8/8/08


One of My Favorite pictures I took in Beijing!
Another Favorite!
The Bird's Nest!!!!!!!!!!! (Still under construction!)
Today I am SO excited! The Olympics are finally here! I can't wait it will be amazing to be like "I was there" or "I saw that!" I just can't wait! When we were in China our amazing guide took us to see the "Bird's Nest" which is where the opening ceremonies will be held! I am in more shock that we have been home for over 1 year!! It is amazing how time flies! I can't believe in 30 more minutes we get to see the opening ceremonies of the Olympics! I also am excited b/c it is in Princess' home country! Hope you all enjoy Beijing 2008 Olympics!

The Opening Ceremony was amazing!

Max and I watched the opening ceremony too! I told him that you had actually seen the "Bird's Nest" in person (no doubt - with a picture to prove it)! He couldn't believe it! I honestly thought the guy running in the air was going to fall! His "hidden" wires kept popping loose! Argh! Am I the only one who saw that part?
We felt proud of Anna's home country for putting on such a fabulous show! Love you! Jodi

We are doing the very same thing here at our house- "we were there" "we saw that!" So much fun. Loving the China coverage. And they are doing a spectacular job.
