First Chess Tournament Down!

Oh boy...nobody warned me that at chess tournaments the parents wait outside while the kids play chess in the gym...I wasn't allowed in the gym but to walk him over to his spot.  It was cold and rainy here and I didn't dress prepared to be sitting outside for 6 hours.  He won his first game..which he was so excited to win and then lost his second and third...on his third game loss...he came out with tears running down his face...poor guy..he really wanted to win.  I kept telling him it was his first tournament and at least he won one game...he can improve on it for the next tournament(don't think it helped much).  It was a great family time though..we all went mom and dad and then we went out for lunch (which we rarely do) and had a good time all around.
Here he is playing
His lip is still swollen from the dentist..looks much better today!

Then I volunteered for the egg hunt up here and that was so much fun..it was 4 hours of hiding eggs and helping the kids..I loved it!  We then hung out and played at Anthem Days on the bounce houses and toys for the kids.  It was gorgeous out on Sunday.
Johnny then drew me a picture of the cake he wants me to make for his birthday(not until May 1st mind you).

If you can't tell its an angry bird cake.....
I had a couple NSV's this weekend, we ran into some friends briefly at Anthem Days and the wife didn't recognize me...like I could see a blank look in her face when I said Hi and gave her a hug...I didn't bother explaining ...she probably thinks my hubby got a new wife.
I also had another friend who I hadn't see in awhile give me a big hug and said I looked great...I never get tired of hearing that!
Hope you all had a great weekend! A big Cheer to losing some weight this week!

I love it when people don't recognize me! I joked with my husband that at his office party he could just pretend he'd never introduced me to these people before. :)

Why aren't you allowed in at the tournaments? Angry chess parents??

It seems funny to think of children that young playing in a chess tournament. My dad taught me to play, but not until I was about 14, I think. I haven't played in years.

Glad you had such a nice weekend! Good luck with the coming week.

Wow, you had to sit outside and wait for him? That kinda sucks but then again we are talking about chess, lol.

Congrats on the NSV, that is such a great feeling.
