Happy Leap Day (Night)

I had to get a quick blog post in today because it will be another four years before I'll get my next chance for a February 29th post.   The kids are already asleep and I'm about to be...zzzzzzzzzzz

Stars on Ice and the Olympic Spirit

Ten years ago the Winter Olympic games were held in Salt Lake City.  It was such a wonderful experience where the world came to Utah.  I loved being a spectator to several events and a volunteer for the Paralympics at the Soldier Hollow venue.  It seems like just a short time ago yet none of my children were even born.

On Saturday Lindsey and I went to see Stars on Ice.  It was a figure skating show featuring several Olympiads including some of the medalists from the 2002 games.  The show was a tribute to the 2002 Olympics featuring several video clips on the jumbotron.  The evening was hosted by Scott Hamilton and there were speeches by Kristi Yamaguchi, Derek Parra and Mitt Romney.  The whole evening was fun and brought back such amazing memories.

Funny side note about the ticket, the Utah Jazz were not playing that night but apparently they used their ticket template to print out our tickets.

Nordic Skiing and the Dew Tour

I've signed up to take Nordic ski lessons with Cindy and Brian for 4 Saturdays in February.  Yesterday was our second lesson and we happen to be at the same ski resort that the extreme winter sports Dew tour was in Utah this past weekend, Snowbasin.  After our 2 hour lesson and lunch we headed up the mountain and watched some of the men's snowboard half pipe competition.  They were amazing!  I don't think we looked half bad either.

What We Girls Go Through

I spent three and a half hours with a three year old at the hair salon on Wednesday.  It felt more like three and a half days.  Carley cried, I felt like crying, but in the end Carley and I both thought it was worth it.
