Happy Firsts

Now that jet lag is wearing off, and sickness is dwindling, we've had some happier firsts the last few days . . .

First Tube Rides and Double Decker Buses 

First trip to Costa for delicious hot cocoa (and sandwiches that did not include mayo)

First time jumping in London

First home cooked meal that we ate around the table - bangers and mash (except not really since I roasted the potatoes)

First chillaxing rainy Sunday afternoon, complete with a visit from the Elder's Quorum President who was dropping off a plate of cookies (and also helped give blessings to our sick kids the day before).

First driving experience . . . we have now both driven are still scared every time we turn on the engine on what feels like the wrong side of the car. 
First Thames and Tower Bridge sightings.  We also made it to 9 3/4 platform at King's Cross but weren't able to get a decent photo with the crowds.

Here's to many more exciting firsts over the next few months!
