London for the day

We got up early and the weather didn't seem that good, so a decision was made to go to London. We had to pick up a card and post a parcel on the way, but we managed to get the 10.30am train into Waterloo. We were meet by some people from Virgin giving out ice lollies, oh lovely thought Thomas... We then got the tube and were joined by two guys playing guitars all the way to Kensington, where we grabbed something to eat with our McDonald's vouchers. We then took Thomas to somewhere he has always wanted to go, The Natural History Museum. We spent the best part the afternoon seeing what we could, you just can't see it all. Thomas loved it and his favourite was the Dinosaurs and the human body section. It was surprising how many species he knew. He is also so used to something big and hairy behind him (his Uncle Del)We then took the tube to Trafalgar Square and watched the Paralympics, sitting on the water fountains for a hour. How do they do it! Very inspirational!
We were then getting a bit peckish again and had dinner at Pizza Express. We then walked back to Waterloo via Downing street and Westminster and Thomas watched Big Ben strike eight times, going past the big wheel getting to Waterloo for 8.30pm. We got back to Derwent6 at 9.30pm...shattered!!
