On Friday we went over to our good friends, the Dominguez's, for dinner and to try out Sandra's birthday present--Guitar Hero. We thought it was a lot of fun, and if we had a game system to play it on, I would be thinking about asking for it for Christmas, but I guess I'll have to ask Santa for something more practical. (Are we the only people in America without a Wii? It seems like it.)
The kids enjoyed playing it on the Beginner level where all you have to do is "strum" at the right time. Keith and I started out on the Easy level where there are three buttons you have to push in addition to strumming. By the end of the night I got brave and moved to the Medium level where you have to push four buttons. I wasn't that good, but had fun trying. Maybe all those years of playing the viola helped me out!
We had shredded beef tacos for dinner, which is my favorite thing to eat at their house. They are seriously so good, and lots better than when I make them, possibly in part because Sandra fries her own tortilla shells. Thanks so much for inviting us over!
