDA SO MUCH!!! It would be a dream to see it in London though because that’s the most authentic version and where the story and musical all began really!!! Reply Itz Emma September 14, 2018 0:10 trying to show off🤣 Reply Grace Clarke September 14, 2018 I live in Stratford upon Avon which is where Shakespeare was born and is buried. I go to the school attached to the school he went to school in and our common rooms are rumoured to be the place where he proposed to his wife!

Plays.Minecraft September 14, 2018 Thanks ballingers Reply 1989barker September 14, 2018 Why do I get the feeling that Parker is going to grow up to be one of those crazy daredevil stunt people that you always see on America's Got Talent? Reply Beth McCallum September 14, 2018 i can totally see parker on broadway one day! he looked at home in those costumes. Reply Angie Taylor September 14, 2018 I know when a youtuber is in the uk before they even say it.its the sky:grey and rainy Reply LesleyDawnDiaries September 14, 2018 Christopher is the most selfless, caring, giving, and wonderful father and husband! ❤️ Reply Libby Boas September 14, 2018 I know the girl who played Lavender!

I’m so happy you got to see it ☺️ Reply Allison G September 14, 2018 Parkers excitment for Matilda was incredible! I love him 😍 Reply Erin May September 14, 2018 Is it weird that when I went to see Matilda I was in the same theatre and same seats Reply lauren law September 14, 2018 It’d be really interesting to see the financial side of your trip, because I know it can be very expensive and I just wanna know how much you spent on a family of 6 traveling for almost a month Reply sadaf yasmin September 14, 2018 I am a gymnast sooo😅😅😂😂😂 Reply sadaf yasmin September 14, 2018 Parkers future plans 😂😂😂😂😂 Reply Jesss Douglasss September 14, 2018 Parker is hilariously funny 😂 Reply Sprinkles Unicorn September 14, 2018 I see the river Thames when I go to London and I live in UK Reply Danny Kamsteeg September 14, 2018 I love Parker. Reply Non September 14, 2018 Is it bad I knew which theatre you were in from just the seats?I totally get the expense of theatre. There are tricks to it and you can get cheaper tickets (I saw in yesterday’s blog you went to one of the Leicester Square ones, the only true cheap ticket booth is right in the centre, the rest will often sell you tickets at an inflated price). Matilda is actually one of those shows that isn’t easy to get cheap seats for (unless you win the ticket lottery) Love that you went to the globe, I think we went a week or so after you guys and went on the tour. We saw Mark Rylance doing yoga and playing volleyball as part of the casts warm up. (this is probably the show that made it closed when you guys went) Reply staygulf83 September 14, 2018 I know EXACTLY how Parker feels. When my father used to take me to the West End theatre we would always sit "up in the Gods" and I had this overwhelming desire to dive forward and land in the "stalls" Reply Talia Mayo September 15, 2018 I’m so happy you guys liked Matilda! That’s one of my favorite musicals, and it makes my heart happy to see you excited about it!! Love you guys! Reply Elise Vullo September 15, 2018 i didn’t know you guys were both theater majors!!!! i am too! Reply Ben Smith September 15, 2018 New video Reply Victoria Strong September 15, 2018 Parker singing about how much he loves butter in the outro is me. All day. Everyday. Reply Elizabeth Nutt September 15, 2018 Parker needs to react to this when he is older😂😂😂 Reply Katie Hoyle September 15, 2018 I saw Matilda about 4 weeks ago and it was fabulous Reply Praise Cheung September 15, 2018 cartwheels on the roof?! Parkers heading down the road for some rooftopping and parkour!! Reply Jessie Writes September 15, 2018 Matilda is my favorite book and my favorite musical! I'm so glad you were able to enjoy it!! I live close to NYC so I've seen many shows on school trips. I never realized how lucky I am to have been able to see great productions growing up. Theatre is magical Reply Chloe Gook September 15, 2018 It looks like you had a fabulous time in London! It was so lovely to meet you and your family at Mathilda I still can’t get over what a coincidence it was sitting on the same row as you! x Reply Martuu Chapman September 16, 2018 Gloucester Road was my tube stop when I travelled to London last year too!!! <3 It holds such a special place in my heart even though it's just a train station, it meant that I was home and it made me feel less of a tourist and embrace all of what the amazing London has to offer! Reply Alex Surro September 16, 2018 11:39 duncan drawing literally melts my heart 🧡🧡 so adorable Reply Josie Anderson September 16, 2018 Duncan is so good at using a spoon!! And Parker is so funny thinking he could just cartwheel off the balcony! Reply ArtJourneyUK September 16, 2018 Ahh you should have gone to the £10 price ticket booth in Leicester Square on the day to get cheap theatre tickets Reply Elya Hartley September 16, 2018 Oh I LOVED the Matilda musical ♡ saw it in Rochester NY Reply ArtJourneyUK September 16, 2018 Please tell me you took Bailey to the real Kings Cross station to see Platform 9 3/4 Reply Maggie Burback September 16, 2018 Mathilda the musical is so amazing!!!! I must go to London to see it. Saw it in San Jose California Reply