Once a year, Oxford and Cambridge send their top 4 tennis players to Wimbledon to compete against selected members of the prestigious All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club at Wimbledon. Because he's that awesome, Nick was one of the four players sent from Oxford to compete. We spent last weekend in Wimbledon watching Nick compete and then hanging out in London for a while aftewards. Here are some photos of our adventure:
Stella watched Nick play through the glass.
Check out that serve!
Stella was allowed "outside" to watch some of the match... until she started yelling, "Hi Dadda! HI!"
I promise his match was much more exciting than Stella is making it out to be.

Stella was a perfect tennis spectator - and all the members and players were praising her on her excellent behavior during both the matches and the formal brunch and the high tea afterwards.
Trophies in the entryway @ Center court.
Tea, sandwiches and scones were served after the matches were over.
She's obviously not grasping the coolness of it all...

The three of us celebrated by staying at a beautiful hotel near the Chelsea Bridge in London.
