The London Eye

On our first full day in London, we rode one of those hop on-hop off buses with Ian's whole family (and I got nothing out of it with Callum on my lap the whole time) and also rode the London Eye. My father in law booked us our own capsule, which was pretty dang cool. Not only did we not have to wait in the mammoth of a line, but it was fun just being us in the capsule, which also gave the kids more free space to roam and do as they would like. 

Connor and Callum were most in to the experience, with Connor obviously being more aware of what was going on and getting something out of it. Isla, on the other hand, was tortured to be along for the ride. Thankfully she didn't pitch a fit, but except for the family photo that we made her be in, she sat "safely" on the bench in the middle of the capsule. The London Eye is always a beautiful and fun experience. Several years ago we did it at night, which was super cool. I actually forgot to stop and look at a ton of the view and see what I could spot because I was so busy talking to the kids and seeing what they were seeing. This is just one of those things that never gets old and I would totally go on again and again...if it weren't for the insane crowds.

We crammed a LOT of stuff in to our week in London, so expect to hear much more about it coming up.
