We have been so excited to live and experience the Olympics, we started blogging about the host city 6 months ago. Check our blogs out when we post our photos! We are having such a great time attending events, pavilions, entertainment venues and eating at great restaurants we haven't had much time to blog over the first week. We will start posting blogs hopefully next week when we have fewer events to attend! Reply to this
