What? Is that weird or something? Isn't that what every 13-year-old boy wants for his birthday?
That really is what he wanted!
He's rebuilding his basement space camp and he needed these supplies.
It's already not working.
Maybe it just needs new batteries.
Tomorrow is my 35th birthday and I threw myself a birthday party this evening. It was a kickball birthday bash!! We met up at the diamonds where the girls play softball.
Abe and I were the team captains and we chose teams playground style. It was brutal, but this was an adults only, show-no-mercy game. If the players couldn't handle the stress of picking teams, this game wasn't for them! We were out for blood and there was in fact some blood involved.
Here's Abe's team. They were the "A" team. "A" for Abe, "B" for Betsy. You'd think the A-team would be a better team than a B-team.
You'd be WRONG!
Ha ha! My team skunked Abe's team!!
Okay, technically we played two games and we each won one. So I suppose we tied, but our first win was so dramatic that I think we were just the better team:-) And now you can see why this had to be an adults only game. I didn't want the children there to hear all the trash talking we did (I did).
Abe got me a donut to put a candle in so the gang could sing happy birthday. I felt so loved!
As it turns out there is actually a league called the World Adult Kickball Association. We were pretty good tonight-- I think we might try to put a team together and compete around the world. We'll leave our families behind and just travel the world playing kickball.
Thank you to good friends for making my birthday celebration so much fun!
