Olympics London 2012 - 52 Photo Project - Week 30

So it was the first week of the holidays. I managed not to kill them and prevent them from killing each other. Apart from that there was dress shopping for holiday later this year (dismal), lots of sun and water splashing (fantastic fun), the usual working mum time juggling and the Olympics and London 2012 (how amazing was that opening ceremony?)

Actually smallest and I didn't go to an Olympic Event but we soaked up the atmosphere and sneaked in a trip to the biggest toy shop EVER (you know the one I mean) and still managed to catch a glimpse of Team GB cycling on the Mall (a medal was not to be but it was exciting nonetheless).
