Left the world of sales/marketing to raise my 4 energetic boys. I homeschool. I do natural birth. I cook, play piano, scuba dive. I love exploring new places, especially with my family.

Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony on the USS Midway

Take my all-time favorite sporting event – the Olympics – and combine it with one of our favorite sites to visit in San Diego, and you’ve got the makings of a don’t-miss-event!!  The USS Midway is hosting a FREE event to celebrate opening night of the Winter Olympics!  I’m so excited, I can hardly contain myself.  This sounds like so much fun.

On, Thursday, February 7th at 6:30 pm the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, held in Sochi, Russia, will be broadcast on big screens aboard the USS Midway.  There will be an assortment of family-fun activities to celebrate this exciting night.

– Food concessions and bar will include Russian-themed eats and drinks

– The Midway is creating snow for a “winter wonderland”

– BH Skating International is creating a New Wave Ice Skating rink on the flight deck!

– Meet Olympic and Paraolympic athletes

Bring a camera because there will be some great photo opportunities: meeting an Olympic athlete or a photo with a replica of the Olympic torch or one of the fun wintery activities.  You can bring a light lawn chair or blanket to sit on.  Be sure to enter the raffle prizes and possibly win ski lift tickets, museum passes, or Olympic merchandise.
