One Year Ago (Part 2)

"The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged" (Deuteronomy 31:8).

We truly felt the Lord's presence during our travels.
Another safe flight. Thank-you God.

One year ago today... London England.

London was a nice distraction to what was really on my mind... meeting and holding my baby girl. One more day!!

Here's my journal entry from October 27, 2010:

" ...When we landed, we checked into our Yotel at the airport and left our carry ons there for the day. The flight (from Toronto) went well and we all slept on and off; i loved having Jesse and Nicole on either side of me sleeping/leaning on me!
We took the subway (45 min-1 hr.) to Green Park. It was a beautiful walk in a beautiful park on a beautiful day (about 15 degrees and sunny/cloudy). We strolled in front of Buckingham Palace, walked past Big Ben and walked along the Thames river. We were going to go on the London Eye, (huge ferris wheel), but the line was too long. We walked to Piccadilly Circus and went to Hamley's Toy Store which was a bit of a waste of time (crazy busy and expensive). We walked back to Green Park to go onto the subway and back to the airport.
Where we ate: hot dog vendor at Green Park, donut shop, chocolate covered strawberries along the river, fruit vendor, and pizza and bagels at the airport
Favourite Moments: Jesse- the subway; Trish- everything; Anna- Green Park; Nicole- everything; Paul- walking around and seeing everything and the chocolate covered strawberries/marshmallows!"

Only one flight away from Deborah!!
