After breakfast overlooking St Pancras Station we headed to Oxford Street to meet Katie, who was in London staying with her brother and his family.
We planned a morning of shopping.
Oliver not so keen on spending time in a cosmetics shop
I was very pleased to be able to spend some time in Liberty.
We then wandered down Oxford Street stopping off at many stores for the girls to spend their birthday money.
time for a cupcake stop
a yummy discovery - sparkling elderflower drink
Oliver and Andrew gave up on the shopping and visited the Natural History Museum.
We all met up again for a picnic lunch in Hyde Park - sandwiches constructed on our knees.
