We drove to Doncaster and boarded the train there so as to split the journey up a bit and kept busy on the train with lots of stickers and magazines
Arriving at Kings Cross - everything was really well signed and there were helpful Games volunteers everywhere
Harry loved the underground - he was a natural at navigating it
We headed straight out to see the sights around Westminster. Harry is already waiting for the next trip so we can go on the London Eye!
Peter spent about ten minutes stomping in the only puddle in sight, to the amusement of passers-by!
We made a last stop at Trafalgar Square, where we saw fans decked in flags
A very late bedtime
But everyone woke up in good moods and on day 2 we had tickets to the Olympic area of Hyde Park, so we went via Buckingham Palace
Hyde Park was perfect for families - it was a bit like a festival site - lots of food options, big screens and space. We saw weightlifting, hockey, judo and archery. Harry had a look at volleyball and enjoyed The Sun tent where he got a balloon dog and played table football. It would have been great to actually go in the Olympic Park but there were no tickets for that so this was the next best thing.
We were all pretty tired but loved it! We feel like we were a small part of the Olympics and we also had a lovely time seeing some other sights. We are feeling high in Olympic spirit at our house now - Harry is interested in a few of the events on TV and we are doing some themed activities which I will post later. I think Harry is playing on my Olympic mood by asking for (and getting) chocolate mascots wherever we see them!
