Last night was the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. Mum and dad wouldn't buy us ticket to watch it at the MCG, but they did let us go in to the city to see what was happening.
It was sooooooo exciting, there were people everywhere.
(Look at how many people are waiting to watch the Opening Ceremony
- this was before it got busy!)
We saw the giant fish floating on the Yarra River, watched the footy blokes carry the Queens Baton along the floating platform towards the MCG and watched all of the fireworks during the ceremony. We did all this as we were having a picnic with Macs in Alexandra Gardens, in front of the biggest TV that I have ever seen.
I think that the Commonwealth Games will be heaps of fun. We are going to go and see the athletics on Monday. Maybe, when Nan and Pop come to visit next weekend, we will go and explore some of the live sites and see more of the games. I can't wait.

Isn't Melbourne beautiful? (I am glad we are back.)
