We arrived in London this morning and went to the London Eye and Hyde Park along with other excursions.

We (Jay, Janie, Hannah and Stephen Hutto) are off to beach volleyball tomorrow and then swimming and athletics (track and field) in subsequent days. We have had a great time on our first day and the Londoners have been so nice and helpful. We certainly appreciate Marilyn Nye-Islam and Julie Knisely for helping us prepare for a trip we have been planning for many years.

The attached picture was our family near the Tower Bridge with the Olympic rings. Everyone near the bridge was excited about the bridge being lit up gold in honor of their first gold medal in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Tomorrow, we plan to have dinner with the Ryan family that is visiting from Gainesville also. Our daughter, Hannah, is a huge Ryan Lochte fan so we will be cheering for him and all of the Gators here.
