Love, Set, Match

We have been all over London today! This morning we started off with a walk in Hyde Park. As we were walking over to Speaker's Corner, the most disgusting thing happened! A pigeon full on nailed me! GROSS! Luckily, we had napkins, and cleaned it up out of my hair, face, jacket, jeans, and shoe! We walked along the Serpentine River over to Kensington Gardens and Notting Hill. We got on the tube and headed to Wimbledon. Wimbledon was probably the highlight of the day. Once we got off the train, we walked for about fifteen minutes until we found ourselves at the gate of Wimbledon right in the middle of a neighborhood. We spent some time in the Wimbledon Museum, and had lunch at the cafe. From there, we headed to Kew Gardens. There are three hundred acres of botanical delights grace Kew Gardens, which lies on the south bank of the Thames River between Richmond and Kew in the suburbs of south-west London. The gardens are Royal because for many years the estates that now form the gardens were owned by members of the Royal family. Eww! Cleaning up after the pigeon disaster!In Kensington Gardens at Mom's favorite cottage.Actual plates and cups of Wimbledon!Hangin' out at Wimbledon.Mom having the traditional strawberries and cream at Wimbledon!So cute!Venus, Serena, and Sampras.Kew Gardens.Green house fog.
Papsk and me on the tube, we spent a lot of time on the tube today! We had so much fun!
