SOOOOOOOoooooo after the game my roommate Katie had a brilliant idea to go and do a bonfire up at crack in the earth. Basically it is a place where people go to shoot guns during the day and have bonfires at night. As we were driving a HUGE lightening storm was rolling in. The closer we got, we started to realize that the eye of the story was right above where we were planning on building our fire. Do you think that stopped us? NO! We got there before the rain started and were able to start the pallets that a very nice auto man let us have. Just as the pallets caught on fire, the rain and wind set in. Being me, I was not afraid. Some of the people with us.... exact opposite. As the rain and wind picked up the 8 of us that were there all crammed in the truck. Comfortable... I think not. The storm passed us pretty quickly (without putting out the fire) and we all hopped out and starting roasting marshmallows and starburst. ABout 5 more people showed and it became a party. I sure do love the smell of camp fire smoke on my clothes.
Saturday, basically all the same people went up to St. Anthony (a little town about 15 minutes north of here) to a place they call the sandbar. Now, I know what you are thinking. That's way awesome! But let me stop you before you get all excited for me. This place had nothing like a sandbar, sand of any kind actually. It was a river, with rocks (much like Indianola), a diving board, HUGE pipe slide and a jungle gym. It was a bummer that there was no actual sandbar, it was still a pretty legit place to hangout on a hot sunny day for a couple of hours. Yes, I got even more burnt, but so worth it. Mom, I did put sunscreen on my second degree burn so don't you fret dear.
To top the weekend off, my flag football team killed at our last game 26 to 0! Sharda (my bestest friend) got 2 touch downs! Love her.
It was a great weekend. Now it's sunday and I have to go to school tomorrow. But then... a 3 day weekend! PHEW! I want it!
4 more weeks and then I am home!!!!!
