Olympic Party

Day In.

We Days had a very busy weekend. We kicked off Friday night with an Olympic Opening Ceremonies Party. We invited friends over to watch the Brits do their thing.

Stuart (the party planner) thought it would be fun to assign everyone a country to bring a drink from...i.e. the girls bring wine and the boys bring beer. At a recent trip to Kroger, Stuart and I browsed the aisles to see what countries were available. We came across Australia, Japan, Spain, Germany, New Zealand, etc. Fun idea!

We had to have the Olympic rings!

I set up a drink table. Everyone labeled their bottle, and we sampled what we wanted.

It was potluck so everyone brought a side to go with the Hosts's very healthy (and very American) main dish of fried chicken. We had some awesome dishes!

And of course, there were games.

Stuart's favorite new game...all you need is a PVC pipe, a beer can and a frisbee. 

Heath is competitive, even risking grass stains.

Stuart must have won.

Soaking in the Ceremonies. 

We even gave out gold medals to the favorite wine and favorite beer. 

Jason's acceptance speech for his gold medal.

Overall, it was a blast. We are hooked each night watching the events. Thanks Bob Costas!

Day Out.
