5 Reasons I Can't Wait to Watch the Olympics
I am not a huge sports fan typically but that all changes when the Olympics come on. I get super excited about them and usually tune in a little bit each day to watch. This summer, the Olympics will be taking place in Rio, Brazil from August 5th-21st! I can't wait to watch.

Here are some of the reasons that I cannot wait to watch the 2016 summer Olympics:

1. The opening ceremony

My family and I love to get together to watch the opening ceremony together. I love to see what each country comes up with and how they added their culture to the ceremony. I also like to watch the excitement that the athletes have as they get ready to compete.

2. Uncommon sports

You can always catch a game of baseball or basketball on TV but how often can you watch archery, diving, shooting or rowing for example? I love to watch gymnastics, diving and in the winter, all of the unusual sports. 

3. Inspiring athletes

How can you not be inspired by the best athletes in the world? Seeing people run crazy fast in the Olympics is so amazing. Hearing that a swimmer trains so many hours in a day. It is something that most of us could not do and therefore, it inspires me. 

4. A fun family event

I love that the Olympics is something that brings my family together. As I said before, I typically am not one to watch sports but I love watching the Olympics. My mom and sister are like me with sports but we all enjoy getting together and watching the Olympics.

5. The opportunity to learn

Every time that I watch the Olympics, I learn so much. I learn about different countries culture. I learn statistics about different sports that I would never had heard anywhere else. Also, I love hearing the different stories about athletes that have overcome hard times and about their lives and training. 

Pampers recently teamed up with Olympic swimmer Dana Vollmer. She is a mom and this is her first Olympic Games since having her son Arlen last March. Dana was committed to get back to swimming after having her son so that her son could grow up recognizing how important hard work is and being inspired at a young age. We love Pampers diapers because they are comfortable for Adalyn and prevent any leaks.

Pampers is also having a #PampersDeams Instagram contest from June 20th to 30th. The winner will receive a $400 AMEX gift card. To enter, post a picture of your child sleeping and caption it with a big dream that they have or that you have for them using #PampersDreams and follow Pampers on IG.

Giveaway 

The giveaway will be for a $50 Babies R Us Gift Card and Pampers diapers to one winner!

  13. Yes, the Olympics sure is amazing and exciting to watch! You have to hand it to all these people for their hard work. We enjoy watching most all of the competition. My favorites are the ice-skating, the bobsled competition, the ski- jumping, the equestrian events, and the gymnastics! I think the Olympics is such a healthy sport and a good overall way to keep your body and your brain in good physical condition. Hats off to our Olympians!
