This is one of the reasons why I love summer – when the boys randomly pick up their gear and get one round (or two) of fencing, in the backyard. IMG_4893.jpg


At Dai Bee’s first fencing competition. Boys have been taking fencing for some time now, and this was his first competition. He’s probably the only one doing this the first time since I was the only one taking pictures while the other parents were sitting there chilling. It was pretty low key, not much yelling or cheering. We spent a good chunk of time watching and waiting. He wasn’t the last one on the rank, so I take it that’s a pretty good?!IMG_7270

Mr. Piggy’s nephew is turning 2 today. After the fencing competition, we went to his house to celebrate with him. I made this minion piñata for him (or for his older cousins). He had no clue of what the game was, but managed to swing with his bat. The kids (my boys) had more fun at it than he did! IMG_7274 (1)DSC_0552 (1)

It all started out with a Groupon that introduced the boys fencing back in July. After the introductory class, they loved it and wanted to continue. So they are now going regularly (2 hours a week). Luckily, it’s nearby so they walked there. It’s definitely a great workout for both of them.