Amanda Evans September 16, 2018 Thank you for watching Matilda and Lily-Mae! So glad you enjoyed the show!! Xx Reply LiliA September 16, 2018 How did you all get to go backstage?? Reply Amy W September 17, 2018 parker @ 6:50 IS auntie panties… i'm pretty sure she's said the same thing with the same hand gestures! Reply Jenson Blight September 17, 2018 “Maaaaatilda” the way Parker really loves the a makes my laugh and it makes me so happy. Reply Peggy Gilmore September 17, 2018 Parker makes me laugh everytime he see's something new, cant wait to keep watching your adventures. Have fun family parker i can i can i can lol Reply Alaina R September 17, 2018 You should look into joining a theatre group near Home! where I’m from in Cleveland you can be in a theatre group and get discounted tickets for shows that come through Playhouse Square on Broadway tours! I’ve gotten to see so many amazing productions like Hamilton, Wicked, Waitress, Aladdin, and so many more for prices that are unbelievable (im talking $5 tickets for some shows) Definitely look into if thatres near you have something like that! Reply Tim Frost September 17, 2018 I work at The Globe and am so glad you had a good time! Shame you came in the afternoon. Just means you have to come back!(also, Frost Fairs happened about once in a generation until Victorian times when we narrowed the river and it sped up.)x Reply kitten-senpai chon September 17, 2018 I am happy i am not alone on all the feels with heights i felt the same way when my kid and i saw whimpy kid at our local theater Reply Mallory Mayo September 19, 2018 Parker got a paper airplane from Matilda just like me!!! How awesome!! Reply Mia Caccavaro September 19, 2018 Matilda was my first Broadway show too! ❤️ Reply Manon Cerneau September 19, 2018 You guys are awesome!… I love how Parker is excited all the time❤️😂 Reply Bella Payne September 20, 2018 9:58 he looks so much like Colleen. I’m in love with him Reply dancer4evr1000 September 21, 2018 Also, Jessica, I saw The Phantom of the Opera at The Orpheum theater last night (INCREDIBLE show! Highly recommend!) and I was sitting right in front of the balcony, and it was a little scary! I’m not even afraid of heights, but it was unnerving looking straight down and not having a barrier! Reply talie September 23, 2018 I love the ice fair! it happened because the merchants didn't need to pay a tax to sell on the water lmao Reply Emily Hughes September 23, 2018 Glad you enjoyed it my friend plays meltilda Reply Daycray September 23, 2018 So Matilda is my favorite musical and I’ve seen it twice and I’ve always wanted to know how the Cup spins and then falls over. If you got to see how that worked I would looooooove to hear how it worked Reply Bettina Krause October 5, 2018 All your Kids , are sooooo Sweet!!! Reply Kaitlyn Sharrun October 7, 2018 Parker is getting so good at holding the camera and vlogging and showing us stuff! What a pro! Reply Kaitlyn Sharrun October 7, 2018 Christopher and Jessica, you have such beautiful children! Reply Kaitlyn Sharrun October 7, 2018 Oh my gosh Parker's sass makes this vlog 10 times funnier hahaha. "how's the set?" "good, but I can't find my name" hahahaha! Reply Kaitlyn Sharrun October 7, 2018 Awww Parker's face at 13:08 when he says "I wanna meet Matilda!" is so cute!! Reply TheSolomonFamily October 7, 2018 What a neat experience!! Reply Ana_the_antelope October 13, 2018 I went to see Matilda too when me and my family visited London! It was awesome!O M G, I just realised that we were in the exact same seat in the Matilda show! Reply Josephine Wild October 14, 2018 I saw Annie at the West End last year in September and the theatre had the same kind of seating. I agree it was kind of scary being that high but thankfully they have the railings that keep you safe. On the other side, it’s a pretty cool view. Reply Zuzia Gęstwicka November 6, 2018 I LOVE YOU GUYS. Parker is very funny, but in a Good way Reply Shoejata Alom November 23, 2018 I've got matilda the book i love it so much theres 221 pages Reply Skylar Blue1122 November 24, 2018 I love you guys and Parker is so funny lol Reply Skylar Blue1122 November 24, 2018 I have watched the movie Matilda and it is such a good movie. Reply GRHB2016 December 2, 2018 I love Parker so much wow Reply Emery R-U December 17, 2018 Thank you for showing us the stuff you saw at the Globe! I didn't know you two were theater majors! I studied theater in college as well and one of the study abroad opportunities that my school offered is called Theater in London, where you see 29 shows in 28 days (or something like that), including seeing shows at The Globe and West End. Unfortunately I couldn't go on that trip (because $$$$) but many of my friends did, so it was cool to see what some of them might have seen. And wowie, I want to see Matilda! I may watch a bootleg of it 😛 Reply Emma Shelley January 6, 2019 I wonder if Parker knows what to expect lol btw ilyg ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Reply Rachel Hinkley January 23, 2019 So so sorry if I haven’t gave a thumbs up to all of the videos I have just been enjoying them way to much I almost cried in all of them thank you so much for making them I really appreciate how much effort was put in 🥰😘😍 Reply Mummy Mania January 27, 2019 I ADORE Parker!
