Capture the flag... ah yes, that is what we played yesterday for our cookout! The teams were: Shermon, Michael, Adam, Alex, Misha, Benjamin, Isaac, Tai and myself versus Chris, Jarred, Beth, Melony, Andrew, Ben, Mariah, Gideon and Mattea (I believe that's everybody).

The first game Alex and I were talking to the 'enemy' for the majority and then they took advantage of that and got our flag... hmm. Next game was a bit more serious... and what do ya know... we won! I got to carry the flag back to our side which was magnificant fun! Next game... well, I got captured pretty quick


(alas and alack) and then I was in jail for the rest of the game along with Michael and Alex. I tried so hard to convice the 'enemy' that they should let us go... but it did not happen as I would have liked... lol. Then before the game ended the Rawlieghs (Alex and Beth) had to head out...

I raced back to our side and Adam and I grabbed the pink flag and walked off victoriously! Then we burned the yellow flag... ('the enemies' flag). There were many fun moments of singing 'bananas unite' and many scraped up knees and legs and elbows (and a rather bruised side and I know my sister hurt her ankle a bit) all turned our well! While in jail Alex Michael and I all had water bottles and kept toasting to different things such as; our team, pink, being in jail ect.
Good times.


So... there were many more exciting things that happened... but I'm done for now!

sounds like a riot. always a fun game. especially in freshly mowed grass. and although this is totally random, ben is such a great name.

Little sister said...

Delian said...

Mattea K. said...

Hey, you know I still don't think that it was very nice of you to burn our flag...after all we won 2/3 games......
Also, we were the yellow team so WE were supposed to get the banana song.



Ok I'm done now.....lol

mrs. wells said...

new york is beautiful. seeing your pics i could feel the air and the grass, smell the new york smell. They reminded me of being up there as a kid. wonderful memories. Made me wish i could get in the car and go.

God is merciful beyond all reason.
and i sound like a smoker.

((i agree mom. dell, i can so smell that new-york-at-dusk-mountain air.))

Andrew said...

Smokers?

NY Mountain Dusk Air?

Is that that the name of a blue grass band or something?

m.wells said...

Damaris has laryngitis,hence she sounds like a smoker,alas and alack.

dams said...

andrew are you making fun of me?

cause you can't smell a blue grass band!

Tai said...

I don't know whether to laugh or cry... SOMEHOW I always seem to either miss being in pictures - or have really aweful ones taken of me... but more often than not I just don't make it into the pictures... *sniff, sniff*... and what's this about sniffing bluegrass bands? lol

~ME

Come to think of it, I have only been in one or two of the pictures I've posted!

It's a conspiracy.

Mattea K. said...

Andrew, Did you just post that in my name?! I mean, I swear I did not post that last comment....either that or I have short turn memory loss.....freaky.

Anonymous said...

how come so many new yorkers dont allow ninny mouses?? it hurts my emotion chip.;)


~the ninny mouse

Delian said...

awww... that is pretty sad... they probably should start allowing that... but some of them just want to know who's talking and stuff... weird... lol.

joel sczebel said...

duh.

Elizabeth said...

dams you are so sweet. i love you. mrs wells, your daughter will be treated as royalty when and if she comes to canada haha, it might not be good for her ego! haha.

i have never been to new york. i want to. but have never had the chance, but we get the BC dusk in the mountains smell here. and BC is pretty, really, beautiful.

josiah said...

I miss the mountain air!

joel sczebel said...

I've been to NY lots of times..............

joel sczebel said...

................

damaris said...

awww thanks aly. i love you too. (hey have you noticed i say it all the time now? aren't you happy?)

but don't treat me like royalty. we wouldn't have as much fun. and i would come home with even MORE pride to deal with.

Mattea K. said...

I have been to NY way to many times......I think we go there like 3 times a week.

(not that I'm complaining or anything)

Tai said...

"OUCH" Mattea! lol

Yeah, I guess since I've only known Dell for like 7 1/2 months I shouldn't expect her to post pictures of me on her blog... *sigh* lol

Yes - that was meant to be pathetic.

~Tai Kwan Do

Andrew said...

Well, I have known Del for almost seven years (that's like before blogging was invented) and she dosen't post pictures of me. At least not close-ups, that is.

Andrew said...

Not that she needs to.... I just wanted to let you know that you may be waiting for some time....

Little sister said...

True that Andrew....I've known Dell like a couple days or so more than you!!!hehehe
