The girls tried out the hamster ball on water. The Stacys opted out on that and decided to watch from their spot in the sand. The hamster ball was very difficult and only Olivia, who went last and learned from the others mistakes, was able to go more than about 3-4 steps.
It was a great time in Astana and we had a great time celebrating with all the Kazakhs. We bought a Kazakh flag and wore Asian games hats and scarves. The Stacys even got some commerative gold medals to take home (I think they were for coming from farthest away to experience the games!)
While the weather was cold we did enjoy some North American luxuries while in Astana - TGI Fridays (twice), American-style breakfast buffet, and a nice soft Ramada bed. The Stacys were happy to get a rest and prepare for the long trip back to Calgary!
Thanks for coming Stacys!!!
