It was a day off from "work" today and I had a list of errands to take care of. As I headed over the bridge, I noticed how amazing the Oval looked in the sun, all done up for the Olympics. It has been so cool to watch the long track speedskating events on tv, knowing that we have skated on that same ice! That venue is something very special!
One of my things on my list today was hunting down some red mittens for a reader of another blog I read regularly...she lives in Washington State and really wanted some of the Olympic red mittens. The clerk at the Richmond Bay actually laughed at me when I asked about them! I had to head downtown anyways to get Colin some replacement biking gloves (long story...one is somewhere in Canada Hockey Place -lost as we trying to exit before the crowds on Tuesday night) so I hopped on the Canada Line downtown. The Bay had almost a two hour wait just to get into the Olympic Superstore. Crazy. I asked the guy at the door and he said they only had infant sized mittens anyways. So I wandered around and took some more pictures of some of the sights downtown.
Adam had his last regular season basketball game afterschool...
and then we got home to watch the Canadian women win the gold medal in hockey! We just had a quiet evening at home, watching more Olympic events. We were all so inspired and moved by Joannie Rochette's performance and bronze medal this evening. What a story!
The Olympics have been something very special for us here! I am so glad we have been a part of this.
