Flashback Friday: A look at August

First, some real nostalgia. I looked back in our archives and saw what we published on this same day in 2006: Spend a week in Hampstead (London, baby!) The mom who wrote up this one week itinerary for baby-friendly London now lives in our fair city of Berkeley, California, and the baby she was writing about started Kindergarten this week.  She also has a preschooler and one one the way. Moral of the story: Blogging is awesome. And so are babies.
