kenwood house.

one of our first outings in London involved a bit of history, a bit of walking and a bit of yummy food. those three things seem to be the theme of this trip.
we ventured over to kenwood house, a historic mansion near hampstead heath (a large park in London).
we had a bite to eat, then wandered through the house. it felt a bit like a museum to the kids, so after a peek at the fantastic miniatures collection, we headed outside onto the grounds. there is a lovely walk-about around the gardens with loads of places for the kids to run and climb. that was definitely their favourite bit. well, that and the ice cream cones.

one more stop! (on the bus...)

my son, climber extraordinaire. (at the entrance)

hungry for lunch!

giggle box!

love that grin.

too handsome!

exploring inside the house. (these historic mansions are amazing!)

I got tired of carrying this squirmy boy...he loved crawling about all over the slippery wooden floors.

finally found a place for him to play where I didn't have to worry about him touching things he shouldn't!

the columns outside the main doors.

rooflines at the back.

a walk about in the woods.

pretty much my favourite colour. ever.


the back of the house as seen from the walking trail.

the ancient wood, as my children dubbed it.

he loves it when he gets out of the buggy!

seriously. this kid will climb anything.

running, racing...anything to get rid of that energy.

the funny face tree on the way out to the main gates. can you see his crazy face?

another funny face.

waiting for the bus...

heading home. finally tired.
