On Saturday 4th August, we traveled to Nottingham, left the kids with my Mum and Dad, and then picked up my brother Robin, his son Adam, and friend Martin Devine, and traveled to Manchester.
Robin had got us all tickets to see the Quarter Final Men's Football of the Olympics, held at Manchester United's ground Old Trafford. We knew that Japan and Egypt had got through, so decided to support Japan!
Scott joining in a Mexican wave! We were great supporters!
Martin, Robin and Adam.
At one point, we were on the televised coverage of the match... you can see Scott on the left in a light blue shirt (I am behind the ref, with the white T-shirt and arm sticking out), and there is Martin in black. Robin was in full view too, but I can't find a picture with him in too - this one is just from Martin's facebook profile picture. What a laugh!!
It's a BIG place.
It's all been developed really nicely, and had a super Olympic atmosphere about the place.
We stayed the night at Mum and Dad's and went to church in Nottingham the next day, and hung around with everyone in the afternoon.
My niece Bobbie, on the rocking horse Tom got for his 1st birthday from Scott's Mum and Dad!
