The Date started at noon. Isaac picked me up and we met the other couples in the parking lot at RHS. Our plan was to have a scavenger hunt up at the Zoo! So we carpooled downtown to the Zoo. Isaac and I rode with Josh and Nicole, and we had a fun time getting to know each other better and telling good stories on the drive up. But, when we got to the zoo it was SO crowded. As it turns out... a baby elephant was born at the zoo a few days previously! This also resulted in a VERY crowded zoo. We couldn't find parking! Plan B?? Gateway mall! We all changed route and headed to the mall. We had a blast window shopping. We all got Orange Julius and also got a taste of some very eccentric cultural music! The day activity was so much fun, and we have a lot of inside jokes and pictures!
Then we were headed back home to get all dressed up for the dance! We curled my hair, and of course... we had to get a few photos. Isaac came and picked me up for dinner, and we did each other's corsages and everything. Of course I couldn't pin his flower on... and had to get help from mom. I always have thought the boys have it easy, they just have to put a band around the arm. No pins, no poking... :)
Then we drove to dinner! We ate at Dylan's house. He lives kind of up on a mountainside, and he has a very nice pool in his backyard, so they had a table set up beside the pool, the pool opened and lit. It was very pretty! We had a delicious italian dinner, and a scrumptious dessert! Sparkling cider and all.
Then of course, we headed to the dance! The line for pictures was WAY LONG, but it was worth the wait. It'll be exciting to see how the pictures turn out. The dance was a ton of fun. The senior officers used a "cruise ship" Theme and they had a really cool chandelier/light hanging from the center of the gym, and when we walked into the gym we entered by a ramp that passengers use to board a cruise ship. Great decorations, great music, great fun! And of course, what would a dance with Isaac be without Single Ladies?? Isaac and my friend Chase have the whole dance memorized... and they had an audience as they performed the whole number on the dance floor!! Ha ha. It was awesome!
After the dance we went to Josh's house and had some yummy ice cream :) We also watched Enchanted. It was such a fun date! Dances are always tiring... but always worth it!
My best friends Ashley, Kari, Audrey and I wanted pictures together in our dresses, but we never got time to take some the day of the dance (we were all in different gropus.) So, silly us, got back into our dresses to take pictures the next day. (of course!) It was actually a lot of fun, their moms took pictures of us and we had a good time together. We got a lot of fun pictures too! Oh, what to do when you get girls together with a camera?! Especially when we have pretty dresses ;)
So, the homecoming weekend was a success! It was a tiring weekend, and went by way too fast but it was a blast! There were also other homecoming fesitivites like Powder Puff football and Burning of the Wolf. My brother and I went to the homecoming game (Our school won!!) and overall, it was an exciting and memorable weekend!!
