This year's theme at the beach was
All 30 of us were divided into 5 teams (because there are 5 uncles) and each team was the country where the uncle had served his LDS mission!
So the countries were: Thailand, Brazil, England, Scotland, & Japan (Which was my team!)
Each day there was a different challenge and for each challenge gold, silver, and bronze medals were awarded.
(My mom planned the whole thing! Like I've said before, she's Wonderwoman.)
So the schedule for the Collins Summer Games (ha!) looked something like this:
Sunday was the opening ceremonies (which included the floating lanterns!)
Monday was the golfing challenge.
Tuesday was various tasks involving frisbee.
Wednesday was the 4th of July, so the games were put on a temporary hiatus.
Thursday was track & field, which was hilarious.
And Friday was the closing ceremonies!

A very enthusiastic Brazil:
A quite unfriendly trying-not-to-smile England:
A culturally-correct Japan:
A Bravehearted Scotland (get it?):
And a super friendly, happy-go-lucky Thailand!
Let the games begin!
