Gentle Readers and Dear Friends - we are to be getting some rain today from a swirling storm coming in from Alaska. We aren't supposed to be getting rain this time of year!! What's up with that?? I do love the rain - and I enjoy listening to it falling and splashing. Our rainy season here is the winter - the most weather we should be getting now is fog - we got lots of fog yesterday afternoon - it rolled in over the city like a grey misty blanket. Oh, well, one day of rain and it will blow out and we'll be back to our usual cold fog, yea!!
It was Pride Weekend here in the city - and although many thousands of people flock here to watch the parade and then walk around the Civic Center Festivities - that was never on our agenda. I haven't been to the Parade in years and have avoided the crowds in the CC area for just as long. You can click HERE to read all about the events.
Instead we had a birthday party to go to in the east Bay -Rico's cousins son turned 8 and so we went to his festivities instead. The theme of the party was SpongeBob Square Pants - and who doesn't love SpongeBob??
There was cake - and it was filled with fresh strawberries.....
There was a pinata filled with candy........
Here is poor SpongeBob pinata after the whacking.....
There was a bouncy house.....
filled with a Rico...... It was lots of fun and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. We had a great Barbecue lunch and saw some other family members we hardly ever see. So, kudos to Kurt and Nicole for the wonderful time they showed everyone and Happy Birthday Jaden!!!!
I often forget that not everyone knows what I am talking about all the time. Like last Friday when mentioned that I love me some purple Gatorade. I didn't think that not everyone would know what it is. So, here is a snap of the stuff...
I will also like the blue, but only the purple and blue, and not the yellow, green, orange or the red. Gatorade was invented at the university of Florida as a sports drink - the mascot of the school is the Gators - hence the name Gatorade.
That's it for today sports fans - Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments!!! Do come again.
