It Just Wouldn’t Be A London Olympics Without Some Rain

Well, the Olympics are here!

I feel as if I have been looking forward to them for ages and finally, here they are.

And where were we during the opening ceremony?

In a field, in a tent, in the middle of England.

That’s right. While the rest of the world watched the opening ceremony on tv, Tim, Josh and I were attending a friends wedding where guests were invited to camp for the weekend.

To be fair, it was a lovely wedding and we did tape the opening ceremony so will go back and watch it when we get some time.

On Friday night there was a big cricket game which Josh really enjoyed.

On Saturday, there was the wedding, complete with hats all around.

Josh was a bit more casual, though he did try on Tim’s hat later in the day.

While we were at the wedding Saturday, my mom was able to go and watch the men’s cycling, the course going right by where we live.

She sent me a picture of them flying by.

We ended up leaving Saturday night (toddlers and weddings just don’t mix), and driving back home late Saturday night.

Early Sunday morning we were up and on our way to the Olympics to see the swimming!

We went to the aquatics centre which was a beautiful building.

It was only the second day of the Olympics, so while we didn’t get to see any medals awarded, we still saw some great races.

We had such a great time.

When it was over, we went and wandered around the Olympic Village for a bit.

Until it started to rain.
