Let the games begin . . .  we started with a torch run (everyone was such a good sport about participating)

Ezra got to light the big torch (cheetos inside ice cream cones–how can you go wrong)140215_EzraBirthdayParty_120 Awarding the first medals for downhill skiing (on the Wii)140215_EzraBirthdayParty_125 They even broke out and started singing the National Anthem

And, the final event–the biathlon, we have been loving the Olympics and the announcer for all the cross country skiing events is so animated he makes everything exciting, so we thought it would be to try to do a biathlon (cross country skiing & rifle shooting).  We decided we could get our snow shoes out and have people make a snowball and try to knock down a solo cup.  And, if you miss, you have to do a penalty lap around the sand box.140215_EzraBirthdayParty_175 140215_EzraBirthdayParty_188

Evan decided to enter at the last and blew the field away!

Marian was the only one who was able to knock over the cup–and she was running in a long flowing skirt!  Totally cracked me up, no picture though:(

Thanks again to our family for participating in all our silliness.  Ezra had a great afternoon!
