we had such a wonderful easter holiday yesterday here in london! i had a few minutes this morning to get a bunch of our easter pictures from the day ready for the blog, so here they are! we went to church, ate a lot of good food, a lot of yummy treats (#maitrechoux for the win!) and were able to see some old dear friends as well.
some photos from the day…
my jumpsuit is from HERE by the way!
after church, we watched this man, maxwell the bubbleologist, put on the coolest show all with bubbles just down the street. i loved everything he said to the kids as he performed. he talked about how all of them have two hands, and they can use them to make music or art or do anything in the world! or they can use them to just do games or text on their electronics, but what a waste of two hands. when he messed up or pretended to make mistakes, he asked the kids and crowd over and over what to do when you fail. they all had to yell back “try again!” it was amazing how creative and outside the box he was with his bubble magic. we loved it.
getting wiggles out before dinner!
we enjoyed a sunday roast at the mitre for easter dinner. the roasted chicken (which the kids had) was our very favorite.
samson finished a side of peas that papa ordered him to eat with his roast so quickly, he said, “hey papa! can you order me six more plates of peas???” haha! he ate two more helpings of them.
kinder easter eggs filled with another egg with toys inside! my kids loved them.
quite possibly the most delicious thing i’ve had here in london, came from maitre choux. we ordered four eclairs and devoured them so quickly outside, we went back and ordered four more. the light pink one with the raspberry on top was my all-time favorite. i think i ate three! and i’m trying to find a way to get back over there for more before we leave london!
but honestly, all of them were just as delicious as they were gorgeous.
we have so enjoyed getting to see london and meeting many of the wonderful people here. it’s sad to think about what happened a few weeks ago on this bridge, but it’s been wonderful to see how resilient the city is and also how kind and helpful the people of london have been. we have seriously fallen in love with this place.
at the end of the day, we stopped by holland park to see old friends from our days in DC who now live in london. we walked by the most beautiful tulip gardens and also so many stunning peacocks who were just hanging out on the grounds!
hope you all had a wonderful easter holiday with those you love! we are so excited to get out and explore a little more of london today, although to be honest, it looks like spring has come to stay in new york and i’m a little sad to be missing it. can’t wait to get home!
the kids trench coats are from here. their rain boots are from here (and to answer a few questions i have received about having the kids in rain boots, my little ones actually prefer them to sneakers and find them quite comfortable!)
