Wade and I both slept in and got up just in time to get Marshall and his friends from the airport. Marshall and a few friends are in DC to run the Marine Corps Marathon. We managed to get all seven of us in our car and deliver them to their hotel, which is conveniently right down the road from my Aunt’s house. We had lunch with them and then headed home to finish up our costumes.
I made another airport run to deliver Jamie Richey to the official B and B Party House and then returned to my Aunt’s for dinner. Wade and I got dressed up and headed out the door. I think our costumes are self-evident, but I will explain. We are both working games. Mine is the simple Tic-Tac-Toe and Wade is Operation. Yes, Wade’s costume works. His nose lights up and he buzzes if you hit the metal while trying to get out the pieces.
Wade had a great night. His costume held up and continued working all night and he won first prize in the costume contest. The prize is a mug picturing previous years’ winners and a bottle of alcohol. We don’t drink so I believe Jamie ended up with the bottle. Wade did finish the evening off with a try at the ice luge with Traci.
