Rory was incredibly excited to catch a real London bus and then a tube to Notting Hill. We loved perusing our old favorite boutique shops before stopping for lunch at the yummy Pizza East (Rory, obviously missing New York, insisted on having a pizza for lunch). After a yummy meal, Rory tried his first ice cream in a cone. He loved it. It lasted nearly an hour and eventually melted and had to be thrown away! Much to his delight, we caught another bus down to Kensington High Street where we had another look at the shops before heading to Holland Park to meet the gorgeous Jacqui, Jerry and Baby Aoife for a picnic. The guys were so sweet in organizing the whole thing and had thought of everything from rugs, to delicious food, to toys for Rory. With the low but still warm evening sun, cricket in the background, a chocolate tart on our plates, lots and lots of chatter, we all had such a wonderful time. A lovely London day.
