2010 Olympic Torch Relay

A week ago the Olympic Torch Relay came through our neighbourhood on it's way to the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC. A huge party was held in its honour and we had so much fun! There was a huge stage with live dancers and musicians and Coke was there taking pictures of families holding one of the official Olympic torches - they were also passing out special Coke bottles with the Olympic logos and light up Coke bottles. There were food stations selling hot chocolate and other typical Canadian treats. What a fun event!

Hey Julie, my husband actually was a torchbearer last Thursday in Cote St. Luc. Will be posting about it on my blog shortly. Wasn't it great?

Wow....fun, fun. And we got snow for it just in time.

Great seeing you on Sunday. Naomi is just so cute!

what a great experience to hold the torch. Fun!! It came through here last night but it was while I was teaching so Hannah and I missed it. Glad you had such a great time!!

That is so exciting!! I remember very well seeing the torch being run past us many moons ago. Your kids will always remember that.

Your kids are adorable. I wish Luci would go visit Santa the way Naomi did (even bribes didn't work for us).

Have fun on your cruise! Can't wait to hear how it is.
