My family and I been watching the Winter Olympics over the past two years and we have loved every minute of it. This is the first Winter Olympics that my girls remember and this time around my oldest is completely into snowboarding and ice skating herself, so seeing professionals do what they do at this level has been a complete eye-opener to her, We have been taping much of this and then watching it during the day after school except for on the weekend when we can watch as a family.
This Saturday we invited a few people over and had a party thanks to Mike’s Hard Lemonade. We picked up a Hard Party Kit to have with our friends as well as a couple of other Mike’s drinks as well as Chips, Guacamole and more. to have some fun and get into the Olympics action. We were looking forward to the skiing and the Hockey. We had a blast rooting on the USA and though we did not always come in with the gold, what I loved was sharing the USA pride with my girls and getting them in the spirit as well.
I am always amazed at watching the stories of the athletes and everything that they have gone through to make it to the pinnacle of their sport. My girls and I had a few very good conversations about perseverance and how these people were able to do what they could do. They were amazed that they made it to where they were and J-Mom and I kept reinforcing that with hard work, practice and discipline hey could achieve greatness too.
The Olympics are a time when the world can come together to celebrate and live in peace (if only we could always do this). I was so glad that we were able to share this with our friends and our daughters. Now to look forward to the next Summer Olympics!
Thanks to Mike’s for letting us let loose a little and have a great get-together.
As we conclude the Olympics, I say congratulations to all of the athletes both from the USA and beyond!
