Our friend Jake owns his own business and recently purchased a big box truck. Which got Autumn (his wife) scheming. She quickly called me so we could scheme together. And then we called Amanda to join in on the fun.
We blind folded our husbands and stuffed them in the back of the truck where we had set up pillows, blankets and hanging lanterns. Autumn drove around the neighborhood for a while trying to thoroughly confuse the men. Then we parked the beast at a local park. Darn Aaron and his time as a pizza delivery driver. He (and Jake) had a pretty good sense of where we were.
Amanda, Autumn and I whipped out a candlelit dinner followed by games and had ourselves some good food and some good laughs in the back of that truck.
As we were enjoying our delicious fondue dessert, we were rudely interrupted by the local law enforcement. Apparently, some of the nearby neighbors were a little suspicious of a big box truck parked out after dark. I think the police officer was more surprised by us then we were by him. I don't know what he was expecting to see...a drug deal? a stake out? burglars? Mormons? The primary presidency and their spouses hardly pass for criminals.
Blasted Flash. I'm certain it looked cooler than this.
