London: Day 1

Let me just say that taking the early morning flight and arriving in London in time for bed is the way to go...absolutely no jet lag!

Today was our day to get familiar with the city so we took one of the hop-on/hop-off tours with Big Bus Tours and it was fabulous...especially Andy our guide!   

The Queen Mum's Gate

I really need longer arms for these self portraits!

 The markings are from the Blitz in World War II
The Great Fire of London Monument...if you were to lie down the monument, it would hit the exact spot of where the fire of 1666.

Look kids...Big Ben...Parliament!

The tour finished up just in time for us to make Afternoon Tea at Harrod's and it was quite yummy...not to mention extremely need for dinner tonight!

Moma had her own little adventure as she ended up being the only one of us to squeeze on the tube during rush hour!  She was a total trooper and made her way to Earl's Court and waited for Daddy and I to arrive...3 trains later as they were slammed packed.

London Eye, Tower of London and Cabinet War Rooms are a few things on tomorrow's agenda.
