A Weekend In London - Day 2

Stop 4 - Buckingham Palace: After arriving at the London Eye and finding that it was closed for maintenance, we grabbed the bus and headed over to Buckingham Palace to watch the Changing of the Guard.

Stop 5 - Open Top Bus Tour: During our stay, we used the open top buses as our primary means of transportation. The kids were most excited about the fact that they didn't have to wear a seat belt while driving around.

Stop 6 - Natural History Museum: We made a quick stop at the Natural History Museum to see a few of the larger displays we thought the kids would like. The highlights were the life-size dinosaur and blue whale displays. We found that Maeli was not particularly fond of the life-size hippopotamus display.

Stop 7 - Hyde Park: Due to the cold weather, we decided to forgo our initial plan of having a picnic in the park and took a stroll through the park instead. The kids particularly enjoyed chasing the birds along the lakeside.

Stop 8 - Covent Garden: Since we missed the street performers the night before, we headed back to Covent Garden to see what all the hype was about. The kids were thrilled to find that there was a performer doing balloon animals. Both kids ended the night happy with a flower balloon hat and a balloon turtle.
