My friend Vanessa and I have been talking about going on a double date for a long time, and we finally did it! I don't know why we waited so long?!?! Vanessa's wonderful niece Elissa babysat all three of our boys as we hit the town rolling.......literally. We had a blast racing indoor race-karts. Josh and I were polar opposites as far as race results go.
Josh and I have been trying to do a few more dates but none have been this hands on. Josh has always had a need for speed, and I always have a need for socializing, so this double was a perfect combination. I was looking forward to some laughing, and boy did we! Looking like oompa loompa's with our blue jumpsuits and black head socks were just the beginning of it.
After our sweaty and intense race we headed over to the Spaghetti Factory. The table talk and grub were absolutely wonderful. We really never had a lull in conversation as just when a moment of silence passed by someone would start laughing, or say Would you rather????? Would you rather ?? is a game we started playing around a campfire at a ward campout a few years back. Ever since then, it has been one of our most favorite pastimes with our old friends from the Manistee Ranch Ward. Usually we go around a circle and take turns as to who comes up with the ultimate decision. Josh was trying hard not to participate, but I know deep down he was having internal conflicts on what guy he would rather kiss, or the limb he would have to have chopped off. We would just skip him and come up with something even more hilarious than the last round. This game keeps us laughing and grossed out forever. Endless entertainment...if you're in good company, and we were! I truly am thankful for such a fun evening with my "Pumpkin" and close friends.
