we made it london a couple days ago and we are having so much fun!

the boys did really well on the flight over. they didn’t fuss at all and we kept them busy with movies, video games on the ipad and headphones. the only problem? david hardly slept at all on the red eye flight. when we arrived at london/heathrow airport i was ready to curl up in a corner and get some sleep!

steve’s mom is from england and although she has been in the states for years, he still has family over here. his aunt and cousins picked us up from the airport. matthias and david couldn’t wait to meet their english cousins–and they have been having a ball!

there has been lots and lots of coloring. and some arguing over who gets to hold david on their lap and who gets to push his stroller {or pram if you’re british!} they are so absolutely darling. i keep joking that i am going to try to find room in my suitcase and sneak these sweet girls back to the states with me!

and they are brilliant artists as well!

we’ve slept until noon both days so far, but tomorrow we are determined to get up at a decent hour and make breakfast our first meal of the day {instead of lunch!}.  we’ve got some adventures planned for the next few days–i can’t wait to tell you about them.
