Canada - Men's Hockey wins gold and the crowd goes wild in downtown Vancouver. This is what it looked like around Robson & Burrard today. It was so much fun. Everyone was so happy that we won the gold in overtime. Sidney Crosby is the best and we couldn't have done it without him. We are so proud to be Canadian and the Olympics were so much fun!

Can you believe the line up to the Ontario Pavillion? They have a 4D movie there and the line up was gynormous (is that a word). It didn't look that bad before we started but it really snakes around a whole bunch behind those ropes. There was a very important hockey game going on while we were lining up. There were so many people inside the Ontario Pavillion...just watching the game. It was a really nice day out so there were so many people just sitting on the grass outside watching it on a huge screen.
Here are some photos of some of the Olympic Venues. BC Place is white dome structure where the Opening Ceremonies took place. It's amazing how they transformed it inside for the opening and closing ceremonies. The building with the Q on it is Quebec House. Ontario House is somewhere behind it. We are standing near Sochi House (better known as Science World) looking across False Creek.
Finland vs Sweden. We went to see the Women's Hockey Bronze Medal Game. It was so much fun. Look...they drove us over in a golf cart so we didn't have to walk so far. It was held at Canada Hockey House (better known as GM Place for us Vancouverites). It was so much fun. They went into overtime and the final score was 3 to 2 for Finland. This is the Finland group photo at the end of the game from the big screen monitor. Congratulations Finland...great game!!!

We visited Sochi House today. They have transferred Science World into Sochi House. Did you know that the next Winter Olympics in 2014 will be held in Sochi, Russia? The line up was so huge outside. We were actually able to sneak in this lane where they let people with children in more quickly. No one really knows about it but they seem to let people with a stroller or young children in more quickly. We only knew about the quicker line up b/c I went to Sochi House the other day with my grandparents...and they let us in there. Mom & Dad said it probably would have taken us 2 hours in line up to get in. After we left, Sochi House I went out to the playground to play for a while. It was fun.

Here we are at the BC Pavillion at the top floor of the Art Gallery. It's free to get into the Art Gallery during the Olympics and they had some of Leonardo DaVinci's art on display. The line up was all the way out to Georgia Street but it went pretty fast. I had a great time moving all the leaves around on the tree.

Wow, the Olympics are nearly here and there are things to do already. We went to the Coke area at the Bay and they had this pin board. You just have to bring/buy a pin then you can pin it on the board...you are supposed to pin it where you are from. My Dad and I took a photo with one of the torches and there were pin traders there too. We went to see the lanterns and art work on Granville Street. Then we went to the art gallery and Robson Square. You can skate for free there and there tons of people lining up there to pick up Olympic tickets. I had a great time exploring my hometown. Go Canada go!!!
