London, baby

3 days in London was a fun getaway.  We took the Eurostar a quick 2 hours and 15 minutes city center to city center - easy!  The Flemings Hotel Mayfair was in a great location and had little surprises for the kids, which they totally loved.  They are both hooked on hotels.  They love room service, hotel pools (not this time), and tiny robes and slippers.  When we didn't call for milk and cookies before bed the second night, I thought we were going to have a mutiny ;)  I'd love to go back for a longer stay.  We did the quick tourist heavy hotspots but I'd love to see more.

My London first time visit check-list
take a black cab - check!
ride on a vintage Routemaster double decker bus - check!
cross the London Bridge (technically the Tower Bridge, but we crossed the London Bridge too!) - check!
London Eye (ferris wheel the kids requested) - check!
Changing of the guards Buckingham Palace - check!
shop Harrod's - check!

And there is always time for a cupcake, right!?!  We walked by this darling shop in Covent Gardens and just had to go in for a taste test.  Yum!!!
