This game was exciting yesterday because it started pouring rain about halfway through. We've had so much rain in the last six weeks - it's so fun, and so unusual. :)

We Stewarts were inducted into the club tonight by the Andrews (native Arizonans), through the participation of preparing and eating the exotic side dish I like to call Cactus. Because it was just that - a Prickly Pear, to be precise. Here's the before, (notice the pricklies have been removed):
And the After (they've been grilled on the BBQ):
Tempting, no? Well, if it was really that good, I think we'd be eating it a lot more, because there's no shortage of cactus around here. To me, it tasted kind of like green chilies; Adam says like a sweet green bean. Which begs the question: Does Cactus fall into the Vegetable category? I just want to know if I can count this as part of my "5 a Day"...hmmmm.
We certainly had our "meat category" fulfilled tonight with all this Carne asada. Muy Delicioso! (You'll have to excuse me, sometimes we True Arizonans break out into a little Spanglish - it just happens.)

"First, so we danced for quite a while and we did songs like "Twist and Shout" and the "YMCA" and then we did more dancing and I saw my friends Nicolette and Quincy, and then we did raffle tickets; there were tons of treats there and the music was blasting, and there was a disco ball! We danced some more and there was water there, and we got very sweaty from dancing so much! Daddy swung me between his legs and popped me back up again! I'm gonna remember it for a long time and my feet are sore from dancing!
