London Adventures

We made a jaunt down to London to stay with friends for the weekend, and had a wonderful time. It wasn’t like a lot of our vacations, where we go-go-go. Instead, we went to a park and the Natural History Museum, and socialized with friends.  It’s amazing how living overseas has changed so much that we think of a trip to London as a chance to relax, instead of a chance to sightsee!

The sightseeing highlight was, of course, the Natural History Museum.

We arrived on the Tube…

Gasped at the size and beauty of the museum itself…

And took in the Creepy Crawlies, too!

All in all, the entire trip was a success.

Of course, on the Tube ride back, after flipping through the Children’s Natural History Guidebook, Samantha turned to me and asked, “Mommy, how do babies get in tummies?”

Remind me to rip those pages out of there, okay?

  1. Sounds like you all had a great, relaxing time in London. The girls look like they were enthralled with the exhibits at the museum. I’m getting excited about my visit (10 more days and I’ll be there) and our trip to Ireland. As for Sam’s question…I have a book here I could bring with me. You could read it to her and it will answer all her questions. Do you remember it? I’m sure you do!
    Love you, Mom
