A "Dumb and Dumber" Moment

OK, so how many of you remember the movie Dumb and Dumber? 
Come on, don't be shy,... you know you watched it!

Anyway, one of the scenes that always sticks out for me is the one when Harry and Mary were playing in the snow. Mary playfully throws a little snowball at Harry, and in return he pounds her with a snowball to the face and then tackles her to the ground. So it quickly goes from cute and flirty to downright nasty for poor Mary. I've got one word for you: HILARIOUS!

Just in case you're claiming you've never seen it (and come on already,...I know you have) or you just don't remember it, you can go here to check out a quick clip of the scene I'm referring to.

So if you're currently finding yourself asking why I'm bringing up this scene from the crazy 1994 comedy, well the answer is simple. You see, our family just had a nice little Dumb and Dumber moment of our own.

Like my previous post mentioned, last weekend we went to the lake. And playing at the beach was one of our favorite family moments. I had my camera on hand and was going crazy snapping away, like I always do, when I heard Isabella tell her Daddy: "I'm gonna splash you,...." And she did, she kicked the water with her cute little kids' size 10 foot, and it looked a little something like this:
And then Harry, sorry, I mean Daddy, kicked back, with all his might and his big ol' mens' size 10 1/2 foot. Nice!

Needless to say, I was so shocked I did not get a picture of what his splash looked like, but I can tell you it was like a tsunami hit Isabella. Oh, and did I mention she hates having her face splashed? Yes, she does! Let me tell you, she was MAD!

Her Dad could not get to her fast enough. He felt so bad.
But just between us, I told him last night that I was going to post about our little Dumb and Dumber family moment and we laughed ourselves to tears.

Michelle said...

seen the movie. happens to be one of my husbands favorite...he even has the movie poster hanging in our "game" room. The picture of Isabella with daddy is can see that bottom lip out and can tell she's ticked!

Liz Butler said...

Yeah, definitely not one of his proudest daddy moments. She was beyond ticked. Poor girl! It's really funny now, though!

LOL! But poor Isabella.

And now I know you won't believe me, but I've not yet watched Dumb and Dumber. But your post had inspired me to check it out. :)
