You may have figured out by now that I love the Olympics. Well, we're a year away from Vancouver, and it was time to hit up a little celebration.
The clock was blurry, thanks to the rain.
So Darryl and I headed across the street to Parliament Hill.
Where I met Miga.
And got to hug Sumi.
And my favourite, Quatchi.
There were speeches, singers, a special rendition of the Olympic Anthem played by the Peace Tower bells.
Darryl and I waited...
For Elizabeth Manley and the Mounties to raise the Olympic flag.
It was windy and cold.
Then she trotted out the Calgary torch, as well as the newly unveiled Vancouver torch. Its pretty!
Sumi did a dance for Darryl and I while the mascots were being rounded up.
I wanted to take the mascots home. They're so damn cute!
Then Darryl held the shotgun, aided by Véronique Fortin, Olympic hopeful.
And I schooled him on how to properly torch it up. Huzzah!
We also got free pins and stickers and hot chocolate. And of course, an extra helping of frozen Canadian winter.
The back of our heads was on the national news. Sweet! lol
