One word - TIRED AND GROUCHY.
Not sure if this is normal, but wow, everybody was slow to go this morning. We eventually got going a little later than we wanted to, but once out the door we headed towards Shoreditch and the Brick Lane Market. That's where P, Josiah, Lyra and Lucy stayed while Jack and I headed to the Science Museum. Jack and I got our nerd on, and caught an Imax and wandered the museum, while the rest of the crew had fun at the market. We eventually all caught up at Kensington Palace, where Jack and I had a fun time people and dog watching while listening to the Beatles. P and I got our palaces mixed and she ended up at Buckingham. After we got it all sorted they met up with us and we walked around the grounds for a bit until it started raining a bit (literally and figuratively.) That's about when moods and temperaments shifted a bit, and let's just say some of the group started to break down. We made the executive decision to head back to the flat and call it a day before it got any worse. We said traveling with kids would be fun and rewarding, right??? Just kidding...it's the BEST. No, seriously...it's been amazing so far but we definitely felt the tiredness today. Calling it a bit earlier today since we travel to Paris tomorrow and we want to sneak some more of London in tomorrow before we go.
Notes from today:
All the dogs at Kensington Gardens were off leash! What?? They were all so well behaved too. Our dogs would have been goners.
There are markets everywhere. London's market game is very strong.
The sun came out for a little bit today... that was nice.
I finally got the look right thing down, just in time to leave. I'm kinda glad we didn't rent a car, I would have smashed it right away.
