I liked the contrast of the "Student Section" and the rest of the arena.
The kids have wanted to go to a real basket ball game, usually meaning a Jazz game. We thought they might enjoy a BYU basket ball game, so last night we headed south to watch BYU play San Diego. We headed down early so we could stop and have dinner. We saw an Argentine bakery and stopped to see what they offered. The kids like empanadas, but they were out. So we ordered some, sandwiches de miga, ham and cheese sandwiches for Morgan and Ethan, and some fried steak sandwiches called milanesas, for Troy, Grant and I. They were quit tasty. Then of course Troy picked up a new bag of Mate and we bought some alfajores for desert, along with a bag of pasteries for Sunday breakfast. Mmmm., we got a good dose of dulce de leche this weekend. (Troy's going to have to correct all my misspelled Spanish words). Then off to the game. Go Cougars! They kept their lead of 5-10 points the entire game and pulled off a great win last night. The kids were great, even kind to each other. Morgan was by far the most energetic of the family, singing and dancing and screaming at the top of her lungs when ever the screen said to MAKE NOISE. Grant was the mellow one with a bit of a cold and Ethan half way through was more interested in ice cream and playing on the iphone. We had a good time, hopefully Marina, Ivan and Anya will enjoy going to a few basket ball games.
The morning after the game we finished off the Argentine pasteries for breakfast along with some fresh squeezed oj. A couple weeks ago Ethan realized that orange juice was the juice of oranges! Ta da. So I bought a 2$ juicer and 3 bags of oranges and the kids have made fresh orange juice a few times now. Oh, and it is tasty! No sugar needed! The rest of the pictures are a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Reading, napping and playing clay.
