Pip, Poppy and Ollie Take London

Pip, Poppy and Ollie-  the British alter-egos of my sister Katie, myself, and the hubs- lived it up in London last week. Pip was in town visiting and we took full advantage of every day, walking here, there and everywhere, watching Wimbledon at our favorite neighborhood spots and acting like 12 year-olds at times (our maturity levels took a huge dive with each passing day, it’s a sister thing). Here are a few of the highlights!

Surprising Pip at the airport and her priceless reaction.
