In the summer of 2008, we had our very own “Summer Olympics.” From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we kept score of every single game we played. Things like mini-golf, scrabble, bowling and lots more all went up on a big scoreboard in our dining room.
The three months of competition were intense. In the end, Ben won the tiebreaker (shuffleboard) to take the tournament. His prize is a plaque that hangs proudly over our couch. We’re now deep in the 2009 Summer Olympics, which will end right after our wedding (races down the aisle perhaps?)
Eventually we’ll have a wall full of these plaques from each summer – hopefully not all will have Ben’s name on them.
