This weekend was great. It couldn’t have gone any better, even with an unexpected ending. Friday night Gwendolyn and I had to prepare for Saturday as we were hosting a party for Jake and Beth, who recently got engaged. Saturday morning was also spent doing the final set up and preparation of the food.
Around 7 oclock everyone was showing up, and the party instantly came alive. Everyone seemed to enjoy the fajitas we grilled. We also had a nice rum punch to go along with it. Our deck and newly crafted pick nick table seemed to be a great success, as the whole party was mostly spent outside.
A couple hours into the party, my good friend Jonathan wanted to show off his unicyling skills. So everyone flocked out to the front yard and watched him unicycle his way down the street. He sooned had another following from all the neighborhood kids. They came riding on bicycles wanting to race and ride around Jonathan. I personally think they might have thought Jonathan was a clown as he was wearing a bright yellow shirt and he does have the crazy hair. 🙂 I of course had to give this amazing contraption a try. It looks so easy, how hard could it be right? Hard…very hard… After about 10mins I was able to get on it rather easily, but could not actually go anywhere. I think I may have gone possibly 2-3 feet unassisted. My dad on the other hand, who hadn’t ridden one in about 40+ years, got right on and cycled on down the road for about 20-30 feet. Not too shabby for an old fart! 😉

Later that night when a few of us were left, something amazing happened. Jake, Brian and Myself came up with a great idea. Being that we all had too much to drink, we knew we would have to wait till the next morning, to act on it. But it was one of those things where if you actually slept on it, you might not have the balls to do it the next day. Alas, with too much to drink, we were going to have to wait. The next morning we woke up, the conversation still on the same topic of last night. We were a little more hesitant today, but we all thought it would be a really cool thing to do and we talked each other into just going for it! Before we could do it, we wanted to get some food, so we headed to Jasons Deli for a bite to eat. After lunch we went through what we thought we couldn’t do and now we are all marked as friends forever, as you can see once you follow the link below:
