I don't have a key in front of me*, but on preview, they appear to be Amanita pantherina or Amanita gemmata. Although you report a ring in your description, I don't see it in the photo...I assume the spore print was white and that the base of the mushroom was fairly bulbous, possibly having a collar?
Some people consider it active (if you convert the ibotenic acid to muscimol first), although not necessarily fun.
Guessing from teh rather fuzzy photos I'd go along with Amanita. In order to have any chance at guessing species accurately we need to see the base of the stem and the volva. Until you have a good ID to species you should not eat them. Amanita is one of the very worst genera to experiment in.
