(picture is from our Murder Mystery party! read more about it below)
We have been having so much fun this summer! Jake gets off work earlier (because of his part time schedule), so we have so much time to hang out together during the week! Here’s a snapshot of some of the things we did this past week, once Jake got home from work:
- Used our summer bowling passes and went bowling. We sucked a lot this time. Maybe bowling isn’t one of those “the more you practice the better you are” type of things.
- Rode our bikes along the beach and tried to find a place that sells churros. We were successful in finding a place, but they were sold out of churros.
- Watched The Incredibles 2.
- Watched Jurassic World. Jake has been non-stop obsessing over Jurassic World ever since the trailer came out, so of course we had to watch it the day it came out.
The biggest highlight of our week was the Murder Mystery Party we hosted! There was a surprising amount of prep work for the game. Cindy spent all week printing out character info sheets and stuffing them into envelopes. Cindy’s friend helped Cindy decide on the menu and came over on Friday to help make some of the food. The game we chose was called “Lei’d to Rest”, so we spent all of Friday night decorating our place to make it ‘Luau themed’.
The actual game was so much fun! We had a handful of our close friends wandering around our small apartment trying to figure out who the murderer was. This was our first time hosting any sort of party (that wasn’t a wedding) and we think it turned out great! We had so much fun, and as always, wished we had more time to hang out with everyone.
