Olympic Fever!

Well, on Day 102 (Monday) the torch rolled into our town of Langley, BC Canada. We live an hour away from the City of Vancouver (Host to the Winter Olympics 2010) The last leg of the torch arrives in Vancouver tomorrow, and then the Opening Ceremonies. I also like to see that VAN2010 is a trending topic on Twitter! Yay!

Anyways, we watched the torch at the Langley Events Centre, and one of my daughters (our eldest) Claire sang as part of the official ceremony amongst other grade 3 classes in the area. Carly went with her class, and Cameron when to a different location and did the same thing. Cliff took the day off work to experience this (probably) once-in-a-lifetime experience together. I know our three little girls loved the excitement too! We all wore our official Hudson's Bay CANADA t-shirts. Cliff in black, me yellow. Kids all in the red.

I took photos and videos on my iphone, but I am not sure how to upload to blogger...so. Boring posts sans photos!

Here is a beautiful song sung by a local 15 year old! I Think she is pretty darn amazing!



Cheers! One more day to go! I am excited to see who lights the cauldron on the very last leg of the Olympics. I also wished I could see Jann Arden and Michael Buble run the leg of the race today I believe!

Here is one more song that I love too (and shows the sort of branding of the 2010 Olympics) And, I hope we get some snow on Cypress!! It is like Spring here this year!

Vancouver's wonderful well-known Sarah McLachlan. A beautiful song!
