My husband surprised Henry and I last night with tickets to the Athletics at the Olympic Stadium this morning. He had been trying all week to get some more tickets and was successful late yesterday evening! So we had an early start this morning to get into Stratford, London. We had a fantastic morning, although I was really tired as I had only 2 hours sleep last night. Never mind Henry, I could here him chatting away all night he was so excited to be going again.
This is rather a picture heavy post, so I hope you enjoy it!
Not sure what this structure is, but it certainly caught Henry's eye!
Looks like someone else smuggled themselves into the Olympic stadium as well. Didn't spot Kit there in my pocket.
The stadium was rather awe inspiring.
The Olympic torch burning brightly
Henry can't wait for all the action to start.
Not sure what caught Henry's eye, I think it was the young boy playing behind me.
Now can you imagine Henry's excitement when he saw the Henry sized Mini - I had to stop him rushing down and onto the arena and he pestered me non-stop to get him one, he thought it was so cool the way it took the disc's back to the start line.
He was sure there was someone in them driving them!
He enjoyed watching the women's hurdles and is all set to build some hurdles in the garden to have a go.
The men's 1500 metres also inspired him
Caught in action warming up!
Even though I had partly dreaded going out today as I have been a bit out of sorts lately I really enjoyed the day very much, as did Henry.
After the mornings events we took the time to walk around the Olympic park and enjoyed the gardens.
Henry wrote a message of support for Team GB and NZ and hung it up in the Olympic Garden, so if anyone is still to go - make sure you look out for Henry's message!
Henry wasn't sure what to think of the Alien
He certainly admired this though!
Enjoying a spot of wall climbing.
Strolling through the gardens
Now the highlight of Henry's visit must have been the three army guys 'begging' to pose with Henry running. ;-)
Thanks guys, you made Henry's day - sorry he wanted to keep his pin badge though, but he would have been distraught to have to give it up.
We discovered we had a stowaway from the Olympics when we arrived home....apparently Henry had suggested he come home with us
