Today marks the start of the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing! Rebecca and I are always big fans of the Olympics, and although we’re not holding a massive Olympics party like we sometimes do, we will certainly be watching the opening ceremonies, as well as many of the events.

In honor of the start of the Olympics, I thought I’d share a few photos from some of our previous Olympic adventures.

Here are some from our visit to the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs last summer.

You can view more photos from the Olympic Training Center.

In 2006, we had the pleasure of visiting the Olympic Complex in Montreal, site of the 1976 summer Olympics:

The Olympic Tower and Stadium in Montreal

There are more photos from Montreal in the gallery.

Finally, some photos from our last Olympics party, for the 2006 games in Torino.

Flags of the Nations – each of the invitations had the flag of a different country.

As the “host” country, we made an Italian flag pizza. 🙂

Hope you enjoy the Olympics!

    Enjoy the opening ceremonies.
    The fireworks are to be spectacular like nothing ever seen!
    We’ll be watching too.

    Bethany- The training center is BOTH a museum and a working training complex. We saw a few athletes the day we were there, but not all that many.
