Our only Saturday was fun; Iâ€™d been looking forward to it all week.
I had a date with two very special kids; Ms. V. and her little brother Benjy took us out to the Science Museum.
V & B are children of my BFF JM, theyâ€™re the most adorable well-behaved and well-adjusted kids Iâ€™ve ever known.
Theyâ€™re a real testament to their parents, if I could be half the mom JM is, Iâ€™d throw my convictions out and start having kids right away.
The Science Museum is awesome! I think itâ€™s one of the best museums in London for wholesome fun for all the family.
Thereâ€™re several exhibitions and everyoneâ€™s bound to find something that captivates them.
Seriously, I didnâ€™t want to leave.
The interactive exhibitions make learning fun, especially for kids. Thereâ€™s even a special wonderful play area for children.
We couldnâ€™t get through all the exhibitions, I really enjoyed the â€˜Plasticityâ€™ exhibition, probably because Iâ€™d re-watched Saving Grace (a bizarre true-story tragedy about the Baekeland family) with my mom the week before.
From the museum we made our way to Oxford Street and took a pedicab to Chinatown.
The pedicab ride was quite exciting and fun â€“ itâ€™s a great way to tour the city.
Londonâ€™s Chinatown is located on Gerard Street close to Piccadilly Circus.
Itâ€™s bright, colourful with Chinese decor and like other Chinatowns feels vibrant and alive.
We didnâ€™t do much exploring because we were hungry; we had a nice scrumptious dinner.
Benjy learned the word â€˜allergicâ€™ and decided he was allergic to everything, it was very cute and funny the way he said it so earnestly.
All too soon it was time to part ways with the little darlings, we said our tearful goodbyes and the train whisked them away.
