Olympic Party...









Saturday night our ward had a party honoring the Olympics. It was so much fun, from the food, the games and the decor. Don't you just love the cupcakes in the shape of the Olympic rings? CUTE! Each table had to pick a country. Most of them were make believe countries. We had to draw and color our country flag and we as a table had to decide who would represent us in each event. Chad signed me up for the javelin....which turned out to be a peacock feather. There are no pictures of that, but I did have a stylish approach. There was the 50 foot dash where they literally has to walk 50 feet heel toe heel toe. They had a relay that you carried a hard boiled egg on a spoon. Jumping exercise, which was jump rope, and for the gymnastics it was the ever popular ribbon dancing. Mark represented us on that event. Let me just say that I never laughed so hard while watching him ribbon dance. I had tears streaming down my face. He cart wheeled all the way down. I didn't know he could even do a cart wheel. I don't think he knew he could. He danced and twirled with such style....such grace...with an attempt at a knee slide finale. Only problem is he didn't slide. He hit the ground and stuck...hard. LOL! They made the top 3 do a dance off to the song dancing queen and Mark won the gold! It was hysterical! Everyone had such a great time and I appreciate the activities committee for all their hard work. We did bring lots of food to share and came 2 hours early to help set up, but there was SO MUCH work that they put into it before hand and that's what made it a successful party.

... that's what you call "sticking" the landing.
Great photos.
Loved the cupcake rings.
Can't believe the baby is ONE already. wow. So so cute.
We start school in two weeks. Tristan is going to KINDERGARTEN. My last baby in school. Sigh.
And at least your baby is excited about middle school starting in 6th grade. Perhaps his enthusiasm will be catching?

I've eaten that spaghetti sauce. LOLz. Too many times.

That is an awesome picture of the Gold Medalist during his performance! That's an awesome idea! Since my family is super huge, I think I'll do something like that during our reunion! :)

Thanks for sharing! I hope you're doing well!

Hugs,

That looks just awesome! I am chuckling to myself right now...too bad you didn't record it and put it on YouTube...of course, I think Mark is probably happy you didn't!
