Today we celebrated the 4th at my parents’ house. Lots of family and friends enjoyed a cookout and playing games. We had badminton set up, but everyone was too tired after playing capture the flag, so we got the board games out of the closet instead.
Jantina, Emilie and I went uptown to see the movie “Transformers.” As we were waiting for the theater to be cleaned, Ken and Mr. Bottrell from our karate class showed up. A few minutes after we found our seats, three more from our class showed up (the Schreiber guys). Apparently karate-ka really like their sci-fi robot flicks on Independence Day! The movie was great. I’m not sure why the characters needed to look so different from the familiar toys/cartoon I grew up with, but it was still awesome.
After the show, Jantina and I came home and played some co-op Earth Defense Force 2017. We cleared a few more levels before heading to bed, but I’m not sure we are going to finish it before returning it to Blockbuster.
