Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting....

Add Image
Paris had her first experience with Tae Kwon Do today at a Birthday party. She had a lot of fun but is not interested in ever doing it again :) The instructor was all business... Yes, Sir... No, Sir on everything from everyone. He told Paris several times to sit up straighter. Luckily she took it all with a grain of salt. I, on the other hand, was totally nervous.

This was called the rattlesnake game where you had to jump the noodle/rope to avoid getting bitten. I got some good action shots-
This was called duck and dodge... and if the kids did not duck or dodge at the right time they were konked with that padded stick.
On a sadder note, Alex took a bad fall on his scooter yesterday and the handle bar hit his eye. Luckily, I was able to get good advice from his Uncle Jeff, and we just iced it and took motrin. It eventually swelled closed but today looks a little better

Day Three of the Acoba/Lisi Reunion!

Paris was thrilled to have Emily and Morgan come to her school today.
After the school tour all the girls went downtown for lunch and Yogurt Park.
Next up was an afternoon viewing of High School Musical 3.
... Meanwhile Mason and Alex snoozed on the way
home from a day at the park with Paul.

We finished the day with dinner at Yan Can and
a walk to the City Hall pond and fountain.

The kids were all excited to spot turtles and Koi fish in the water.

It was very hard to say good bye tonight... and, in fact, Paris cried herself to sleep because she will miss Emily, Morgan and Max so much- we all will!!!

Paris and her friend from school, Lucas- we met at the park yesterday to enjoy the last day of beautiful weather before a big storm sets in...

Paris is putting the goody bags together for Mason's birthday party on Sunday. Unfortunately the only planned activity is a jumper outside and the weather forecast is cold, rain, thunder and lightening and possible hail - very nice- wish us luck :)
