Day 3 with Friends!

Our last two days in London were spent with friends.   A little less walking and a little warmer.  Nick was working Wednesday through Friday all day so we made plans to get out of the hotel. Wednesday we met up with Christine and Megan in Covent Garden (my favorite area of town)!  We started off at the Transport Museum which came highly recommended by everyone!  Christine pulled Megan out of school and took the train into the city.  We were all so so thankful to have a little more time with our friends.

Covent Garden where the decorations were amazing! 
Lunch where we were not ashamed to pull out any available Apple products to keep people quiet. 
This is one of the Chapman's favorite coffee places, Nero...and now its mine, all because of the Amaretto latte. 
Took the bridge to walk Megs and Christine back to their train station.  
On our way back to the hotel we stopped for a ride on this beautiful carousel, in what I think its called the South Bank area.  Its right on the river near the Eye. There were little Christmas markets set up.  It was like a movie, once again.
After Daddy finished with work, we took a taxi and were dropped off for dinner.  Every where we looked was WAY too sophisticated for us and the 3 babes so we walked some more and decided to just go ahead to, Winter Wonderland.   A popular Christmas festival in Hyde Park full of incredible food and drink, ice skating, rides, entertainment, games, etc.  Since the British schools weren't out for the holiday it was line-free but plenty full of adults enjoying some mulled wine after work :)
I don't have a picture of our dinner which was mouthwatering!  Real Belgium waffles and German sausage.  Good lordy! 
The boys enjoyed a few rides.  No fear. 
Brooks and Daddy screaming!
Barrett and I loved the bumper cars. 
One last game (almost injuring the poor guy working the booth). 
That finished up day 3 in the city!
