Baby Lights Olympic Bonfire

Posted on: January 24, 2010

Yesterday Niko, Borys, Frasier and I headed off to the first annual Simps-Olympics, organized by Graeme, Heather and Lena at their cottage. Basically it involved a winter flurry of outdoor activities (brainteasers, ice fishing, crazy carpeting, bowling for Conservatives, etc.) – sort of like a summer regatta but winter style. Anyway, perhaps because the Olympics will be in Vancouver next month the theme of the winter activity day was the Olympics, and seeing as I was an official torchbearer this past December, yours truly was asked to light the bonfire to start off the festivities.

Now seeing as I had little Niko in tow, not everything could run exactly according to a timed schedule. For example, when the time came for us to get the games started and for me to run in with the tiki torch (a.k.a. Olympic Torch a la cottage style) and light the bonfire, Niko also decided it would be a perfect time to proclaim his hunger. A good half hour (full stomach, clean diaper and dressed for the weather) later we were good to go. But different than in December when I ran with the official torch, this time I had baby Niko Baby Bjorned onto my chest and he was a part of the whole ceremony!

Note: As you can see (and if you can’t, just click on the picture to enlarge it) in the gallery of pictures below, the bonfire needed a little coaxing for the lighting, so Niko and I decided to go chill with Lena and Heather.
