Vancouver 2010 Olympics

Philip has been anticipating the Vancouver 2010 Olympics since we met. I remember him bragging that they would be in his hometown when we got married almost 6 years ago. He has reminded me almost every year since. I am quite surprised that he did not plan a trip there for the occasion.

However, he did want to party for the opening ceremonies. So, we put up the flags, decorated, and made some good food.

Don't worry, I did not forget the American flag. How could I?

It was actually quite fun. We made our version of Poutine which I am sure was not nearly as good as the original. I don't think the gravy was hot enough because the cheese didn't melt.

One of our fellow Canadian friends made nanaimo bars. We also had purogies, and mini quiche. It was really fun, and we enjoyed our Houston version of the 2010 olympic opening ceremonies.

We were also super excited and happy when Alexandre Bilodeau won Canada's first gold in their home olympic games.

This next week should be interesting, and we look forward to watching more.

How fun are you guys? I think that sounded like a blast! I thought that the Olympics were starting on the 13th. Imagine how bummed I was when I found out that I missed it. I would of missed it anyway since it was my son's birthday that night.

Too bad about all that extra fabric. On the bright side, you can take a while to make the quilt and it can be ready when she does get married. :)

I just read about your son. It was so touching to read about your experience with him. I'm sure that the spirit was so strong with you that special day.
