Fun Fact: The Olympic symbol consists of five interlaced rings of equal dimensions, used alone, in one or in five different colors, which are, from left to right, blue, yellow, black, green and red. The Olympic symbol (the Olympic rings) expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic Games.
Contest: First au pair in my cluster to tell me what is their favorite event in the Summer Olympic games will win a prize. Send your answer via Facebook or email.
Dave & Busters is a really fun place to take the kids or go with your friends after work. It can be a little expensive, so Wednesday is my favorite day to go. That’s when they have all their games for 1/2 price. We have two locations near our cluster: Bethesda & Arundel Mills. Find more information on the Dave & Busters website.
