Another weekend
Whoo, I'm glad this weekend is almost over. I think I am going to bed early tonight and hopefully I will be able to have a good-night sleep.

We had a really busy and packed Saturday. It started with us going to our city's fire station for their annual Pancake Breakfast. The pancake actually was very yummy. I would be glad to pay almost any amount for the breakfast for a good cause, but it only costed us $4 a person. Besides JE and a friend of his had fun climbing up and down various fire trucks. At one point, he did a junior fireman obstacle course, which he got to wear a little man fireman uniform and helmet; ran a short distance carrying a hose; climbed onto a platform and hammered down some objects; carried some other objects for a short distance, with a fireman's help; ran to another hose and got to hose down a building. He had a blast. Unfortunately we rushed out of the house as we were running late, and we forgot to bring the camera. Oh well, there is always next year.

We went to our friend's for a short while, chatted while the kids jumped on the trempoline. After that we headed home and all had a short nap to re-boost for our evening activity. We went to Memorial Park for their Cinemas in the Park with a few friends. We had a picinic there before the movie. It was the first time JE watching the Oz. We had fun even though it was way after our usual bedtime.

If the movies are free, why do you need tickets?

But, I notice that on May 13th, they're playing Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Perhaps I will think about going. I mean, it's free AND it's an 80s movie I love so why not!

I think we needed tickets so the organizing group could limit the number of people watching the movie. Then again, perhaps it was just so they could keep track of the number of participants.

Make sure you bring a warm jacket and blanket. It actually gets rather chilly (for SoCal) sitting outside at 10pm.

I've never been to a pancake breakfast, I'm jealous! ;)
