Now, right off the bat, I feel the need to just admit my obsession with all things Michael. Yes, that's right, Phelps and Jordan. Love them both, and when I got around ANYTHING involving either of them, I turned into the paparazzi! Here are a miniscule sample of the pictures I took. :)
It was also super exciting to see the actual jerseys and uniforms of the athletes. There are tons more I have pictures of---Steffi Graf, Muhammad Ali, Katarina Witt.....but here are two of my favs.
Now these two pictures show one of the craziest parts of the museum. Here is Whitney standing under a pole vault bar set at Olympic record height. Now how crazy is that?? Then there's me standing under the high jump bar. Can you imagine that someone actually jumped that high?
However, we got scared. Not that we couldn't make it or that we'd drown. But when you get out there a ways the water starts getting pretty choppy. We had Sean's expensive camera with us. When we hit a wake the first thing we did was grab that camera and hold it up in the air as high as we could. We talked about it later and both said our biggest concern if we had tipped over wasn't our own safety, our money, our passports....but Sean's camera.
