London Part 4

London is such a beautiful city, I felt like every street we walked down was more pretty than the last. I would love to live there someday!

We ate at the most British looking restaurant called The Churchill Arms with our friends who live in London. Their four little girls sure are the cutest! They were so good with Olivia and kept taking turns holding her.

LOVE all of the flowers.

Nearby is Kensington Palace and Gardens, so we walked around this area with them (while the girls rode scooters everywhere - so smart!).

Love these sweet girls!

Inside of Kensington Palace right now there is a fashion exhibit that displays dresses worn by Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, and other royalty. They, of course, are so detailed and amazing.

Olivia got spoiled with so much attention on this trip :)

One of my favorite areas was Soho - this would be the best place to do Christmas shopping! The stores here are amazing.

And, the streets are so pretty! We walked all over Regent Street (the best), Oxford, Carnaby, Piccadilly, and Kingly street.

We saw all of the iconic London stores including Fortnum & Mason...

... Cath Kidston (I bought Olivia an outfit here, the floral patterns are just to die for!)...

...and Liberty (the displays and floral fabrics are amazing!). Every store you could ever want is here. Also, Soho is where my friends and I had tea at Sketch (and I've heard another awesome but much cheaper place to get tea here is the Ham Yard Hotel).

We also explored the Columbia Road Flower Market, which I would for sure come to all of the time if I lived here. The flowers are so cheap and gorgeous!

We walked SO many streets during our visit, and this by far is the most colorful street that I found in all of London! It's Bywater street. How fun would it be to live here?

Also, how fun would it be to live in a pink house? :)

We pushed our stroller to the top of Primrose hill - which I counted as my workout for the day!

There were tons of people hanging out at the top & you can see the city well from here

If you have a baby, one thing that is great about London is that you can literally push your whole stroller inside of their taxi cabs! So convenient, isn't this amazing?

Our friends Courtney and PJ live in London, so we stopped by there place to meet their cute baby girl! Also, my good friends Natasha and Stephanie were in town visiting at the same time as us, so I met up with them a lot. It was so fun seeing friends while traveling!

When we flew home from London, we were so lucky because Delta gave us a bassinet for Olivia to sleep in. She slept like an angel on the way home. This seriously is a must if you are taking a long flight with a baby!

Cheers London!
