i'm a professional tuber

Last weekend I escaped for the day. I got to go to the lake with some of my favorite girls. Tessa and Eric invited us out on their boat and I can't pass that up. I had the worst sore throat but the week before had been a little rough so I was ready for a day out. I had the best time. It was cloudy and we had to try and outrun the rain a few times, but the day was perfect and so, so fun. I wakeboared for the first time (I can't believe I haven't done it before, how sad!) and loved it. I got right up and it felt awesome. Tubing is still my favorite thing. Eric was whipping us around like crazy. I have never gone that fast or flown that high on a tube before. I was laughing so hard I was about to cry. We couldn't see a thing from getting sprayed by the water and a few times I was afraid I would bite my tongue off from the crazy air we were catching. I think Tessa and I deserve some sort of trohpy for how long we stayed on the insane ride Eric took us on. My arms were like jello. It was awesome.

I loved hanging with Andrea and Nikki. We spent so much time together when we were in high school and our day on the lake felt like we were 18 again. I love those easy friendships where you can pick up right where you left off and it's like not a day has gone by. Tessa is probably one of the funnest people to be with. She is so funny and if the two of us weren't so busy I would bombard her with my friendship and make her hang out with me all of the time. For now, I will just invite myself along on the boat every once in a while.

I love summer. Love, love, love it. I wish that it didn't have to fly by so fast.

Oh my gosh, that looks so fun! I miss the lake so much- that's my all-time favorite part of summer in CO! And I love Tessa too- she's so much fun to be around. Boy, would I have some stories to tell you about her from high school, but I won't, cause she'd probably hunt me down if I revealed her secrets!
