We had a busy weekend that actually started on Thursday. A good friend of ours got married Friday so Thursday we were busy helping with the rehearsal and decorating for the reception. The wedding was beautiful, our family got to do the opening prayer and Maddy contributed her 'Amen' at the end.
Here are a couple of wedding pictures:
We also DVR'd the opening ceremonies in Beijing so we spent a lot of time watching that late Friday & on Saturday. I have to say that it was spectacular & I am so excited for China to have been chosen as the host country. All politics & human rights violations aside- it's really a honor to see Maddy's birth country able to be given such a privilege & to see the pride of the Chinese people.
I was so touched by Team China's entry and the little boy (Lin Hao) that walked with Yao Ming. He was a survivor from the May earthquake & a hero at that saving the lives of 2 classmates.
Here is a photo I found of that:
Lastly (GEEK ALERT)- we went to the Star Wars exhibit at the Science Museum. It was ok, but I was a bit underwhelmed.
