London, First Peek

Yesterday we made it to London! The flight was pretty painless baby-wise since Lois slept almost the entire way, but woah, it was a bumpy ride! It felt like we were in a speed boat on rough waters much of the flight.  But I just put my headphones on, turned up the music and tried to take those bumps in stride along with the beat.  It's great to be here now. We're staying in the same place, in the same neighborhood (Bloomsbury) as last time, so it was really neat to walk around last night and this morning and know our around.  A very good feeling when you travel, or in this case, move to a new country!  Woah, that sounds weird still.  Can't believe we live here now.  Here's a peek from yesterday's ride and the neighborhood this morning.  It's very cold here (with a bit of snow on the ground!), but it looks like it will be a beautiful day.
