This past Wednesday, Scott and I took Charles on a date...he chose an indoor ropes course. The course was short but we had 50 minutes, so we did the course over and over again and got pretty good by the end. Charles and I raced up a rope stairway about 6 times. He won 5 of the 6 races, and I really only won because his foot slipped through a space and he went down, getting a rope burn on his leg. But still, I won one! Scott raced once, but his stomach had been hurting all day so he took it easy. After the course we went out through 'the rainforest' which was a jungle gym.
We ended up going to 3 out of the 4 classes and leaving early, because during classes Scott found it was appendicitis and that they wanted to do surgery that night. One note-worthy class that I loved was Chef Brad's class on grains and healthy eating. We were going to see him the 4th hour when he does actual food demonstrations, but we'll have to save that for another year (apparently he goes every year to BYU ed week). He's pretty much a celebrity in our house, as we have seen most, if not all of his cooking shows. Amanda and Maren were so sweet to offer to come back with me early (I was going to call my aunt or cousin who lived near by to bring me home); we had been looking forward to this night out for awhile so I appreciated their kindness and positive and cheerful attitudes. I love our friends.
