Over the weekend, I was to take part in an expo for the city.  It is an annual thing for all the classes the community has to offer.  From the teeniest ballerinas to all things Senior.  Including "Zumba Gold."  Zumba Gold is for the Senior variety.  Do not be fooled by the name.  You still sweat and burn between 500 and 700 calories.  The differences are:  no jumping and it is 15 minutes shorter than a regular Zumba class.  Also the instructor is to stop between each song and remind the ladies to drink and she always makes sure everyone is okay.  Well, it rained Saturday...kind of.  Mostly in the morning.  Which meant the activities were moved inside.  However, there just wasn't room for the amount of people that were there.  And the Zumba demo was canceled.  Oh well.

The weekend wasn't a total rain out.  We had our annual "combined" March birthdays celebrations.  We have four birthdays in March....five if you count my cousin.  But he got his own birthday party.   We had yummy chicken chimichangas made by my sister.  Homemade refried beans, Spanish rice, and guacamole made by mom.  Oh and did I mention the killer chocolate cake my sister makes???  It was all good!

After dinner and all the birthday stuff we settled in the family room and the kids were doing mock presentations using the cake board that didn't actually get used for the cake.  By the way, total cheap entertainment.  We were giving them odd things to demo.  One of them gave a presentation on Ear Wax Removal and another did one on navel lint.  Then Grandma (aka my mother) tried to make it funny by assigning the presentation:  Who Farted?  Well this blossomed into a silly twist on the game of "Murder."  We sent one kid out of the room, and quietly agreed on a...."farter."  We then would make a sound...(insert fart noise here) and the "detective" would arrive.  The kids were extremely silly with their questioning but they could always figure out whodunit.  It made for great entertainment and lots of giggling and laughing.  Leave it to us to create a game centered around farting.

What silly games do you play?

That would be a dangerous game to play at our house, because inevitably, someone would do a real one and the audience would asphyxiate. ;)

That sounds like so much fun! Really, I am just grinning about it all. What a fun and creative family.
Sorry the Zumba was canceled. I really would like to go to a zumba class at some point in time. Sigh.

Lol! Now that does sound like a fun party game. Sounds like we should have combined Eric's bday with the bunch too :)
