pink pants & cargo shorts

Where is the numero uno place to go on a double date when you are with family and you want to have loads of fun? The family-fun center: Trafalga.
Collin was a baby and didn't want to ride the bumper boats... he knew we would team up against him and he would be soaked by the end despite the fact that I pinky-promised we would never do that! Here's another installment of he said/she said date night.

She Said:
I blame the fact that I came in dead last g0-carting on the heels.
I didn't realize what a baby I was until I was at the top of the rock climbing wall. ("What do I do now?" Don't look down. Don't look down.)
Yes, I still brag about my skee-ball skills, which haven't changed much since I was six.
Dippin Dots are the real reason I wanted to come here.

Pants, Shirt: F21//Belt, Shoes: Ruche



Be very grateful this photo is blurry.
He said:
As you can see from the picture above, I wore cargo shorts that night. Cargo shorts say, "Hey, I'll hold all your stuff. You just worry about making friends."
I came from behind on the go-kart racing and took the Checkered flag. No really. I took it, from Dale the go-cart attendant guy. Dale chased me in his Nascar Crocs. A wiseman once said, "Don't ever judge a book by it's cover, unless that book is wearing Nascar Crocs." (I am the wiseman who said that.) I never really understood Crocs. Whenever I see someone in Crocs, my first thought is, "Did you go hiking AND swimming today?" Free yourself. Burn the Crocs. (sorry nurses)

What was I talking about again?

We climbed a fake rock wall with screwed in handgrips made for Oompa Loompa fingers. I often wonder how Andre the Giant would've climbed a rock wall, his fingers were like bananas. But then I remembered when he climbed the Cliffs Of Insanity in Princess Bride, he used the rope. I miss Andre the Giant. RIP Andre.

Chris is really tall, like Andre. I don't think he's a "Giant" though, at least according to Wikipedia. He does sometimes drive with his head out the sunroof, and it's really patriotic when the American flag is near his head, like in this photo. It's almost as patriotic as the tattoo I have on my lower back of a Bald Eagle eating a McRib. I think it'd be funny if Andre the giant drove like a Mazda Miata or something.



Yesterday we said goodbye to my sister, Ashley, Chris and Taimi... as they head back to Germany. :'( We had so much fun this summer with them & miss them already. Thank goodness for Skype!
Happy Weekend! Any fun plans?

Double dates with sisters are the best! You guys look like you had so much fun...love the pics! Thanks for sharing.

(As per usual, Collin's comments had me laughing out loud. Especially since I am a nurse and Crocs are a staple in our house :)

That looked like a super fun time. We have places like that here in Illinois. I think me and the new hubby need to have a date similar to this. We could REALLY use it!
