So…the long weekend has come to an end. And part of me is sad that it has…but the other part, is totally happy! Now before you say, “what on earth is she thinking” let me explain.
I love the 4th, it’s my favorite holiday ever! This year…3 of my friends and I decided to go camping and tubing. Sounded like fun and a great idea! Only one problem…I’m really not an ‘outdoors’ kind of gal. But it was car camping, and it seemed easy enough. I was totally wrong!
First night, seemed fine…until the down pour of rain mixed with the 0 ground padding occurred. I woke up on the wrong side of the sleeping bag if you will and started my day by slipping into the river while trying to pee outside! With good spirit, I laughed it off and got ready for our rafting and tubing trip down the river, little did I know that my slip earlier that morning would be nothing compared to what I’d encounter on this wild ride!
After pumping up the raft and waiting for our friend to return from parking the car miles down the road we were ready to go…only one problem, the bottom of mine and my friend’s raft had deflated…it wasn’t much, but we’d soon find out that it really was a big deal! We hit a ton of rocks and every rock we hit, we felt on our bums! OUCH!!! I thought to myself, if we’re having this much trouble rafting, what are we going to do about tubing when our bootys are fully in the water?! Sure enough, I found out the hard way…and on our way down the river tubing I hit my butt so hard it was bleeding!!! 1/2 way through, I had to get out and wait for my friends to come pick me up.
So, as you can see…I was quite happy to get home. And now that I’m exhausted and had a full day to rest…I’m ready for the long weekend to be over with, so that I may get to next weekend and make up for this last one 🙂
Hope you all had a great 4th of July!!!
