2nd day in London

This is where my pictures get sparse. i will be adding pictures as i get them from family. We started the day off at the Tower of London. Saw the royal jewels, toured the castle that was built in 1078 and walked over to the Tower Bridge . 
Fish and chips outside of the Tower of London

Eating lunch in Trafalgar Square 

Love me some ivy
The road to Buckingham palace 
Love these men 

I swear I got a picture of the palace but can't seem to find it. This is the fountain in front of the palace 
My parents, Nat, Ry, Scott and Dave went to Wimbledon while the rest of us took a bus out to Notting hill. Love, love this part of London. Could have spent the whole trip here. 

We finished the night walking around Kensington palace and the gardens. Beautiful night.

Off to London

Getting to London did not go as planned.  After hours of phone calls and talking to multiple airline agents, they assured us that our flight in Minnesota would be waiting for us, not to worry. Well, the plane took off 5 minutes before we landed, we were stranded in Minnesota for a day:( to kill some time the next morning we hit up the Mall of America. Shopped , rode a roller coaster, the kids would have loved it. 

Aren't they cute?! 
Finally on our way to London, next stop Amsterdam and then off to London. 
We made it to the flat in London before the rest of the family- who all caught their flights but were staying in a house outside of London. 

Millar fun
