It has been on our Bucket List for a long time and we can now cross it off- we got to experience the Olympics! With this being our 10th year of marriage, we decided a while back that it would be great to celebrate by treating ourselves to a trip to Vancouver for the 2010 Olympics. We started making preparations over a year and a half ago. My sister was able to enter a ticket lottery for Canadians in which we got 2 events- curling and hockey. Last month, we decided to splurge and buy some more tickets from StubHub. I don't say "splurge" lightly- it was costly, but we really wanted to see short track speed skating. We flew out from Fresno on Feb. 14 (we spent Valentine's Day and Vietnamese New Year traveling!) and were incredibly blessed to be able to stay with our friends, Thao and Peter's parents the entire week. They were so generous and welcoming. My sister spent the week with us, and my brother and sis-in-law, and Thao, Peter, and their daughter Sam were able to spend some time with us for a few days as well. There is so much that I could blog about, but due to limited time and space, here's as short of a summary as I can write!
Jason LOVES using public transportation and we got to use plenty of it.
