Go Ahead and Laugh at My Expense!

First let me start off by saying that today is my BESTEST best friend’s birthday. Love you my bestest!!

Kim and Kath2 

Today is her birthday but we all got together on Saturday and went to Maggiano’s on International Drive and then we headed to Old Town for some good ol’ family fun.

The kids rode Go-Karts and did the trampoline. The guys got to look at old cars and relive a little of their childhood. What did Kathy want US to do? She wanted us to get slung out of a giant sling shot. Not once, but twice. Might I remind you that we are over 40? LOL!

They video tape the whole thing and I have posted it here for your amusement! So go ahead and feel free to get your Monday laugh in at our expense.

This was the first ride! Watch the hair. It’s hilarious!

Getting ready to go on a second time! HAVE MERCY!

This was our second ride. You can see that I relaxed quite a bit. LOL!

It was SO FUN! What are we going to do next birthday Kathy? Bungee Jump? LOL!  NOT!

My husband guesses that it slings you up about 300 feet. WOO! HOO!

What crazy thing did you do this weekend?



  1. Bought an IPhone 4. For ME...thats CRAZY!!!

  2. Now that looks like FUN!!!!!!
    What a great way for two BFFs to spend a birthday!
    Peace and blessings!

  3. I would NEVER be doing that!! I can easily imagine losing the contents of my stomach if I did.

    Looks like y'all had a great time, though. What a blessing it is that you have your best friend living so close by.

    By the way, happy birthday to Kathy.


  4. I played this during our "quiet" school time...all the kids came running to see the "excitement!"

    Thanks for giving us a laugh! You are a blessing! :)


  5. Looks like you girls had too much fun. :)

  6. Wow..you are much more brave than I am! I'm so afraid of heights.
    Looks like you two had a great time though. It's so nice to have such good friends like that!

  7. OH. MY. GOSH!!! you girls!!!! MY bum is still puckered LOLOL There is NO WAY I could do that for just looking at how HIGH the two of you are!! Just watching it is making me nervous!! Soo glad you all enjoyed it so much! Going to tell your BFF Happy Bday :)

  22. OH, wow! Y'all are braver than I would be. My hubby wants me to try that. LOL!
