This is a picture of skiers practicing ski jumps. For training they actually land in a large pool.
My Dad, Brother, Josh, and I got the crazy idea to ride the actual bobsled they used in the Olympics. They have put concrete on the shoot and let ignorant tourists sign their life away for a ride.
I am not kidding when I say it was the fastest and craziest thing I have ever done. The speed gets up to 70+ mph and 4 Gs and that happens FAST. We all blacked out within seconds of the ride and I was so sore the next day from being tossed around like a ragdoll.
Here is a YouTube video of the "ride":
But two thumbs up to surviving:
With all of that said I am and my family is giddy that the Olympic games are beginning in 5 days. I hope Charlie likes them as much as we do!
On a side note, Old Navy has darling Olympic t-shirts. You better bet the whole White Family (Charlotte included) and Vaughn Family has their shirts already.
