Going for the Gold

Are you loving watching the Olympics like we are? We are screaming, clapping, shouting, napping (okay, that was just during the women's marathon for a bit) and maybe wiping a tear now and again. These Olympians are courageous, encouraging, motivating people who accomplish amazing feats. Some even use their feet(s). Like this gal:

Who knew?
There have been so many memorable moments. Like watching the "Blade Runner." A.Maz.Ing.

Also, this was  so delightful:

Don't all these athletic achievements  motivate you to do better at...whatever?

I think I probably could have medaled in "Complaining about the Heat" these last couple days. If not gold, I surely would have won silver or bronze. It would have been a tight race with my neighbor who abhors the heat as much as I do. Yes, I know we only had two days of what most of you would call summer. That's why it is so spectacular that we can raise our levels of wine whine to world class in a matter of mere hours. We give it an Olympian effort. And I have a natural talent for it.

Rod is also galvanized into gold medal-worthy adventures, trying things he wouldn't have before in our Olympic-size Costco-size  pool. Here are a few shots as he demonstrates his incredible skill.

Back off, girls. He's all mine.
That's right. he is in the pool trying to keep both a baby AND a dog above water.
 Spectacular! Unbelievable! Stupendous! Worthy of the Gold!
(have you noticed how many pictures I post of Rod in which he is partially dressed? What is up with that?)

What have you and your family enjoyed most about the Olympics?
