We have a beautiful view of Hyde Park from our hotel room.
We arrived at the London Heathrow Airport this morning. We had to wait for quite awhile to finally get a gate so we could get off the airplane to catch the connecting flight from JFK to London. We barely made it in time and after we were all aboard we waited over an hour before we could take off.
Jimmy, Michelle and their children, Jay, Kandilyn and their boys, Merrill, Wayne and I flew over together on the same flight. We actually had dinner and breakfast on the flight to London! We had to pay $2.00 for a drink on an airline we took a couple of months ago. I watched a couple of free, newly released movies, parts of a couple other movies and took a couple of naps on the trip.
It was so nice to see many of the Osmond's friends at the airport welcoming us. We all got on a bus and enjoyed seeing the sights again as we drove to the hotel only to find out that the rooms wouldn't be ready until after 2:00 pm. The hotel found us one hotel room with a king size bed that was available where the whole family could rest, leave their bags, etc. Wayne headed for the bed and was immediately asleep. We're now in our own room with a beautiful view of Hyde Park. It's really fun to be back in England!
