It was a beautiful day for an Olympic event!














Wow! What a whirl-wind day. Starting at 7 am. Jeff and Kathi hosted this Whistler getaway. They own a condo on Blackcomb and made this all possible. We are so grateful to them! Upon arrival we darted to the village in search of souvenirs. Janice NEEDED the red mittens. You had to wait in line to get in the store (see pic of us talking to some interesting Canadians). Then we saw Simon Ammann(Swedish skier) being interviewed and so we decided to catch a glimpse of his DOUBLE GOLD! Hana took the pic of him holding his metals up. Hana also joined a group of Swedes in a song. Then we enjoyed some international cuisine at Mcdonalds. When we got to the gondola we realized our event was delayed. Oh well more starbucks and shopping:) It was sad to see the memorial for the luger who lost his life doing what he loved. This is part one of two...Tomorrow I will post the bobsled event!! TOO MUCH FUN!

We walked into the lobby at the Aspens and there was this giant in ski boots standing there speaking an indecipherable jibberish all his gear had Norway on it. I was that close to an Olympian and was too starstruck to realize it. What a day!
