London

I love Europe. Before moving to Spain I had never wanted to travel to Europe. This sounds weird but I thought if I'm going on a vacation I want to be on the beach soaking in the sun not going to Europe. What do you do there anyways?

Now I definitely feel different about Europe. I love it and would be more than happy to come back for vacations. Especially to go shopping in London!

We've had a really fun couple of days. Thursday we flew in and just chilled and enjoyed a pizza and english tv in our hotel. It was so yummy and relaxing. Flying with three kids all by myself was really easy. I've got the best little travelers ever. I love them!

Friday we had a yummy McDonald's breakfast with Daddy before he headed off to work. We rode the "Tube" for the first time down to South Kensington to visit a couple museums. The first was The Natural History Museum. We loved it! It was huge and great for kids and adults. After a few hours we needed some food to recharge. We found a cute little deli that had really good soup, sandwiches and hot chocolate. After that we went to The Science Museum. This was fun but not as cool as the dinosaur museum. We still had a lot of fun with all the interactive science experiments. That night we chilled at home with Dad.

Saturday we got up early and headed out for our last day of London. We decided to take the double decker bus tour. It was a really good way to see a lot of London and get a little history all while keeping the kids happy. We even tried fish and chips. Isaac liked it!

Now we're off to the airport back to Madrid. It was a really fast trip but a lot of fun! I'm so glad we've travelled so much. The kids are quite the little world travelers. Even Joaquin. He has multiple countries stamped in his passport and he's not even 2 months old yet.

I'll post pictures and more later.

Glad you had a great weekend together in London- and that you were able to enjoy the city. I agree that it is such a blessing to be able to travel and see so much right now- I admire you for embracing that opportunity and enjoying it.
