Chambers Family Olympics

In honor of the Olympic spirit, on Wednesday we had our own family Olympics. Jazzi started it off with tooting of the horn!! Let the games begin!!
Kyla and I made torches for the athletics to carry. They say USA on them and each has a flame burning. They also had Red/White/Blue shakers with bells on them. Bailey is first in line..
Here comes Zac
Kaleb with his torch high in the air.....
And Kyla bringing it home!!
First, we had the standing broad jump and the running broad jump but I wasn't ready and missed those pictures. Zac is quite the jumper and he did really good job jumping!! After that, we had the high jump. They started off low and kept getting higher. We  have some good jumpers here.

Next, was the Hoop toss: They had to toss a stick of chalk in a hoop. 1 point for outside the hoop and 2 points - 5 points for getting it in a hoop. The farther hoops were worth more points.

We had the scooter challenge in between and around the cones. No accidents either!!

Next up was the Bowling Pin throw to see how far they could throw. If you look at the steps, you can see that Bailey was really interested in this, she was keeping a good eye out.

We also had hit the tree with the bowling pin. It looks easy but they found out that was not so easy. The pins on the ground were Kaleb's and Kyla's so Zac had it all figured out. He took his pin, ran up to the tree and hit the tree!! Good thinking Zac~~that's the way to do it!!
We didn't want to leave Bailey out, so she did the hula hoop sitting in a hula hoop, how talented is that???
Bailey maneuvered  the walker course and did just great!! Only thing is that we didn't think about the skinning of the toes, ooppss!! lol

We had a metals ceremony where they all got presented with the GOLD metals. They each received a trophy for a job well done!!

In September, Tyler and Molly will be here, so we can have a Fall shindig with some serious apple bobbin etc. Cant wait!!


  1. Looks like fun. I love Zac just hitting the tree with his bowling pin.

  2. The kids look like they were having a blast! What a great idea for some family fun!
