After the 2008 Summer games I decided to give my youngest son an Olympic inspired Halloween costume. And who was the star of the show in 2008?
I tried to explain to Joey (who was only 4 at the time) who he was supposed to be but he just didn't really get it. I think he would rather have been Darth Vader (which he was the next year!). Me--I loved his Phelps-in-training (had to have the arm floaties) costume!
We were in Florida for my grandpa's 100th birthday party. The town has trick-or-treating at all the stores downtown so we headed down there.
As we walked around the crowded area people would say things like "hey--look--it's Michael Phelps"..."way to go Michael" and others would clap for him. He got alot of attention and started to think his costume must be pretty cool!
Congrats to Michael Phelps and all our USA Olympians--you make us proud!!!
