Family Day Out

I wish I had been able to find my camera before we left the house this morning! First we went to a 6 year olds birthday party at a skating rink/fun center. The Hubs decided that him and his friends (a fellow Marine, a former Marine who was the b-day boys dad, and three other party goers) were going to take on a group of 6-8 year olds at laser tag. WooHoo, was that a challenge! Can you smell the sarcasm in that statement? But it was fun to watch the little kids scurry behind stuff, only to step right out in the open a get shot, and really cute watching Hubs think he was a cool guy.

Then to make the day even better he decided to go roller skating! Seriously where is the camera when you need it! He went around a few times wobbling like it was his first time walking. Then he tried to stop right in front of us and WHOP! Fell flat on his butt! The look of surprise on his face was priceless. I knew he was going to fall and was just glad he went backwards instead of forwards. I tried to get a picture with my phone but it wasn't bright enough so the picture sucks :(

After the fun activities of the afternoon we went to our first ever professional(ish) arena football game. That was soo much fun! We have been wanting to go to the semi-pro baseball games that they have here because Hub's unit always gets free tickets but haven't been able to make it. We had it all planned that we were going to get t-shirts for us and a jersey for Monkey. Well to our surprise they gave us a voucher at the door to get Monk a free jersey! We got there late so they only had a child's L or XL left so it will be awhile before he fits into it, but once it slightly fits he's going to look so cute! We did end up getting one t-shirt and figure we will either get a ball cap or another shirt the next game we go to that way we can take a picture of the three of us supporting our team (the Alabama Vipers, baby!) We will also be doing that for the Stars the class AA baseball team that's located here, and the Havoc which is part of the southern professional hockey league. We have two university basketball teams as well, but I try to stay away from the college teams from around here and focus on the ones from back home UT & ATM!

So that's what we did today haha. It was soo much fun, I can't wait until the Hub's gets back from his short road trip. We have a little arts and crafts project involving the monkey's hands, feet and plaster that we are doing for Mother's Day (and we are going to go ahead and do the other half of the project for Father's Day a little early) but for my actual Mother's Day gift Hub's is taking me to the Tennessee Aquarium. I'm super excited and hopefully I will have some great photos to show off!
