2012 Gatchel Olympics: BIG update

Due to the recent passing of Kristi's grandfather Howard (or "Big" Pappa as the kids called him) we had to postpone our regularly scheduled games. Once things settled down, we had 6 games to catch up on. So one day we did 3, then 3 the next, and then we were finally caught up.

Due to my laziness and other things, I am finally posting the pictures not only of those six events, but the events from the three following days. Here were the 9 games and the gold medal winners. The medal designations for silver and bronze are not listed as I've pretty much forgotten what they were at this point.

Saturday -
Balloon Race: Mikayla (several balloons were unfortunate casualties)

Egg Obstacle Course: Mommy
Backward Obstacle Course: Mikayla

Sunday -
Pin the Nose on the Smiley Face: Daddy (Noah was caught red-handed cheating, check out the video)
Tic-Tac-Toe: Noah
Drinking Straw Race: Noah

Monday -
Ball Sorting Race: Noah

Tuesday -
Sock Matching Race: Noah

Wednesday -
Grand Prize Game: Noah (nearly impossible, and no $100 bill in the last bucket)

A few choice pics from the games. More in the album.

  1. Many thanks to Grant for getting these posts up! He is so much better than I am at deciding which pictures to post :) As you can probably tell we've been having a great time lately. When the amount of pictures slows down a bit I promise to take back over with the posting and try to keep things a little more up to date.
