Yesterday we went to a friend’s house to help him celebrate his 11th birthday. Oh, we had so much fun! I was particularly taken by the Michael Jackson Experience game on the wii. I did one song – Dirty Diana and now I want this video game.
This weekend has been a fairly quiet one for us. It did not start off very well for me – I either caught a stomach virus or had a case of food poisoning on Friday and as a result spent ALL DAY in bed. I felt really horrible and was very glad to see Saturday morning come and my vigor return. I even felt well enough to keep to our plans for the day – a birthday party and a Nashville RollerGirls game.
The birthday party was held at Centennial Park and was for one of Kaleya’s good friends who turned 7 this week. Unfortunately, I did not take many pictures at all of the party itself, just one of most of the group.
Since we were in the park, I did wish to take the kids to go see the Athena statue in the Parthenon. My last visit was years ago, well before she was gilded in gold, so I too wanted to see it. Jihad was able to tell me all the details about Athena for he’d been studying Greek Mythology in school – I was duly impressed. 🙂
After the party we came home and I spent about an hour or so tidying the house – then we had to get ready for the Nashville RollerGirls (NRG) season operner game. We are fans and I did a great post last year related to a game we went to for Jihad’s birthday. This weekend, they played Kansas City and KC was no joke! Unfortunately, NRG lost but it was still a great game.
Here’s a video clip of a jam by Rambo Sambo
and one of part of the halftime show by the JeerLeaders; this is great b/c you see one of the fans really getting into the performance (about 14 seconds in). I am hoping maybe someone else got an even better video of this!
Had a great day overall. Today we rested, doing much of nothing. I was honestly a little wiped out from having been out most of the day yesterday. This upcoming week is going to be extremely busy so a girl needs her rest.
