Olympic fever

So the Olympics have come to a close after two weeks of fantastic sporting action. On a recent trip to London for a birthday celebration we were able to soak up the fantastic atmosphere that the games generated. We were a little concerned about how busy it would be, but we needn't have worried. London it seems couldn't have been running more efficiently and everyone was so friendly. Not to say that it isn't normally a friendly city, it just seemed everyone was making that extra bit of effort to ensure everything ran smoothly. 

A little bit of light reading for the train...!

Outside City Hall they had a big screen and lots of activities to get involved in.

John even lent a hand at drawing some Olympic events...

Some of the Little Blue Zebra family were lucky enough to get tickets to see some of the action and experience the amazing atmosphere in the stadiums and Olympic park. 

We bought a few souvenirs home to inspire the next generation...
