My friend Angie turned 30, and one of her college roomates turned 29. In order to celebrate their big days they decided that we should have a sumo wrestling party... It was something they've wanted to do since College I guess... and it was definitely a GREAT time!!! :) There are A LOT of pictures, BUT I did narrow it down to just "this many," and that task was not an easy one! ;)
It was a beautiful morning, and the suits were "ready!"
The birthday girls getting "dressed:.... haha!! I think Angie was taunting Shefali in this picture! ;)
...looks like Shefali was READY!! ;)
...and it begins!
....and after all that, they finally went down!
The birthday girls!! :)
Then it was Jeff and Brian's turn!
They were pushing each other hard... and after a minute or so they were down!
....so we told them they couldn't use their hands!
...and then it was mine and Rose's turn... ;/ sorta ready! ;)
..haha! we spent so much time laughing because I couldn't take Rose's request to knock her down seriously! ;)
then we tried the no hands approach!!
...and more laughing... haha! Don't let the pictures fool you, she knocked me on MY A$$ twice... but Brian was nice enough not to get that on camera! ;) Made me realize how out of shape I am... BUT it was a GREAT time! I'm sure I would do it again in a heartbeat! ;)
Matt and Charles were next! and doesn't Matt look so excited?? haha! ;)
...haha!! and Charles somehow got talked into the pink suit... and YES he was excited to get his sumo on?? ;)
....and naturally, the first man down was Charles! haha! ;)
...then it was Brent and Annie's turn, and they were BY FAR the funniest!
he kept trying to get her to push him....
....But she couldn't/wouldn't stop laughing... haha!
....soooooo, they went down together, in a hug like style!! ;) and she rolled, and rolled, and rolled around in that suit... so they were done after that!! ;) THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, guys for the laughs... ;)
...then we moved on to play a little tennis... That we an all do without causing injury to anyone! ;)
...after that we ate a little, caught up a litte, and then Rose and I left, I had another baby shower to get to, and Rose had to go home to get ready for work the next day!! It was a wonderful morning filled with LOTS and LOTS of laughs, and good friends!! :) I LOVE these guys and I can't wait 'till we do this again... and believe me, we planned to do it again... BUT I think next time we will plan to have a lot more people who want to participate!! ;)
