On Monday, Tim ditched work early and we joined the throngs in downtown Vancouver celebrating the Olympic Spirit. We also attended a curling match thanks to Britco and all their free tickets. Tim works for an official Olympic sponsor, a entitlement which carries with it certain benefits, ranging from barter worthy lapel pins to free tickets. We arranged sitting for our dear child who currently despises her stroller which she's waaaaaaaay to cool for now that she can "walk walk," which is exactly what she screams every time I wrestle her into her very nice buggy. "WALK WALK!" She didn't get invited to the Olympics.
As much as I enjoyed the crowds, and athletics, and neat street art and performers my favorite part of the day was the company. It's rare that we get to 'go out' together. The biggest treat of the day was just -- time.
I think we're going to start trying to get more of that. Time. Together. Okay, deal.
