Redbourn, England

Meeting the younger generation

sunny 70 °F

From Belgrade, we flew to Luton and were greeted by Robin’s cousin Kate, and her two little girls, Caitlin and Erin. The girls mad us a pretty awesome homemade welcome sign! It had been over 6 years since we were in England for Kate’s wedding and we were excited to see how big the girls were. We enjoyed a good taste of ‘real life’ by enjoying some day to day activities like talking the kids to preschool, tumbling with them in gymnastics class, swimming in the pool, and taking their dog Oakley for walks. The best part about England is that there is a ‘right to wander’ law that makes trespassing non-existent… so are also loads and loads of greenways that travel through the city and into the woods!

The highlight must have been babysitting for a day when Kate’s brother Mike and wife Jacqui, came with their two little boys. While they were off to the Olympics, we had a through life lesson on how hard it was to take care of 4 little kids. At the end of the day, we learned some invaluable new strategies for potty training 3 year olds :-)
