Sadies take two

The Thursday after Taz's Sadie's adventure in California, he got asked to another Sadie's with a friend from tennis.  Now don't be weird-ed out by this.  A lot of girls in get asked to multiple proms because they have friends at different high schools.  Lyric knew that Taz and Alexis had been planning a sadies date since last year and she wanted him to have that fun time, and boy did he have a great time.  But she just happened to have friends going the next weekend and so they encouraged her to ask Taz.  She and Taz had been watching the Rocky films.  They are Taz's favorite and he had her over twice for Rocky marathon's.  So she asked him out in rocky style.  Don't judge the quality of these pictures, he came in after rock climbing while I was in bed to show me that he'd been invited, so the pictures are quick snaps.

They started the day with a hike at Red Rock.  I had texted Sierra whom had organized the whole thing and volunteered to meet up with them to take pictures at some point. Garry, my assistant and I met up with them about 4pm for a photo shoot.  Any chance I get to practice my photography and editing I'll take, and Garry is great at helping pose them and line them up and all that.
Here is Charlie and Andrea 

Andrew and Sierra
Megan and Ryan
Taz and Lyric

We did some group shots in the tunnel too.

Some boys only shots

and girls only shots
Then Garry and I left and they continued on with their date.  They went to Gravady, and indoor jumping place and then to Claim Jumper for dinner and then to Sierra's for a movie.  He had a great time with his friends.

Sadies 2k16 in detail

This was the invite to Sadies.  It was so stinking fun!  I'm amazed at how it turned out!  She really knows that Taz is obsessed with Eminem and it was the perfect invite for him.  It took Taz forever to reply back.  We had this idea to make slim shady (Another name for Eminem) with car shades and slim jims.  Well, Lex had been in an accident and didn't have her car.  It was in the repair shop, so Taz kept waiting and waiting.  Finally, the night before Sadies, he gave her the reply.
I love arrow pointing to M & M's (Eminem)
I love arrow pointing to two car shades with slim jim's attached to them (Slim Shady)
and I'd love to go with you to Sadies

 Three mom's drove the group down to California.They left about 5:30 am.

Taz and Lex have been planning to go to a dance together for a few years now. They picked Sadies and going to Six Flags last fall as the date.  February 6th was the big day. 

  I think they stopped around Barstow to take pictures and have a little break. 

After that the next stop was six flags
 The rides are ranked according to severness.  I  believe 1-5 with 5 being the scariest.  They rode all the 4 and 5 rides.  They broke off from the main group and hung with Beanie and Alan most of the day and therefore were able to ride way more rides than the big group.
Then they went to Marie Calendars for dinner.  Then they decided to drive to the beach and walk along a pier and take a few more pictures. 

They got home around 2 am.  Taz said it was the most fun he's ever had on a school planned date (think prom and homecoming).  He and Lex are such good friends, I hope they stay that way for a long time.
