During our first week in London we spent a lot of time with our lovely Irish cousins. We had three busy, exciting days together. On one of them, we decided to take an open-top double-decker bus tour of London. It was all going very well...
Dylan and Fergal got along nicely. They chatted and enjoyed the sightseeing (but hello boys! that's Harrod's behind you!!!)
Eoghan and Sawyer loved hamming it up for the camera, both on Alan's lap (and dangerously close to falling out from my perspective a few seats back! good news though... no one toppled over the edge)
Then it started to rain. A LOT. Paddy is from Ireland. He wasn't bothered a bit!
The rest of us wrapped up in plastic bags, cunningly described as "ponchos" in the brochure.
We were very stylish, non?
After we were thoroughly drenched, we decided to hop off our bus and head for cover under the London Eye. County Hall had hot chocolates, and we were in dire need.
Aaah, that's better! Amelia and I warm up and dry out.
All boy cousins (and Alan) are giddy from the rain, and make crazy faces for the camera.
Once warm, dried and fed, it was time to head back to the station to say good-bye. I love this photo of Dylan and Amelia together in the mist.
And this one of Alan and Amelia. Doesn't she look cute in the raincoat we brought her? From Victoria, BC all the way to Victoria Station! If only I'd thought to bring wet weather gear for my own kids...
