Back to the "first dates"

Saturday was such a fun night for Colby and me. We were both home that night (which has become rare for a weekend night) so decided to take advantage of it. Usually when we are both home at night without homework to do we end up cuddling up on the couch and watching a movie. I really wanted to get out and do something and Colby thought that sounded fun as well. We brainstormed a few ideas, and ended up doing "typical Provo first dates..."

We started off going to the huge park out by the freeway with a fountain just like the one on Friends and a huge spinning swing. It kinda reminds me of the swinging swings at amusement parks (minus the motor doing the footwork.) It has a tall pole in the center with branches coming out at the top with swings attached (the swings form a circle around the center). If you run around really fast while holding the swing, you can jump on the swing and then it keeps spinning around. so fun! Sorry for the bad description.

We went from there to Walmart to pick up a few art supplies. I had a friend who used watercolors on a date to paint pictures of each other and Colby had an idea to get colored modeling clay. We bought the watercolors and clay, but didn't have time to use it. :(

BYU has a huge bell tower with really bright spot lights lighting it up all night. We had heard that the lights get so hot you can roast marshmellows over them. We gathered up tin foil, hersheys chocolate, graham crakers and marshmellows and hit up the lights. It was funny, because while we were there we scared a couple or two away because we had already claimed the spot. So, apparently BYU students really do this! It was a lot of fun. Colby started asking me the typical "first date" questions like how many people are in my family, etc. It was really funny. I'm glad that I am way past that stage with him.

And, since all that went SOOO well, he even took me back to "his place" (which finally is my place too) and we watched a scary movie. So first date, right. Come on, sometimes those guys really need an excuse to cuddle. It's totally how Colby got me to cuddle with him the first time.

This sounds like so much fun! I definitely don't miss first dates in Provo, but if I could have them with Nate it would probably be pretty awesome!!!

So hi Katie, I don't know if you remember me. My name is Melissa Bailey, now Melissa Mott. Like 10 years ago you and I went to EFY and randomly became bathroom sharing buddies! Your brother Nathan and I were best of friends (he was even my imaginary friend when he wasn't around) when we were little little kiddy's. Yeah, so my mom saw your blog off of your mom's blog and I am a little bit of a blog stalker. So I hope you don't mind if I fallow your blog. Its just so cute!
