In June Todd and I had an amazing opportunity to travel with my former college tennis coach and some former Cornell tennis players to Wimbledon. We had an amazing trip and now that we are home it seems so surreal that it actually happened. We were supposed to leave on Friday and arrive in London on Saturday morning to meet up with the group. We got a call at 10 am informing us that our 5pm flight out of KC was cancelled. I spent an hour on the phone with United and found out we could fly out at 2pm if we could get to the airport on time. So we rushed around, finished packing and made it to the airport in time. We waited over 3 hours for that flight to be cancelled as well. At this point we couldn't find a flight to get us to London by Saturday morning so we went back home. We got up early Saturday morning for a flight to Chicago and ended up flying to London at 6pm(after a 6 hour layover). We were just excited to finally arrive!!!

Todd and I did a lot of walking in the afternoon. We went by Buckingham Palace.

Friday was our last day. Todd went back for more tennis at Wimbledon, while I stuck with most of the group and went to Kensington Palace, a tea house, gardens, and shopping at Harrods. We spent the end of our night at a pub watching Federer play. We had an amazing trip and we are forever thankful to Fred for planning such a spectacular trip!
