Beijing 2008

These drummers were simply...AMAZING. 2008 drummer all synchronized. And just when we thought they couldn't be any more amazing....all the lights went out and all you could see were their red sticks. WOW!

We love the Summer Olympics! Swimming and Gymnastics are by far our favorites and this year...the US athletes are phenominal!

Micheal Phelps has us blown away with his Olympic and World Record setting. He is amazing.

Phelps winning the 200 meter freestyle.
US 4x100 meter freestyle relay team: Phelps, Weber-Gale, Jones, and Lezak win Gold

Natalie Coughlin is a favorite as well, winning the 100 meter Backstroke! She's so cute.

We are keeping our eyes on the US Gymnastics team this year and have high hopes for them to win the gold. I have also been watching May-Treaner/Walsh in Beach Volleyball. What a great team they have been over the years and I hope they win gold as well.

Did you see the 4X100 men's freestyle relay (swimming)? We were screaming at the TV! I can't believe the 4th guy caught up so quickly and beat the crap out of the cocky frenchmen! GO USA!!!

I love the olympics! We have been watching all the swimming events! I think the womens sand volleyball team will win the gold. Track next week is going to have to be pretty amazing, if it is going to be as exciting as the swimming has been so far.

I had so much to catch up on on your blog. It looks like you guys have had a lot of fun time swimming. I am in the middle of the 4th book so I did not read your post and will have to read it when I am done. It is taking up way too much of my time. The kids keep shuting it on me and getting mad. Love the olympics we have been staying up way to late watching but so worth it!!

I have been wanting to read your post on the last book in the twilight series....I finally finished the book and I loved your book review. I kinda liked the Jacob part in the middle. It showed how much he was sacrificing to protect Bella. It was kinda unexpected but then I got use to it. I wish there would have been a big fight at the end and Bella would have killed all the bad vampires and her and Edward would be the new leaders of the clan. But what ever. Thanks for the post!
