This next post is written by the both of us together. We have color coded our separate sections so it’s hopefully not so confusing :)
Jon – Red, Michelle – Purple.
Winter break this year was pretty great and admittedly I would not have liked it to have ended so soon. But, duty calls and I am now back at the center, back in training.
Things started out awesomely. To give you an idea, it was kind of like this (except I got Red) :)
Yes, Michelle got me a Nintendo DS Lite with Pokemon FireRed and got herself Pokemon Sapphire in hopes that we could “catch ’em all” together. I have to admit that I spent more time playing the game in the first week I was home than I should have. I now have 56 Pokemon in my pokedex and 8 gym badges. I had cut my playing time down to make sure I wouldn’t finish the game before my break ended :P
|Ye. Pokemon Fire Red :)|
|We high-fived. Awesome!|
Jon sent this comic to me a while ago and my goal was to reenact each slide (I even bought a headband with a black bow) and have it captured in photos. Unfortunately, Sapphire didn’t arrive in time (1st seller became inactive and I had to order from another) and Jon’s reaction was not as dramatic as Derp’s. (I have 1 gym badge and I’m having trouble remembering what types of Pokemon beat what.)
Also included in our ski trip was a group dinner at the Common Man and a group breakfast at Flapjack’s Pancake House the next morning. Both were delicious and both are highly recommended.
