Olympic Weekend Out and About

My parents came to town for the weekend to take in some of the Olympic festivities. We had a great time just being tourists.

don't do itJ and I met my parents and my aunt and uncle and hung out on Granville Island on Saturday. We went to the Place de la Francophonie for lunch. This sign was outside the door as we went in.

cokeAnd here's our drinks...I was going to take pictures, but forgot because I was hungry, but we got food, there was a stroller parking area and pretty much everyone was in outside shoes, many that were not soft soled!

s j and mkWe met my friend Mary Kay from Virginia (who I met at Our Chalet) for dinner. She was here with her fiance Kory (who we also met) and her mom and sister for her third straight Olympics. We said goodbye to them and they went off to a hockey game - their second of the day!

no women's ski jumpingWe weren't sure if these signs were suggesting women's ski jumping has no place in the Olympics or protesting that they aren't in the Olympics this time...this was other indicators around.

What a weekend...we need a weekend to recover I think! And there is still almost a week of Olympics left and two weeks of Paralympics!
