One of the best parts of having a group of 9 children 10-and-under is watching them play together. My oldest two nieces E & K are masters at wrangling the younger bunch and coming up with elaborate ways to entertain everyone.
This weekend's activity was Family Olympics, but it reminded me more of the Feats of Strength from Festivus.
During the afternoon we all caught glimpses of kids practicing random activities but we didn't know what it was all about until 5pm when the adults were summoned to the basement to be the audience.
The events were...well....unconventional.
These guys were a bit more interested in their own Lego Olympics.
After the events were completed, certificates were prepared and presented.

The entire family even won a special award.
These are the days that family memories are made of.
