Alrighty. Whirlwind 2 weeks! We enjoyed our time with Clay's parents so much. Family is incredible. That we can go so long without seeing eachother and still just slide right back into place. Belonging. It felt really good.
Phil and Tracy had already been in London for one night when we arrived, so we headed to find them. It was the happiest reunion. Oh how I love a good hello! Goodbyes were made for them.
After we settled down we turned to go inside, but in all the excitement we had all been locked out of our apartment!
Never fear, Phil to the rescue- and on the 2nd floor, too.
Lots of talking, just so happy to be together.
I didn't know I missed Tootsie Roll Pops until they pulled out the bag. Oh my heavens.
We walked Hyde Park and talked and talked some more.
There is an animal theme to the whole trip. We fed a lot of them. You will see.
We enjoyed several meals in our apartment and it was so nice to relax together. And drink Dr. Pepper. With lime.
A little Mexican food...
And then some Mother's Day Phantom! We had a blast!
In all of our travels McDonald's is everywhere. Guess what isn't? McDonald's BREAKFAST! The rest of the world just doesn't do breakfast like we do, fellow Americans. Sigh. Well, our cousins in England get it. They get it real good. Never has salty grease shaped into food tasted so good.
After some fun days in London, the crew hopped a train on their way to Belgium.
