Bonspeil, anyone?

The boys are actually sore from all the nonstop Olympics-motivated running, sliding and jumping. They were appropriately inspired and were thrilled to learn about all the crazy sports on offer: Snowboardcross, aerial skiing, hockey and of course...curling. We won't make it but you can see about visiting the open house at The Granite Curling Club -- the last of the season is 27 March and it's about as much fun as you can have on the ice.

The lack of snow and ice did not stop them for a second - field hockey sticks and toy truck wheels, yo-baby balance boards in the pool, crashing twists off our giant trapeze, even luge and skeleton 'races' on the toy box lids. FYI: The wrist guards, knee pads, triple socks (for extra sliding), helmets....not overkill.
