Vancouver Olympics

It’s been pretty hard to escape Olympic fever in Vancouver the past while, especially if you live downtown.  I’m happy to see so many people out & about enjoying the festivities, but I’m not exactly a fan of line-ups and crowds (this prairie gal loves wide open spaces!)  As a result, I haven’t made it to any of the pavilions, aside from BC Hydro (kudos for the amazing Muskoka chairs in front of the tv!)  However, I’ve managed to watch a lot of events on tv, I’ve become a massive Muk Muk fan (hello – full mascot status for that marmot babee) and I’ve  been frightened by the big lineups at the Bay.  I think Vancouver has done an awesome job welcoming the world and everyday I live here, I remind myself that I live in one of the best places on Earth (I’m still waiting to move to Neptune – stupid atmospheric problems…)

Here are some photos I’ve taken around the city of the Olympics:

Very shiny, pretty bobsled

I’m debating whether or not to inflict the gold medal hockey game on Daisy or not.  She seemed rather intense while watching 🙂

      Good choice! He really should’ve been a full fledged mascot. I’m a tad bit obsessed with the little critter 🙂 He’s just so cute!
