I love the Olympics. I love everything it represents – Faster. Higher. Stronger. I love the unification of countries. I love healthy competition. I love seeing people fulfill their Olympic dreams. Last night we celebrated by decorating, cooking, and watching the opening ceremonies.
Decorating – Inspired by One Perfect Day, Cole created Olympic rings for our house.
Cooking – Chet and I made cookies. Cole came home from playing with his cousins just in time to help decorate. We also made fish and chips for dinner (not pictures. I forgot!)
Even Chet’s feet got into the Olympic spirit. I’ve had a soft spot for England since visiting in high school and after I feel in love with British Literature in college.
Fun Fact: Both my baby boys were born during a summer Olympic year. I have great memories of watching the 2004 Olympics with Cole in my arms. I think 2012 will produce similar memories!
