We are almost never NOT working! But, we love what we do and have so much fun doing it.
In 2012, we took a little trip abroad for a photo shoot.
However, this was not to be confused with a 'relaxing' vacation. We had to lug gear, get 2 kids on a plane, keep them entertained, get them to eat 'new' food, adjust to the time change and take usable photos for our quickly growing rock and novelty kids clothing store.
But, if we could get it all done, we would be rewarded! Greatly. With an adventure on the fast train to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity! Go big, right?
That's us. We were at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, England. We were lucky, and persistent, enough to get tickets to men's and women's beach volleyball as well as BMX.
So, you can imagine our excitement as the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics approach.
This past week, we've been watching the flame make it's way from Greece to Russia in ceremonial tradition. The flame will continue its relay journey through Russia where 90% of the population, 130 million residents, will be able to see it. In 119 days, on February 7, 2014, at the Opening Ceremony, the Olympic torch will be lit, it's flame symbolizing the start of the XXII Winter Olympic Games.
We'll be reading and watching every day and 'Team Kiditude', athletes in our own right, will be rooting for Team USA. The kids will be begging us to buy them the mascots - the fav this year being the polar bear with the hare, leopard, ray of light and snowflake coming in a close second - lol! They're kids and they want the whole set...
What's your favorite Winter Olympic event?
