Our weekend

Bob and I may be "old", but we are always busy.  This year we'll celebrate out 50th anniversary, we'll set a record; none of our parents reached that mark.  We live in a 55+ Senior community and there's actually a club for couples who've reached this benchmark.  The club is called the XYZ Club, for reasons, that I don't know.  Also, widows and widowers who reached 50 years, are welcome, too.  The club is organized by a very energetic couple and they do a great job.  Saturday, we attended the first event of the year.  It was a sit down, white tablecloth event, with passed hors d'oeuvres, salad, entrée and dessert.  There was red and white wine on each table.  After the meal, the seven "new" couples were introduced, plus there was live entertainment.  One couple who'd been married 73 years was there. 

On Sunday we went to our first Jiu-Jitsu tournament, the 2014 Pan Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championship.  It was the first time Oden has competed in a tournament!  He invited us months ago, so this was important.  We didn't know what to expect but I can tell you, it was wonderful.  As you can see, from the first photo, there was a lot going on.  The bouts are 4 minutes long and there was always 2, 3 or 4 bouts to watch.  The photo shows half of the floor. 

Now, here's some shots of Oden.  Warning WAY too many photos, but hey!

Walking to be weighed and measured.

Getting some advise from his dad.


Getting measured.

Getting instructions.


Oden didn't win his first tournament, but he did get a Silver medal.

These are his three brothers, and a friend.

His sister.

Waiting to get his medal.

Yay!  We are so proud of him.

Shots with his dad.  Oden is 14 and is going to be taller, we think.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
