London calling…

The Olympic rings light up the stadium during the Opening Ceremony at the 2012 Summer Olympics

The opening ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics were tonight and they were great.  I totally love the Olympics and we make the opening and closing ceremonies into family events.  We hung out with Gramma and had a fun time.

London put on a beautiful show, I loved seeing the scenes change through the periods of Great Britain’s history. There was a terrifically silly part with an orchestra  playing the theme from Chariots of Fire.  As silly as it was, I enjoyed this part with Rowan Atkinson.

My favorite part was the lighting and movement of the cauldron. It’s always an amazing sight that is quite moving.
