I had a just glorious fourth of July weekend. The town fireworks were very good and I enjoyed seeing classmates I hadn't seen all summer long. We left gloomy Chicago around 9 on Saturday and arrived safely to the lake by noon.The weather wasn't too good when we first arrived, rainy and chilly,so my girlfriends and I decided to go to lunch at the clubhouse. It was a real simple place and we got the best surprise in the world... free ice cream! It was quite a treat! After lunch, we headed back and played Apples to Apples. Have y'all ever played? It is such a fun game. The sun finally came out around 3, so we were able to go tubing. The lake was SO terribly chilly but I was brave and jumped right in. The tubing was very fun but quite tiring. Later on we went and saw the fireworks at the dock. It was a beautiful show and a great ending to the day. On Sunday, we layed out in the sun and read. I am currently reading Chasing Harry Winston, quite the juicy beach read. Just as I got fully enthralled in a juicy part I felt a piercing sting on my hand. Guess what? I got stung by a big,fat bumble bee!! It really hurt! After the bee bite,we decided to go to the beach and cool off a little. We arrived at the beach and were able to sun and talk. We left the lake soon afterwards and stopped at Dairy Queen on the way home. It was as usual, delicious. I had a chocolate shake, which was absolutely yummy. The drive home was fine, full of laughs and food. We all arrived back to town, tired and giggled out. It was overall a lovely weekend full of laughing, singing, and relaxation. Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend as well!
