We love the Olympics! We have been watching the TV way more than usual, and my boys have been telling me which sports they plan to compete in when they grow up (bobsledding, snowboarding, and downhill skiing). It has been really fun!
We watched the opening ceremonies last night and I even made Russian blini for my kids. We hoped to wake up to our own winter wonderland. But alas, it was raining this morning!
So we drove up the canyon this morning to find some snow and participate in our own winter sports. We found plenty of snow, and fun!
We intended to go sledding at a location further up the canyon, however my van was disqualified due to lack of four-wheel drive. But team Honey was not defeated! We turned around and found a picnic area to stop at and play our snow games. The first game commenced as soon as the competitors were properly dressed. Eli was victorious in the cross-country hill climb, and Miss Aubrey definitely won gold in snow angel creation.
Jonah dominated the field with his snow ball rolling. You should see the huge snowman we made!!
There were some snow sports that were not officially sanctioned, however the kids all participated in snow-eating, no matter how much I tried to discourage them!
Silly kids! Of course the traditional snowball-throwing competition was also a part of our winter games. As you can see, the competitors had no trouble making snowballs of epic proportions!
I am not sure if there was judging in the category of cuteness, but I think Miss Aubrey was a definitely a medalist!
What an epic day we had at the winter games! It was wonderful.
Today was My Day! I felt like a gold medal mommy! Even though it took quite a bit of effort on my part and I was tempted to take the easy path, I chose to take the kids on an adventure rather than sit around and watch it rain.
It was a beautiful day!
