Arriving in London

After our overnight fight from Houston to London, we arrived in London at 4:00 .m. local time. I was pretty exhausted. Elizabeth did sleep off and on...but i couldn't really blame her...everything was different. Jeremy slept really well on the flight and was pretty awake when we got off the plane. That child can sleep anywhere!!:) After , we got off the flight, we needed three carts to get all of our bags to the van that was taking them to the hotel. We had a van just for our luggage and a separate car to drive us. Jeremy thought it was pretty neat that the steering wheel was on the other side of the car. We made it to the hotel at about 6 p.m., and then it was time to find somwhere to eat. We walked a little ways from our hotel and found a pub. I was excited because I really wanted to get fish and chips while we were in London. Boy, was I surprised to see rabbit's belly and pigeon gizzard on the menu!!! There were tons of things like that. Needless to say, the kids ate pretty much only goldfish crackers that night. We did order a chicken pie that was amazing.....but the kids wouldn't try one bite of it. It was a good time, though. Elizabeth also learned how to "cheers" everyone. ( Jeremy learned it a while ago) Everyone in the pub was clinking glasses and Elizabeth wanted in on it, too.:)
