A day in London!

We all had a day out in London this week to see the sights! The plan was to head first to Kensington Park before taking on the museums but the rain changed our plans a little. The roads were flooded on the way to the station and we found out that after a bit of puddle paddling Joplin's boot's weren't waterproof! After wringing out his socks on the train a new pair of boots was the only real option, so we headed first to Oxford Street and found a pair of crocodile wellies which went down a treat! 
As we were in the area he had to stop at Hamleys. First stop Lego Floor! I was very impressed with the Lego Queen, but Joplin and Eden just adored the Lego full sized red telephone box complete with Lego phone and talking voices!

 There was lots that the boys could do - remote cars, scalextric,  and reindeer on roller skates to walk!

 We headed back to the tube, passing a life sized statue of the World's tallest man on the way!
 Then arrived at my favourite London building The Natural History Museum. The boys were impressed with the dinosaurs - particularly the T Rex exhibit (that moves).


 After a couple of hours we headed next door to the Science museum to see the vehicles and press buttons!



 The Launch Pad was a massive hit.
 Eden was great at the block building! Joplin was quite happy to watch this one!

 Eden even managed to rope in some help when he couldn't stack any higher. I wish I could have captured it on film when it all tumbled down!
 Finally our tummy's told us it was time to leave and so we headed back on the tube to find dinner. 
 We went to Wagamama's as it seemed something we would all enjoy. Eden did amazingly with the child chopsticks and ate most of his dinner with them!
 Yummy food and a great family day out!
