The annual Romper Rumble Baby Olympics were on Saturday, Feb. 18. Romper Rumble is a morning full of running, jumping, climbing, throwing and bouncing, with racing of foot-powered cars and stick-horses, all designed to enhance the motor skills of toddlers. Each participating child was awarded a gold medal.
