WOW! We returned from the Olympics last week and had the most AMAZING time. We managed to pack a lot of excitement into the few days we were there! The experience of simply being at the centre of all the Olympic activity was truly overwhelming. We were fortunate to meet many people from all over the world, and couldn’t help but get completely swept up in Canadian pride!
It’s hard to pick out highlights from our trip since the whole thing was so much fun, but I know we all thoroughly enjoyed attending a medal ceremony one night at BC place! Watching Maelle Ricker accept the gold medal for Snowboard Cross, and hearing the Canadian anthem being sung by everyone in the building was an emotional moment for us all! And as if that wasn’t enough excitement… following the medal ceremony we found ourselves on the floor just metres away from Alberta’s own Paul Brandt as he performed his hit songs for the crowd. What an experience!
This was a truly magical trip, and we are all so grateful to have been granted the opportunity to go! The only thing that could possibly top it is the STAMPEDE! Only 131 days away…
GO CANADA GO!
