Weekend Festivities

So, Friday evening my wife and I helped out at BattleCry @ WPI 5 by being the Guardians Of The Food (collecting tickets) and my helping reset the field. This year’s game involves a holding bin of 18 dodgeball-type balls above each alliance station, and filling them each match can get a bit tiring and challenging. But it was much fun.

Saturday morning we went to Battlecry to help out more. Then we went home, got changed, and went to ‘s wedding. It was quite lovely. Then, we went home, I changed again, and we went shopping at Wal-Mart. Then Jessi went to the pre-dinner reception while I helped out at the elimination rounds at Battlecry. Our own Team 190 lost in the semi-finals, and the exciting final match was won by teams 181 and 177. Then I went back to the reception to socialize and have dinner. The reception was very yummy and lots of fun. Then Jessi and I went back home.

This morning we went to church as usual, and then we went shopping at Wal-Mart to pick up a few more things, and then we went to Jessi’s parents’ house for lunch and to watch the Millbury Independence Day parade. It was the longest parade I’ve ever seen, lasting a full hour and a half. Then we played a couple games with Jessi’s family (I won a game of hearts by pure luck, and then won a game of Outburst on a team with my father-in-law vs. Jessi, her mom, and her sister).

So, all in all, a very busy weekend. I’m going to bed now.
