The bags that we took with us on the airplane. 5 of them... haha... so much for light traveling!
Check-in at the airport was fairly easy, thanks to Dave's Premier status (frequent flier miles do pay off! - we get to use the special premier check-in at LAX). We did have to re-pack one of the bags, but really for traveling with so many bags, that was easy. We also were in the Economy Plus section of the plane and shared three seats between the two of us. I was able to stretch out, and although I didn't sleep, it was really nice to have that extra room. Also, the plane had really fun touch-screen TVs on each seat, so I played some boring games (Bejewled or Memory anyone?) and watched two movies to pass the time.
Talking on the phone to people before we leave... saying last minute good-byes!
Upon arrival at Heathrow, we quickly found all of our luggage. We did have a problem with the stroller and stroller box that we brought. As Dave said, it looked like a bear mauled it. Pretty well said. Good news is the stroller still works. Has a bit of cosmetic damage. Bad news is that the bassinet is broken. We're in talks with both United and a company that "repairs" destroyed goods. So, we should either get a new stroller, a new bassinet or it will be fixed. I was so happy that it was just the stroller, because if any of the other boxes had been destroyed, it would have resulted in a "rainshower" of clothes/books/baby items!
Looking at the box, its actually amazing that there wasn't more damage to the stroller....
Here are some pictures of our day here!
Dave before dinner at the pub. I realized I didn't have any pictures of him!
Our "traditional" dinner - fish and chips and "jacket" with beans and cheese.
Had to take the touristy picture of the double-decker bus. We'll have to ride one of them soon!
Almost 32 weeks pregnant :-)
Another picture of the pub. Sorry for the bad order of photos.
