Celebration of Re-Independence Day and Gerd Kanter's GOLD MEDAL

Today it's the Day of Restoration of Independence. And yesterday, our great sportsman (a discus thrower), Gerd Kanter changed the history of sports - besides the golden medal won in Osaka 2007, he is now the owner of GOLDEN MEDAL from Olympic Games of 2008 as well. ESTONIA IS PARTYING TODAY!!!!
And so are we...


Our hero GERD KANTER (photo from Osaka 2007, http://www.iaaf.org/)

To celebrate both of those events, we (I, Erik, Kristi, Eve and Ragnar) drove to Pille's place. At first, we organized a discus competition. And indeed, we had an original discus (bought by Pille's father as a childhood gift for her) and each of us had 1 attempt to show his/her strength and talent... Here we are throwing it!

Avo, Eve, Pille and Ragnar showing their best moves....
Tanel, Kristi, I and Erik staking all which we had inside us...
AND THE WINNER IS:
AVO! He was the best, unfortunately we forgot to measure how far he threw... I'm sure not much less than Gerd Kanter himself :).
The cows were our spectators.
And after that, everyone was happy and we were able to start partying...
Wine was opened and we said "THUMBS UP, ESTONIA!" Cheers!

Kristi, I, Erik, Tanel, Avo, Pille, Marit, Eve and Ragnar

Finally, we had a generous dinner prepared by Pille, and 2 honey cakes (coincidentally prepared following the same receipt by Kristi and Pille).
