Skiing and sledding, so much fun!

A big day for Canada!

It was a day of recuperating after Tuesday's Olympic excitement. We played on the nearby sledding hill in the morning and went skiing in the afternoon. Later on we went to Whistler Village where the Canadians were celebrating silver and gold medals wins in women's bobsled (the event we attended on Tuesday), silver in short track skating and bronze in speed skating. In addition to the US bronze in women's bobsled and Canada's win over Russia in men's hockey, the place was rocking. Below are pictures from the day.

On Thursday, we pack up and start the drive back home. We plan to spend the night in Seattle and then drive to Portland on Friday to attend a going away party for our close friends the Crawford family. Keith, Deb, Ollie and Emmet are moving to London for a new job. We sure will miss them.

We'll try to blog as we go...depending on internet access.

Go USA!
