I have loved the Olympics this year. In the past, I have stuck to mostly watching gymnastics and figure skating. But this year I watched it all! I am so sad that it is all over. What will I watch now?
Anyway, tonight Des Moines, Iowa welcomed back Shawn Johnson, gymnastics superstar, and I couldn't help but admit I am starstruck over our hometown hero. Luckily, Elise is too so we went to the shindig.
Apparently we weren't the only ones who had fallen in love with her. They said about 7,000 people showed up to welcome her home at the Wells Fargo Arena.
I was glad that they got out a big t.v. for those of us who showed up just on time so we could see her hold up her medals from way up in the nose bleed seats.
Way to go Shawn Johnson!
