We made it safe and sound to Hillsborough, although the rain took a while to lighten up. We had plans to go downtown tonight, but had to cancel them and focus all of our attention on the Olympics instead.
We started the evening with some guacamole and chips
Hard to believe my dress is now 5 years old – and mom’s is 35!
Later in the evening, Karen boiled some shrimp for another course – dunked in Old Bay!
And then we finally had dinner – a sub sandwich buffet!
I had hummus + cheeses plus tomatoes, pickle, peppers and mustard.
Plus fruit salad on the side.
We’ve been enjoying the ceremonies all evening. My family attend the 1996 games in Atlanta! Hard to believe this is the same excitement so many years later. I really enjoy gymnastics, diving and swimming and a handful of others, but I am overwhelmed by all of the non-stop options to tune in to! What is your favorite? Of course all of the athletes are so inspiring. I think my favorite part is just all the countries coming together – and I love seeing each country’s native dress in the ceremonies (Cambodia and Bermuda favorites so far!)
Mom made a chocolate chip pie for dessert! My grandmother Younger’s recipe. Delicious way to end the night!
My parents don’t have the air conditioning on upstairs – wish me luck!!
