I’ve had a blast keeping up with the results from the Olympic events since the Opening Ceremony on Friday. Between holding our own ‘Olympic events’ in Colorado with 2 year old Evan as the star athlete to watching events like swimming and gymnastics and seeing all of the USA success it has been a great week!
