Family Olympics 2015

3 years ago we had our first “annual” Family Olympics.  I say “annual” because although our intentions were to have it every year, life happened… babies happened… and another one wasn’t planned until this year!

Anyways, the 3 events we had this year were ladder golf, cornhole, and flimsee.


We picked teams randomly, to make it fair… and my dad had the cutest little foam fingers to hand out to each person!


For prizes we, of course, had medals for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.  We also gave the gold medal winners a 100 grand candy bar… clever, right? (We thought so!)


This year’s Olympics were extra special because we had one of my uncles and his whole family here from Florida.  They haven’t all been back to visit since 2007, so it was so awesome to have everyone all together again.

My cousin from California happened to be visiting the same weekend too, so we were only missing a couple from our big crew!


It was extra amazing to have my dad and all his siblings together again!  Of course we had plenty of pictures to take… and they all hated it!


Unfortunately, we didn’t get many actual game/action shots, but trust me when I say… a lot of fun was had.


And in case you were wondering, the kids had a blast too…


Overall, it was such a fun time.  Days like these make me oh so thankful for my big, crazy family. :)



  1. This is pretty epic! We're hoping to have some sort of family Olympics this summer--we'll have to see if we can squeeze it in, though!

  2. This sounds like so much fun and I wish I could get my family to do something similar! How fun!
