Our most recent trip to London was, obviously, all about the kids. And where do kids love to go? Parks. London has no shortage of beautiful green spaces in which to play.
We love Kensington Gardens and the Princess Diana Playground.
Sawyer, Amelia and I loved the carousel.
The enormous musical instruments were one of Sawyer's favourite things.
Check out the amazing (and enormous) pirate ship! You can even climb up into the crow's nest.
All the cousins together at last! (except for baby Joe, asleep in the pram)
Another park we love is St. James'. It's long and green and it's full of Canada geese to make you feel at home.
In Alan's old neighbourhood, there's a proper sphinx at Crystal Palace Park! I used to hang out here quite a bit, with a cup of tea and a stack of writing paper... back in the days before kids.
It also has a maze in which to get lost. I'm not a great fan of mazes... The boys in my family love them though.
Hyde Park on a windy, grey London afternoon. A good spot to sit down with an ice lolly after a long day of walking.
And to relax in a royal lawn chair until the man collecting the money heads your way!
Sawyer loved the horses in many of the parks. This one is in Lloyd Park, a few tram stops from our hotel. We had a lovely afternoon here, picnicking in the rain.
Regent's Park! I love it here. It's beautiful and quiet and green, full of fountains
