Being a kid again

Last weekend, we decided to have a party at our house, since we had no other plans. It was the best time I’d had in quite some time- the weather was fantastic (which never happens for my parties) and despite extending the invitations only five days ahead of time we had 23 people show up. With turnout that high, I don’t think I’m going to bother planning ahead on parties any more!

Eric and April came down for most of the weekend, but Sunday was the main party. It wasn’t for my birthday, but Dusty surprised me with a cake. We had a small cookout, played some yard games, and watched all the kids play together. Afterwards, in an attempt to recapture a piece of our own childhoods, we put together an impromptu dodgeball game, as you can see in the pictures below. I have to apologize to Laura for the second picture! At least it seems I aimed below the waist…

Sorry Laura...

After most folks left, Eric, Dave and I went down to the basement to record an audio commentary track for a DVD of some of our college experiences. We got Brad on the line via Skype and told some of our old stories to get them recorded for posterity. It turned out pretty entertaining, so we’ll have to show it next time the college guys get back together!

Tomorrow, if the weather cooperates, I’ve scheduled a time with friends and coworkers for reliving one of my favorite childhood activities: kickball!

  1. That hour-long bombardment game was the most fun I’ve had nearly all summer! What a riot it was…and I discovered that I wasn’t nearly as out of shape as I thought I would be.

    Either that, or Brent was just REALLY out of shape since I got to a ball before him nearly every time! đŸ™‚

  2. Yeah, well I found out how out of shape I really am! My legs were still sore that next day from all the running!

    I need to do more stuff like that though so I’m not all sore afterwards!
