For a while, we all stuck together in the main part, with Ani digging in the sand and making a long train of sand hills, while Ella explored the pirate ship (and Bart and I enjoyed the plentiful seating), but eventually we split up to explore the various sections.
I loved this section with the giant teepees, while Bart and Ella checked out a section with various musical instruments, including panels you could step on to play notes.
Our last stop in the park was the toddler section, with tiny huts, a wooden wagon, some ride-on horses, and a seesaw.
Before we came to Europe, the girls had never even seen a seesaw, but they are everywhere here, and the girls are huge fans. Especially when Bart is around to really give them a fun ride.
It was starting to approach lunchtime, so we decided to continue our Diana theme and head to the nearby Cafe Diana, which Bart’s family has long loved. We sat outside and ordered some delicious pitas (Bart’s chicken tikka pita was especially fantastic). The promised rain finally rolled in and we were glad our table was covered (and that we’d packed the rain cover for the stroller).
We made a quick dash down to the Tube and arrived home in time for naps and quiet time.
The thing I love most about London is that there is always, ALWAYS, more to see and do. I can’t believe how fast our time here is going.
And how many things I’ll never have time to write about here, like tea at Harrods this week, or visiting the Science Museum and the Natural History museum, or checking out the Portobello Market on a Saturday morning.
London really is my favorite city in the world.
