Summer Olympics

This summer we went on vacation with the Roys and Vines for a couple of days in Maine. We had a lot of fun, and as always, it went by way too fast!

It happened that this year, vacation coincided with the start of the Olympics and we decided that we should celebrate this happenstance with some pint-sized Olympic games of our own!  Adam was awesome and planned out a bunch of fun games before vacation, set them up and coordinated the whole thing.  My one contribution: the donut game (always a good idea)!

Here are the pictures:

To start we, of course, had to have the opening ceremony

The competing nations.  Wait, it looks like the U.S. is in distress...

A neighboring nation offers some aid.

Ok, we're good to go now!

Let the games begin! First up we had an obstacle course of sorts...

Noodle Hurdles

Aquatic-Equestrian Slalom

Styrofoam Tunnel of Terror

Emma and her Mighty Steed

Some jockeys needed some assistance

Next up a water balloon toss!

The champions, poised for battle.

Things escalated quickly and just became a water balloon fight...

Followed quickly by the old "egg on a spoon" race!

And the ever popular "throw a glow-in-the-dark necklace on to a sharp stick" event! 

The toss 'n' pick

Same method.  Same results.

If at first you don't succeed...



try, try...

try, try, try again.

Henry actually got one!

Ok, the sticks proved difficult.  Let's try a bucket.

... *sigh* moving on.

Finally the best event of all (in my humble opinion)! (these are mostly pictures of Emma as she was making such amusing faces)

And then we had closing ceremonies and medals were awarded, but I think I was too busy watching Asher eat all the donuts the kids left in the grass at that point to take any pictures.  But it was awesome. :)
