So we made it to the airport and we are ready to fly. Our taxi ride was smooth and we had a very nice driver who chatted to Oliver and sang to him! He did, however, think it a very odd arrangement that mum and the son are flying and leaving behind dad and the daughter!
Oliver enjoyed filling out his custom and immigration card and was pleased that the lines were so short. He has bought himself a (heavy) book about wildlife from the Lonely Planet store and currently is playing with the iPads in the Apple Store.
I don't think he quite believed me when I said that we'd have to wait about two and a half hours until we board our plane.
Apparently it's a full flight tonight. I hope he sleeps.
See you in London!
We can’t wait to go to London. We bet it’s going to be so fun and cool. We want to go to the British Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Cartoon Museum. On Sunday we are having lunch with our friend, Martin (not a Martian), at a restaurant near Kings Cross Station.

It’s 12 hours until our plane leaves. We’re catching a taxi to the airport at about 5pm today to go and check in. Between now and then we have to finish packing. But we don’t have to go to school or work today, so that is good.
In just over 36 hours we will be in London.
The first thing we will do there is catch a red double-decker bus to Hamleys toy store in Regent Street.

We are really excited!
