The Dorseys

So I decided to put this into the “Vacations” category even though we just stayed in Provo. We had a 3 day weekend due to our great Presidents, so my sister and brother-in-law came down. Tracey and Jacob live in good ole’ Rexburg, Idaho.

Here are some of the fun things that we did:

We played a lot of this! Way fun game!

It’s amazing how many times you can play one game and not get bored with it. Anyway, we got some pretty fun games going. In this game, you are suppose to choose a variety of cards at random. Typically it was Tracey and I who were trying to choose the cards that we wanted, while the boys were refusing to allow us to rig it.

Similarly, it seemed boys against girls when it came to rules for this game as well. Tracey “coincidentally lost the instructions”, and then would make up her own. However, the boys seemed to have a bigger problem with “no one can touch the meticulously placed pile of money that I have, which is hiding my $10 million” rule. To counter our insistence on keeping this rule, Jacob decided to terrorize our piles and spread them all across the table, revealing all of our secrets.

Some phrases that were heard regularly throughout playing the game:

“Tracey is being kind of mean right now!” -Jacob

“Are you kiddin’ me?!” -Jacob

“I like this game. It’s really fun.” -Tracey

“Yeah, I like it because it is fast.” -Jacob

(Without realizing it, we had this conversation 5+ times. Then, of course, we did it on purpose.)

And we ate here.

We wanted to show Tracey and Jacob a Provo favorite, so we took them here . . . and I think it’s safe to say that Tracey loved it. I think Jacob did, too, the second try around.

And we saw this at the Varsity theater on campus.

Have you seen this movie? I love it! Ken and I were a little nervous because we thought that it was going to be a dud compared to Despicable Me since they have similar stories, but it definitely wasn’t a dud! It was funny watching it at the Varsity theater, too. After the show, all of us commented on how funny the crowd was. When there wasn’t a funny part, the crowd seemed to laugh uncontrollably. We’ll blame it on freshmen (no offense).

So overall, fun week! Too bad we have a Monday schedule tomorrow on Tuesday (aka lots of homework!).

    I love the little Tracey/Jacob convo. Also, Landon’s roommates have that Monopoly game. Me and Keech were really good at it…psych.

    P.S. I’m listening to the Mozart thing right now.
    P.P.S. Jane commented on my blog today.

    ps. stace and i really are super good at that monopoly game. pretty much we should be the ones deciding whether the housing market should be good or not, because we clearly have the knowledge.
