Dallin went to Homecoming with Sam. She is a cute girl (I see her every Tuesday) and I know they had a ball! Dinner was served at one of Dallin's friends house with Gabe's mom (who is the bomb and cooks authentic Mexican food) as the cook. All they wanted for dessert was Cinnamon Rolls so that was my part. I love that they do this, not only does it let them save some money on dinner but then we as parents get to interact with them a little more (checking to see if they are gentleman when we are not pushing!) They closed down the dance and danced every dance. I always loved it when the guy would actually DANCE!
Then they went to the park with another group to go ice blocking. Apparently that is against the law in Gilbert not to mention that since Dallin is only 17 he was breaking curfew as I was informed at 12:45 am by the police officer on the phone. So he was sent home in the care of his date, who was 18. The funny part was that since they did not have any other clothes and the boys did not want to ruin their dress pants - yes - they ice blocked in their boxers covered by towels. So when the police showed up and all the kids ran and jumped in to various cars, Dallin shoved his feet into his pants but did not do them up. The police car blocked his exit and when she (yes, the officer was a woman) shined her flashlight into the car Dallin's pants are undone!! At least she did see them ice blocking and the girls did not participate because they did not want to ruin their dresses. What a night!
It is a good thing we as parents have a good sense of humor!!
Dallin bought special vans (shoes) black and white! He was so stylin'!!
Dallin and Kai were able to get extra credit by building and sailing a cardboard boat. They were only allowed to tape the seams, no other waterproofing and it had to hold their weight and cross the pool. They got extra, extra credit for dressing the part.
Scavenging for cardboard.Starting - need I mention it is now about 11pm? They finished up about 2 am.They built some scale models of what would work and had to calculate it out as to how tall the sides needed to be not to swamp the boat.Lots of glue - they glued the boxes closed so the water would not soak quite so fast.
The finished product and the correct way to dress. They thought they were sooo cool.Preparing to launch...A little help from Jake....Don't they look official? Their boat was the best we saw by far. Here is a video on my SIL blog.They took several turns around the pool and then beached it for a while - put it back in and then it really started to take on water. Cardboard only lasts so long when it gets wet!!
