Vacation 2008 - Last Post

Friday (08-08-08) was the last day we did something special for our vacation. We used the Olympics as a starting theme and built up from there. We started by taking our girls to see Kung Fu Panda at the cheap theater. Since the Olympics were to be held in China.

Then we came home and had Wii Olympics for our girls. This was a lot of fun to watch them compete with each other. We even printed up medals for them and awarded them for each sport. We had competitions in bowling, baseball, tennis and golf. Here are the girls with their "hardware."

Abby was a little tired from all the excitement.

We picked up Chinese food for dinner. And watched part of the opening ceremonies. It was really neat to see the smaller countries' uniforms, they were actually original. We put the girls to bed about 10:00 pm (two hours after their bed time). I kept Richard up to watch the United States walk in. I was very disappointed with the uniforms and that the cameras spent most of their time on Kobe Bryant. I would have rather have seen some of the lesser known athletes. We were specifically watching for Allyson Felix, but later found out she did not participate that night. She was in another part of China preparing for her race. 

All in all it was a great day to make good memories with our daughters.

I forgot to post my favorite camp picture. It is of my amazing husband. 

Thank you for stopping by!
