Amazing Olympic Memories: the Photo Blog Entry

Yesterday two friends and I took our six (collectively) kids out of school for the morning so we could attend the 2010 Olympic Torch Relay celebrations at Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park (site of many of the events at the 1988 Olympic Winter Games in this city). 

Here are some visual memories of the event:

(I said the memories were amazing, not necessarily the pictures!)

Hoping these are memories my kids will hold close forever.

    What a great experience for the kids (& you), Kath. Great idea!
    I have to say that I am ordering some of those mittens (for all of us) NOW!! I love that ALL of the proceeds go to Canadian athletes. They need all of our support. Go Canada!!
