Yesterday was Paige's fourth/spin jam party. It was freaking amazing. I hooped and slip 'n slided a bunch. It was great fun. I also learned a new trick. Some tricks I have just been organically learning and this is one of them. Other than that, I spun fire for the first time. It was scary and I fumbled a few times. I was using Paige's teeny hoop. Only sometimes can I keep those up, so I mainly did halos and experimented with hand hooping. It was definitely a learning experience. I want to do it again with a hoop that I can feel comfortable with. I although I am glad I did sparkler hooping first cause it was similar in the way that you can't grab it cause of the spokes/fire in the way. I didn't get any pictures or video of it. I was too, "omg, this is happening now" to even think.
I remember looking up while halo-ing and thinking, "Omg, this is real fire man and what do I do now?" I'm sure in the back of my mind I was grateful that John wasn't there because he doesn't want me to fire hoop. Mainly cause one day I told him I would never fire hoop at our house. He has a mild fear of fire. I knew I'd fire hoop eventually and there is no way I said I'd never do it.
That was the most amazing party I've attended. I only have gone to family functions though.
But I will show you a video of my new trick:
