Olympians!!!

After my midwife's appointment on Saturday we went for a stroll down to the Salamanca markets to grab something to eat and have a nosey at the stalls.  After we got our lunch we headed for the lawns outside parliament house and there was a huge crowd gathered so we headed over and there was a stage with some of the Olympians on it.




I must say even though I'm not really into sports or the Olympics it was really great to see them up there getting supported by the Australian public.  I think this is especially significant after all the pressure that was put on these 'sporting heroes' to win gold for Australia throughout the games.  I think it's a pretty awesome achievement to even be able to make it to the Olympics.  So well done to all the Olympians and good luck to all the Paralympians!




P.S: Still no sign of baby :(

  1. Oh, when is your baby due (you probably don't need to be asked!). All of mine have been a minimum of 4 days overdue. Expecting this next one (due in October) to be the same.

    I'm not that big on the Olympics either, but could definitely see myself getting caught up in the hype!
