My Gold Medalist :-)
We had our MOMS Club Olympics today and boy was it FUN!!! I seriously love the moms in my group and they're all so fun to be around. We had six events today and the kids had a blast.
We arrived at 9:30 to get set-up and Kathryn and Christy were already there. Soon after, Kristina arrived, then Kimberly, and then Cheryl and before we left, Meaghan came with her boys.
Before JP was in the seat, Gus had to test it out (LOL)
Gus loves JP and was eager to go and say hi!
Gus was so excited for the events. Our first event was the "hippity hop" and most of the little kids had no idea how to ride the bouncy. It was funny to see the moms trying to explain to their toddlers how to use it.

While Brooke was taking her turn, Gus decided to help JP with his paci. I swear, Gus is SO GOOD with babies. He just LOVES them! He had his left hand helping with the paci and his right hand was on JP's back. It was so incredibly adorable!
LOL he decided to just sit on it
The older kids had a great time with it!

The second event was the soccer kick. I sponsored this event and I think it was a hit!
Ryan did really well!
Grace enjoyed it
Abbey kicked it really far too!
I'm probably biased, but I think Gus kicked it the farthest!!
Ready to practice more!
After the soccer kick, the kids moved to the egg relay. They had to put an egg on a spoon and walk without dropping it.
Gus decided he'd rather just get a prize
The next event was the JUMBO Bowling and the kids all LOVED it!!!
Gus was ready to party with his lei
Ryan throwing the ball
Gus just ran the ball into the pins and got a strike!!
The next event was the ball toss game and the kids tried to knock down some cans.
Gus decided to just ram his whole hand into the cans to knock them down!
The last event was the Closing Ceremony. Christy led the kids (with torch in hand) around the field and then we celebrated with ribbons and snacks!
LOL-- Christy was excited that she beat all the kids!
Gus did such a GREAT job!! He ran the whole way and everyone cheered when the kids finished!!

Ahhhh... snack time!!
The kids played after they had their snacks and Gus decided to mosey over to the playground. He was climbing the structure and I wanted to get to him in case he fell, and as I was swiftly moving toward him, I twisted my ankle at the swings and totally fell. I was embarrassed, so I quickly stood up, but was in pain. I went to where Gus was and it took everything inside me not to pass out. I felt sick and I had to sit down before I blacked out.
My ankle hurts really bad now and while it's not swollen (I guess that's a good thing), it's REALLY stiff and sore. I'm not sure what I did to it, but I'm expecting to either be 100% better tomorrow, or it to be swollen when I wake up. We'll see.
After the Olympics, we went to J. Christopher's for lunch. Here are some cute pictures of Gus, Dillon, and Aubree as we walked from the parking lot to the restaurant.
Good friends hold hands!
I just love this one!!
My post wouldn't be complete without sharing the Monster Maker pictures from today...
He must have been thirsty...
Me too Gus, me too!
