Matt, the boys and I drove to Seattle on Thursday afternoon and stayed at an airport hotel so we could grab Ciara first thing in the morning. When she texted us at 6:45 am on Friday to tell us that she had landed we were all still in bed but we managed to scramble out of bed and go pick her up. And then we were off....
We made it to the border...Peace Arch State Park...
And those lovely Canadians let us in.....
We stayed in a great hotel right on the water in Vancouver with a killer view, walking distance to BC Place, the fantastic indoor stadium where the games were played.
Oh and look who we bumped into just out walking around Vancouver...the entire English Rugby Sevens team...oh yeah baby!!!!
So onto the rugby. If you know anything about sevens you will know the tournament is like a huge dress up party. We decided to go as these guys.
Max added a cape to his ensemble.
And this is our good looking group waiting to get in.
The venue was great and we watched loads of games.
Of course I saw my new BFFs play against our U.S team.
And we watched Australia play the host team...wow...65,000 Canadians can really make a lot of noise. And good news for them,( and bad news for us) the locals won.
