Inflatable Fun!

Our friends at church, Tonya & Eric, had a bunch of us over on a random Tuesday night a couple of weeks ago to play on their new inflatables and to eat yummy Fall food: grilled cheeses, hot dogs, & chili! Yum! It was Mason's first time to play on an inflatable and he was a little hesitant. Plus, most of his friends here are 2 1/2 years old, so he hasn't yet really figured out where he fits in. He just kinda chases all the big kids and tries to do what they're doing, but he's just not really big enough yet. It's kinda sad! He just stares at all the action. I guess at that age all the kids are ignoring each other or fighting with each other anyway, so I guess he's not missing out on too much! :) Anyway, it was such a fun night and there ended up being a big group of us there. Marc's mom was staying with us a few days since she was here having cataract surgery by Marc's partner, so she got to go with us to this shindig. She kept her eye on Mason while Marc and I got to chat with our friends. Except the beginning of the night, Marc and I were joining in the inflatable fun and perched ourselves right up on them! Oh, the night also included an inflatable obstacle course relay race, started by Melissa McMillen and me. She beat me, but everyone agreed it was only cuz I had socks on and she didn't! Hee hee! She ended up being undefeated by the end of the night, including even beating our husbands in the race! It was pretty hilarious to watch all of us grown adults racing through those thangs like maniacs! Especially the dads who had come straight from work in their dress clothes! :)




Wheeeeeee!!!!!

Thanks Tonya, Eric, and sweet little Audrey for inviting us all over to play! Oh yeah, and we all agreed that Audrey definitely has the coolest backyard, with 2 huge inflatables, a custom-designed playhouse built by her daddy, and all!

I'm usually the one called "Erica", not Eric! He might appreciate you changing the spelling. HA HA!! We were so glad you guys made it to our first inflatable night. We had so much fun with everyone. (And I hadn't even noticed the undies! I had to go back and check out what you were talking about!)
