Our Olympics and Paralympics

This Summer has been "awesome" as Jasper said, we had fantastic holidays away, but whilst back in blighty we could forget the rubbish weather and get stuck into the Olympics.

We were lucky enough to get to the Quarter Finals of the football at Wembley, the Paralympic rowing at Eton Dorney, and on Saturday we are going to Brands Hatch for the road cycling.

What has really overwhelmed me is the Olympic volunteers - so helpful, so cheery, so informative, the events have been well run, no queuing, everything has been unbelievably, dare I say it, un-British-like!


Just thought I'd share some pics and then have this post as a memory for the children :)
