This post is a little different to my usual content but a little variety now and then never hurt anyone :)
So Saturday 28th July, me and my family woke up obscenely early and got on the train to go to the Olympics. My dad designed the basketball arena so wanted to see it up close and being used so we got tickets to the Women's Basketball :)

The basketball arena up close (excuse the giant finger!)
The park was exciting, lots to see and do, and all the buildings were pretty amazing (not as good as my dad's though, obvs!), there was even the world's largest McDonald's.
My first sight of the park (which I think is the aquatic centre)
The BP area where you could offset your travel for getting to the games (which again my dad had a hand in designing)

Me looking a bit ridiculous with the Olympic mascot!
We had a lovely day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The only downside was, that because of the opening ceremony we only had about four hours sleep, so by the end of the day we were exhausted :( We got a train home at about half ten and as soon as we sat down we all just fell asleep! A nice family day out all in all.
Are any of you going to the Olympics, or have gone?
