Here are a few pics of me during my playtime after bath….. i love bath and playtime….so this is the best time of day!…
Let me preface this by saying that my husband is extremely prepared and organized…..sometimes a bit too much…. Whenever he does one of these things, i call it a “Booker Move.” Because his dad, Dave Booker, happens to be the most prepared, thorough man i know and Mrs Kim is very organized….now i know that technically I am a Booker now, but these traits didnt magically transfer over to me….. but JR still says im the brains of the operation, so i must have something good going…..now onto my story…..
So Monday we decided to do a dry run to JRs work so there would be no problems tuesday…..Such a Booker thing to do 🙂 So JR looks up the directions of how to get there and everything. We walk to the tube, take the tube to richmond, take the train from richmond to feltham (where he works). Its then that JR realized that he didnt look up the directions from the train station to his actual work…..So not a Booker move. I was shocked and appalled! ….. so we decided to go to windsor castle instead since we were already headed that direction….. so we had to wait for 30 minutes for a train to come back by…. then about 5 minutes before the train gets there JR finds his building on the map posted at the station which he has been looking at the whole time….. Now thats a JR move…but thats another story for another day.
So we head off to windsor castle and its a lovely little town with a castle smack dab in the middle. JR kept saying he felt like he was at epcot 🙂 Anyway, here are some photos.
In case you havent noticed, we have combined our blogs (the hawaii one and Milo one). This will make everything easier. And I have made our blog cute :)…. So just wanted to give everyone an update…
The trip over: The trip was good since the flight is shorter than from hawaii. It was 6 hours and 45 minutes. Milo was wake for the first 3 hours….playing and stuff. She didnt get fussy for a while. Then she slept for the last 4 hours….JR and I dozed on and off while she slept, but you know how it goes. You cant really get any sleep on a plane…Unless you are in first class or milo’s size. We landed in london and had to wait a while in customs but everything went smoothly. Everyone just ooh-ed and ahh-ed at Milo….
We took a london taxi to our apartment….. Its up a flight of stairs. So guess who got to lug all 6 of our humongous suitcases and stroller….JR….and he did a great job. After we got settled a bit, we took a nap and explored the square near our apartment that has shops and food. We pretty much just hung out around here to relax and unwind. Here are some pics of the area up the street.
