Dating...nerf guns...hide and seek...secret kissing??

Owie and I with our new Nerf guns

If you already saw the exact same thing on Courtney's blog I apologize. But on with my story... on Monday night Owen and I went on a double date with Courtney and Cassidy (who is one of Owen's cousins). We set them up on a date a few weeks ago and then we decided to go for round two. I think it is good for Owen and I because we actually go on dates that aren't dinner and a movie --which has always been our style.

So we were trying to think of things to do and Cassidy mentioned "Hey why don't we go buy Nerf guns and go to Discovery Park and shoot each other" Owen reacted as if he was a 6 year old little boy who just woke up Christmas morning. While Courtney and I looked at each other like "are you kidding me"? Courtney and I didn't have much of a choice after the boys started imagining their childhood Nerf gun years, so we went to Walmart and bought 4 little Nerf guns and went to Discovery Park (its a park here in Cedar that is really neat park) to play. We teamed up girls against boys at first and then couples. We then went and pretty much played hide and seek and then shot at each other. Surprisingly this was a lot of fun!! At one point during our game I was trying to hurry and go down the slide and well I crouched down and kinda figured I was still little enough to fit down the slide. Well I definitely wasn't. I hit my head so hard on the top of the slide!! I now have a very tender bump on my head. It then got dark so we went home to mine and Owen's house and we turned off all the lights and continued to play in the dark house. It was some good times!! I kind of felt like I was in high school again...Owen thought we had to secretly kiss everytime we could. It was a lot of fun and Owen had the time of his life. He kept saying the whole night, "this is my thing". Any type of game that has to do with sniping, strategies, sneaking, shooting etc is "Owen's game".

Right before I got shot...
Cassidy and Courtney

Me and Courtney--I am pretty sure we kicked the boys butts..or we would have if we didn't always start laughing every time they would get close to us.

My favorite is the secret kissing. I didn't know Cassidy was in Cedar. See this is why blogging is good.

That sounds like tons of fun. We need to do something like that, whenever we go on dates it is always the same thing! Good Idea!
