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. http://www.curlingseattle.org/
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.
