Robyn's Bachelorette Party

The night before the wedding, mere hours before Robyn became "one of us" we threw her the best bachelorette party Central IL knows how to throw! What else does one do in mid-August in Springfield, Illinois? Why, the state fair, of course!

Robyn, shortly after we decorated her with a 'bachelorette' hat, 'bride to be' sash, and glow necklace (for good measure).

To fully enjoy the state fair in all it's glory, we (and by we, I mean Danielle, Robyn's Maid of Honor) came up with a scavenger hunt for Robyn to complete (and really, I gave Danielle the idea, so I get at least 10% of the credit, right?)

Here, Robyn shows off the toilet paper veil she had to make...and wear. She's a better sport than I am!

Another task asked Robyn to walk into the ballroom and find an "older" gentleman to practice her wedding dance. Robyn asked one man, and he directed her to the oldest man ever.

Ferris wheel! Another scavenger hunt task had everyone ride a carnival ride on the midway. Robyn got to shout, "I'm getting married tomorrow!" from the top of the ride.

Here are my two favorite sisters (in-law).

Robyn was a little nervous on the ride. It shuddered quite a bit!


"I'M GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW!!!"

Robyn and me. Look at her! She's glowing! (Although it could be a reflection from the glow necklaces....)

One task on the scavenger hunt asked Robyn to get her face painted. Well, being that it was the first night of the fair and all, the face-paint stand closed "late" and closed at 8:00 p.m. Instead, Robyn got an air-brushed tramp stamp.

It was actually pretty fun to watch.

Ta da! The air-brush guy assured her that it wouldn't stain the inside of her dress.


Another task asked Robyn to kiss a pig. The barns were closed, so she blew a kiss to a pig at the petting zoo.

One of the last tasks Robyn completed was to feed fried key lime pie to 2 of us. I wanted to try it, and so did Susan!

Again, Robyn is an amazingly good sport about things. The ultimate verdict was that the pie was good and the breading was good, but together...very strange.


**There are no photos of the bachelor party because we have one digital camera between us and I took it the night before. Oh well. From what I hear Brian's bachelor party wasn't *too* wild and crazy, but that could just be something men say...**
