It seems to be Olympics everywhere at the moment - my peeps are shouting for Team GB every day and then crying when they win! They are very strange sometimes. Here in Yorkshire we are very proud too of our local athletes who have been doing so well in the peeps Olympics - cyclists, rowers, equestrians, runners and especially Jessica Ennis from Sheffield who is a heptathlete and competes in seven events to win her gold medal. This morning on the news they said that if Yorkshire was a country (not just an English county) we would be 11th in the medal table all on our own!
As you can see from the medal I have been honoured to pawticipate in the Blogville Olympics myself and looking forward to Extreme Weather Sports later this week. Thank you so much to all the hosts of these events - they have done such hard work to make them fun for us all. Equestrian was one of my most challenging events and here are some of the practice attempts - including one with a familiar blogging friend!
Not sure about this - somebody is messing about in a boat down there!
It's George! He thought he could race me in his speedboat.
Not on the grass George :-)
Is this better? I got there in the end.
Summer games are taking place in our garden too!
Here are Trilby and Aoife starting a game of bitey face in the sunshine.
We even found some frogs sunning themselves in the pond.
Trilby is doing her best to eat the new plants as they come up by the pond.
Then she puts on an innocent look even when she's covered in mud
"I could never be bad"
Looking forward to more summer games to come!
