We had a fabulous weekend here in London (minus the two trips to the emergency room). Hospitals over here are not like the US but I’m so thankful for these funny British doctors and the free health care in England. Can we talk a little about free health care in America? Kidding.
Friday night we finally found the Princess Diana Memorial Playground. It’s on the other side of Kensington Gardens and we’ve only walked by it about 15 times. But, we finally made it. It was the best playground we’ve ever been to!
Do you see the crows nest at the top of the Pirate ship? Yeah, Lucy and Chloe climbed to the top. Now I understand why most parents sit and look at their phones at the park instead of watching their kids take risks.
Saturday we tried to get to the changing of the guards but it was so crowded and we were pretty late. We did manage to see a little bit of the action before moving on
Then we walked through a little market at St. James church
Had some gelato on Regent Street
Then we made it over to Soho, which is probably the coolest part of the city.
The girls and I did a little shopping while Jon had a pint at his second favorite pub.
We stopped at the splash pad to cool off a little
Saturday night we walked over to his friend’s flat and had a glass of wine. It was a long, full day!
After trip #2 to the ER Jon and I took the girls to Notting Hill, my new favorite place since Soho. Seriously, this is a great city!!
I plan of heading back there this week with Emma. I have a feeling once she sees Notting Hill she’ll want to live here forever!
Last night Chloe and I went for a little walk and I found this little gem in the window of a consignment shop.
I think I need that white clutch.
