There is a guy whose sole job it is to throw your scarf when the photographer takes his picture. MAGIC.
Then we bought an Oyster Card for each of us and hopped on the Tube to the Kensington Stop towards our hotel. We checked in at the Pelham hotel, which was lovely. It was right across the street from a tube stop, right down the street from a few museums and the LDS church, and on the same road as Harrod's. Plus, Kensington was just a lovely neighborhood. So pretty and clean (but really, all of London was really clean). In Kensington they don't let hotels put out street signs, they're only allowed right on the wall next to the door. It keeps the neighborhoods looking lovely.
Our room was great, pretty spacious and had a nice bathroom (which was a good thing because it was our most expensive hotel), but we loved it and would stay there again.
We woke up early the next morning to go to church at 9:00 AM at the nearby ward building. We ate some granola bars for breakfast and walked three minutes up the street to arrive just in time for church. Well it turns out, it was Stake Conference in London that day, too. So we were an HOUR early for church. The missionaries invited us in, and we sat on some of the benches in the lobby area and watched a few videos about the history of the church in the Hyde Park Stake. Some of them were really interesting.
After we dropped off our clean laundry, we took the tube up to Notting Hill Gate and basically walked West to East all the way across London, starting with Notting Hill and ending at Buckingham Palace.
I bought a few pairs of rain boots for the boys at the Hunter store, because they were like fifteen dollars cheaper in London than they are here at Nordstrom! Crazy.
