armchair travellers

May as well admit it. We were addicted. All 5 of us. Out of all the reality shows, aside from Survivor, The Amazing Race is by far our favorite. We love to "travel" around the world and somehow experience and learn a bit from several places they go to. And this last series was by far one of the best. If anything the twins really got into it this time around. If the show was too late, we'd tape it and then watch later together as a family. They've been studying continents and now countries within continents at pre-school so they loved to see what country the contestants would go to. They'd pull out the globe and check it out. Of course, when they went to Greece, having themselves been there last year, proved to be really neat for them. From the get-go they were routing for the hippies. Their quirkiness was endearing. Can't wait to see their reaction when we view last night's episode tonight ;)

and the flower of the day:

can you see the fly?

I can see it!!!

When the hippies won, it was the first time the people whom I thought should win, won. My Sister and I were cheering for them and were just thrilled when they won.

We both love that show, for the same reasons you do, to travel the world without leaving my house. One day though, I will get to Italy, Greece, France... one day :)

Wow, I can't believe your twins are into the Amazing Race! What sophisticated little viewers they are - my guys are still watching Scooby Doo and the Wiggles!

I was so happy with the outcome of this Race - almost as satisfying as watching Joyce and Uchenna win last year!

Count me in as a hippie fan too! I was actually contemplating letting Tristan watch AR (the title alone would hook him). Hmmmmm, maybe next season. I get such a kick out of watching his reactions to the commercials during AI. Between covering his eyes and ears that is...

WOW Nathan is a big discovery Fan like Mean Machines and Mythbusters but I never thought of letting him watch the Amazing Race.

The Hippies WON! RIght on. I thought they were too funny. Plus I loved how they worked hard at staying calm with each other. I didn't get to see the finale, Now I wish I had.
