Yesterday Mindy and I went to check out the Teton dam since it began to rain. We had previously planned on playing a game called trackball, but I don't think it would have been any fun at all if it were raining the whole time. Mindy had never been to the Teton dam before, so I figured it might be a good activity.
I was surprised to find out that my little Honda Civic could make it all the way down to the bottom and then back up the steep road that goes down to the bottom of the valley. Mindy and I just played around near the water for a while, skipping stones and talking... Eventually we decided that it was time to go back to Rexburg.
We stopped by Jamba Juice to get some tasty beverages, after which we went up to Mindy's place to get the trackball game. The rain had cleared out pretty well, and the sun started to shine again. We finally got to play trackball. heh... so yeah, we walked on down to the park where we wanted to play.
Right as we entered the park, we saw a couple laying on a blanket having what seemed to be a very enjoyable time together. Both Mindy and I just thought, "GET A ROOM!!!" Anyhow, we sat under a tree not too far away from them to enjoy the company and the beverages. At a certain point in time, we both looked over at the couple on the blanket. Come to find out that we're both quite familiar with the two individuals. We just laughed at them for a while and then took off to the other side of the park to play. I found it to be a rather humorous situation, personally.
Trackball is actually pretty fun, if you have the wind going the direction you have to throw anyway. Each player has a little whatchamacallit that looks like a lacrosse, only it has a much shorter handle. One player will lob a plastic ball towards another player, and they are to catch the ball in the whatchamacallit. The process continues indefinitely. It's great fun. I found that I'm not very good at the lobbing part, no matter which direction the wind is blowing. Mindy is pretty dang good at trackball, and I kinda feel bad that my nerdiness overpowers my physical activity now. hah
After playing trackball for a while, we found another pleasant tree to chill under. We talked about a lot of things. Life is absolutely beautiful with Mindy in my arms. Ahh..
