jane was in town for the long weekend, and it was so wonderful to see her and be able to spend so much time with her. we had ourselves a few fun adventures over the last few days.
on thursday dillard, jane, pat, and i went to mud island to see the fireworks. my friend ruby gave me four vip passes for the celebration, so we enjoyed some free food and beverages and then got a good spot on the lawn to watch the show. after they finished we met christina and ryan at the blue monkey where we ate, drank, and played pool until way too late.
on friday i had lunch at my parents’ house and then took a solid nap. after i woke up we went to the hu. rooftop for walshie’s birthday. we got lucky with beautiful views and pleasant weather, and we stayed for a few hours catching up and enjoying the lookout.
saturday morning i picked up riggs and went to the office to get stuff prepped for junior conference. when we wrapped up there we headed over to chris and jessi’s for their 6th of july party. people came and went all day, and riggs had fun playing with zoe, so we stayed for most of the day, and then alex and solomon came over that night.
and finally on sunday riggs and i went to dillard’s house to watch the women’s world cup final and to celebrate brie’s birthday. we watched some soccer, ate a lot of swanky’s, went for a dip in the pool, and shared a glass of old monk for the first time in far too long.
it was a busy, exhausting weekend, but it was also exactly what i needed in so many ways. i am so thankful for college friendships that only grow stronger and deeper over the years.
