We've been a little sick...

So we've been a little sick at our house lately; in fact, we have been down-right ill. We have Olympic Fever! I LOVE the Olympics. Especially the summer olympics. I love watching the swimming and I am a huge women's gymnastics fan. This year I've done it right- I started watching the women's team earlier in the season starting with nationals and then the trials ( sad, I know.) I think Shawn Johnson is an incredible and inspiring athlete- I really think she can take the gold. Anyway, last night we saluted the opening ceremonies in Beijing by ordering a ton of Chinese food. However, we were so disapointed to find that none of the chinese restaurants in Provo have pork and seeds. I have never been to a chinese restaurant that doesn't have them. Is that weird? I seriously thought they were totally chinese? Anyway, we hunkered in with our take out to watch the opening ceremony and we were completely blown away. John especially loved the performers with the suits that lit up. I really liked the cute little chinese girl who sang with the piano player and the cheesy chinese cheerleaders during the parade. Those chinese are pretty incredible- but it's gonna be TEAM USA!!!
