Pre-party was fun. Dave, Courtney, Sara, Beau, Randy, Jamie, Ryan, and Baby Parker were present for the pre-party, which consisted of drinking and hanging out at my parents’ condo.
Here are some pictures:
Everyone aside from Jamie, Ryan, and Parker then headed to the reunion at about 8pm (the reunion had started at 7pm) (the reunion was happening less than a block away so we just walked).
Here are some pictures:Then at about 9:30pm, we all headed back to the condo. Jamie, Ryan, and Parker were still there and we hung out for a little bit (we had brought back a friend named Esther who wanted to see Jamie and the baby). Meanwhile, the drinking continued at the condo (except for me – I was out of the game… I just wanted to call it a night).
Then Esther went back to the reunion… then Jamie, Ryan, and Parker left… and then everyone decided it was time to go back to the reunion. I said “no thank you”… I seriously was not feeling the reunion. Sara and Courtney tried to get me to take some more jello shots, but I was not willing (although they tried REALLY hard).
So after realizing I was seriously not returning to the party, they all went back.
Here are some pictures of them (Randy took my camera to get some pictures):I waited at the condo, and after about 30 minutes Randy and Dave returned (escorting a very inebriated Courtney).
Then Sara and Beau came back. After some discussion, it was decided that Courtney would stay at the condo (she was passed out), Dave, Beau, and Sara were going to go out to a bar, and Randy and I were going to go home (Randy had a headache and I was already done with the night).
So we got home at about 11:45pm. Randy described the whole evening as lame… and although I admit that I did not have fun at the reunion, there were some fun times in the evening (I’m not quite as negative as Randy).
- Seeing Sara and meeting Beau (they live in Florida… Beau is Sara’s boyfriend who I had never met… and he seems like a real winner… super nice, smart, and very easy on the eyes).
- Seeing Courtney so drunk… it was rather amusing.
- The pre-party… hanging out with everyone before the reunion was fun. It was just the reunion… it brought me down.
Oh well, at least I went. And at least it’s over - until the next reunion.
And here is one final picture, ride 'em cowboy!!!
