Jesse and Joey

Jesse and Joey at the park before the dance

Jesse and her date, Joey, joined four other couples for pictures and dinner before the 2010 EVHS Homecoming Dance on Saturday. The original plan was for the 10 young people to eat dinner at Olive Garden while we went down to Applebee’s at the Burnsville Center to have supper with Katie, who was playing chauffeur for her sister, Joey, Allie and Nick. Laurie and I went to Applebee’s to wait for Katie and got a table right away. Unfortunately, the high schoolers weren’t as lucky at the big OG, where there was a 90-minute wait. So they all decided to eat at Applebee’s and were seated at the tables right behind us. Heh! Jesse was none too happy, but made the best of a bad situation (turn around, Dad! be quiet, Katie!) All in all, Jesse pronounced the evening fun. And as you can see from the picture, she was stunningly beautiful in her new dress (note Joey’s matching purple cast — now that’s color coordination). We have all of our pictures posted on Flickr. Click on the slideshow below to see them all.
