My mom and I decided this winter that we were in need of a quick escape to London, for some theatre, shopping, and the pub scene. I brought Adella, and Matt (aka “buck”) met us over there too. Tim decided to stay home so it was just a short little family trip. Adella did extremely well while we were there, and she slept about 8 hours of the 10 1/2 hour flight on the way over. We stayed right across from Green Park so we spent a day walking around Buckingham Palace and St. James’s park, she saw the London Eye and Big Ben…. Parliament!
Adella got a little taste of what it would be like to live in cold weather, poor thing had to be bundled up everyday and didn’t quite understand it, I don’t know how mom’s do it! She would just nap in the stroller as we cruised around the city and loved all the “chips”. We were walking distance to Picadilly Circus and Oxford Street, so we treated Adella to a morning at Hamleys, which put FAO Shwarz to shame. Each floor of the store was dedicated to a different theme, but Adella being the little dork that she is couldn’t get her nose out of the books ;).
I have a bunch of pictures to download, but our cord, along with everything else is packed. So here is a pic Buck captured with his iphone, while Adella was shopping at Selfridges.
