Winter Olympics Blog Hop

Today is the opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics being held in Sochi Russia. To celebrate some of the bloggers at Bento Bloggers and Friends have teamed up to kick off the winter games with a blog hop. Once you've slalomed down these slopes. Click the button at the end of this post and keep hopping through all the rings until you glide all the way down the slopes back here.

Every year they have different mascots for the games. Some years they have been quite odd. This year they kept it simple with the polar bear, the hare and the leopard. I chose the hare the busiest of the winter animals because I can relate ha ha.
"The Hare is the busiest creature in the winter forest. Her friends are always amazed: just how does she find the time to do so much! For the little doe hare not only studies at the Forest Academy (where she gets excellent grades) and helps her Mum in the family restaurant, “The Forest Dam”, but also takes part in all manner of sporting events. The little doe hare trusts her friends so much that she doesn’t have any secrets. She simply loves sport with all her heart. And she also loves to sing and dance." ~ Sochi 2014 Winter Games Photo Stream Flickr
