Adieu !!

~Adieu Olympic 
Adieu Google Fruit Games~ 

While Rio was busy with the spectacular 
closing ceremonies of Olympic 2016 and 
Google was all ready to wrap up the super 
Doodle Fruit Games my daughter and I were 
craving for some more fruity games . 
Though we are not much of a online /app 
gaming family but the daily super cute google
doodles that kept popping for 17 days in cutest 
new avatars totally stole our hearts.
To add a zing to the sunny sunday morning 
(yesterday) , we decided to make a few 
cutie avatars  come alive !!!!

Mr Orange - the Golfer 

Orange, Banana, grapes, cucumber, kiwi, beans

Ms Appleberry - the athlete 
(Apple mocks the strawberry in this 
no strawberry season here ) 

Apple, Banana, grapes, cucumber, kiwi, orange 

Ms Mango - the Badminton Champ 

Our  very own super talented PV Sindhu who 
bagged wonderful Silver for our country 
looked radiant in  bright yellow costume on
 the final day of the match !! How we
 cheered like super enthusiasts throughout 
her match and were truly bowled over by 
her super duper performance!!  

Mango, Kiwi, banana , grapes, tomato n cheese 

The  Apple Wrestlers

It was the first time we stayed glued to the 
wrestling match when the female super wrestler 
from our country was in the ring …. the chivalry 
and efforts displayed by Sakshi Malik were 
just out of the world !Her bronze n never say die
 attitude created history when she became the first
 female Indian wrestler to clinch an Olympic medal. 

Apple, Banana, grapes, kiwi, 

Olympic cookies from the blog archives .
Google doodles for ref only. 

The endless discussion over Rio Olympic, the 
 2020 Olympics at Tokyo,the significance of 
sports in ones life and the importance of fibre
 and a balanced diet for a healthy life 
along with some cute fruit doodles turned a 
simple morning to a wonderful chirpy family
 time morning. 
After all these are the little joys of life !!!!!
