Olympics

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year or so you probably know that the 2008 Beijing Olympics started on Friday. I have never been a huge fan of the traditional Olympic sports but we were really looking forward to them this year having recently traveled to Beijing. We were especially looking forward to the opening ceremonies and they didn't disappoint. We went out for Chinese food Friday night and then came home to watch the coverage of the opening ceremonies. The scale of the show was just awe-inspiring. But with a reported $300 million dollar budget that is what you get. It was really fun to see some of the places that we saw just a few months ago, before we had Grace. Really seems like a lifetime ago. We have even caught a couple of the sporting events over the past few days. The cool thing is now we get to root for two countries.

We had a pretty busy weekend otherwise. Parties and catching up with old friends....pics below.

Hey...there's my former co-worker B again! It's so funny - after I saw him on your blog the last time I sent him a quick email to catch up (he's one of my LinkedIn connections!). It's a small world after all...

Have a Great day
