Game of Thrones final episode

We didn’t start watching Game of Thrones until season 3 or maybe 4 but I’m glad we did. Tonight is the final episode and I’m sad to see it end.

Dragonglass shakes and Drogon-flame-broiled burgers from Shake Shack for dinner:

…Before the Dawn for dessert:

I watched almost all 67 episodes all over again before season 8 started and one day I will start all over again with the kids. They’re interested now because they aren’t allowed to watch it but maybe they won’t care when they are allowed.

Havana’s Birthday party

Havana had 5 friends over for her birthday slumber party. After school they went to Paint the Town and then home for dinner (spaghetti and meatballs), cake and ice cream and a movie (Titanic). Hudson and Eva got out of the house to their friends’ houses for the night.

I thought they went to bed at a reasonable time but Gay woke up at 2am and found them all still awake and had to tell them to go to sleep.

Eva at bat

In what I think was the best game for the Comets yet, Eva got a base hit and then stole 3 bases to score her first run of the season. As first baseman, she also got a runner out. The game actually finished 3 innings in 2 hours. I think that’s a sign the girls are getting better.

Since the game was at 6pm tonight, all of us went to the game and brought dinner from Bok a Bok. Havana’s friend, Mira, also happened to be at Garfield for her parent’s ultimate frisbee game so she watched Eva play too.

The Lion King finale

Today was the 6th and final performance of The Lion King. They had their cast party at Optimism – Mr Finney is a fan of the place and wanted to have it there. Gay organized it, brought in pizzas and cookies and Bubly water for the kids. 100+ people showed up and the cast sang a couple songs from the play. The show’s donations totaled more than $3,000 for the PTA too.
