In planning a huge event like this, you try to think of the little things. I was obsessed with making a life sized Olympic rings that people could take goofy pictures in front of. Derrick was obsessed with having fireworks. We tried to think not just of the adults but the kids too.
The bulk of the Norway Drive Winter Olympics happened on Saturday starting at 1 pm. We began the day with a snow sculpture contest (with food coloring in spray bottles for additional interest).
The winner was the sea monster:
But honestly, I think the taco was pretty awesome:
After snow sculptures, we did the luge, which was difficult due to warming conditions but we made the best of it:
Moving the party inside, we at some food and held a Pass The Pigs tournament. A small badminton tournament was held as well:
Alice then cooked us an amazing Armenian dinner and we all ate until we couldn’t eat anymore. Then the final competition began: the dessert tournament.
The winner decided by popular vote was Hope. And it was even her birthday so the victory was even sweeter.
The ceremonies closed with some fireworks by pyrotechnic expert Derrick.
Thanks to everyone that came and even before it was over saying they couldn’t wait for next year. This will definitely be a yearly event.
