If You Were Wondering Where I've Been...

I've been busy planning the opening ceremony for the Olympics.

(Well, the opening party for our family, that is.)

Coordinating the arrival of the athletes was a bugger of a job...
('Cuz some were completely overjoyed to be there and have their picture taken.)

But as you can see, the delegations from USA and France at least arrived safely.

Even road construction could not stop our torch ceremony.

Although we really missed David Beckham
(some of us more than others...)

And we had to re-do our torch run two or three times to get it down.

Just in case you were wondering who was texting Rowan...

It was Lib

And our fish and chips were rather smashing, if I do say.

Happy Olympics.
Whew.  That was a ton of work people.  (Have you ever made a double-deckered bus or a torch???)

From now until the closing ceremonies, I will be glued to my tv...

Happy Independence Day!

May all your flags wave proudly, your sparklers light the first time, and all those hot dogs (gross!) not burn on the grill...

 May we always live in the
Land of the Free!
