"Iknowit'shermommy, lookatherpinkhairandshe'swearingaUSAvest, IT'S HER!!!" Sure enough, Shannon's Mom leans over and says to D, "if you've got a camera, she'll let you take a picture of her medal." ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? Just look at the smiles!
That medal is so heavy. And so beautiful. Shannon was incredible...a line soon formed and she put that medal around about 30 necks and posed happily for everyone's cameras during the 15 minute boat ride. It was like she was just hoping someone would ask, she was so excited to share her experience with everyone. What a champion!!
Once over town, we first made our way to the cauldron. It is really disappointing that you can't get closer to it unless you have credentials.
We visited Korea House, the Coca-Cola Open Happiness pavilion (my kids made me do it), the Acer pavilion, ate some junk food and then made our way to the Canada vs Norway men's hockey game. What a sea of red!!!! It was such a festive, exciting atmosphere. Look, here are Patrice Bergeron's dad and brother in front of us in the waiting corral:
This is the last of the hockey fans making their way out of the security corral and into Canada Hockey Place:
And this is a small idea of what happens when Canada scores!
As you can see, we were way up top in the 3rd last row, but it didn't matter. There are no bad seats in there and we had a blast.
Short Track Speed Skating today. Phew this Olympics is exhausting and I'm just watching!!
How about that Maelle Ricker!!!!! Canada's Golden Snowboarder!!!
