gallon challenge//boating.

today was quite the day. I guess you could say that when you live in small town Colorado you find some weird ways to entertain yourselves. Today this entertainment came in the form of the gallon challenge, visiting popular kayaking sites, and driving around in Hayden's van.

In case you don't know... the gallon challenge is just that- you have one hour to drink a gallon of milk. Sounds not too bad? hah. Your body can't handle that much milk and you end up throwing it back up. So basically your goal is to drink a gallon of milk and hold it down for 60 minutes. There was a big group of us that went to Hayden's house, but only 4 actually tried the Challenge. {Sam blogged about it too.}

Katie gave up about 2 glasses in, but Hallie, Erik, and Hayden stayed strong. Hallie come in 3rd, getting through just over half her gallon before... well you know. Erik got through about 2/3. But Hayden... he got through almost the whole gallon! There was probably about an inch left of milk in his carton, but he refused to finish it! Haha, so yes, I spent an hour of my day watching teenagers literally drink milk until they threw up- and it was hilarious.

We then took a ride in Hayden's van {remember when we painted it?} over to the m-wave. then through the adobes {I honestly thought that I might die} then through town. We found multiple dips in roads that we could go over at full speed. It was possibly one of the best afternoons... I spent it laughing hysterically. Umm... also, we even got air one time. WE FLEW. dang right.

My family then headed up to the lake for family home evening! Unfortunately we learned that the lake was too low to get our boat in the water, but we cooked hot dogs and roasted marshmallows and it was great fun anyways (:
