Well, I am back from my weekend! There was a lot going on, but it was a lot of fun.

Last night, I ended up meeting up with Sabrina and her boyfriend. The three of us walked around the shopping village on the island. Dave then came and joined us. We discussed what we wanted to do for the evening, and ended up at Cafe Bacio - cause we all love it a lot!!

This morning, I went to the beach with my mom and Dave's mom, and we brought along Tuffy. (Dave was still sleeping)

Tuffy had a great time on the beach. We let him go in the water a bit and walk around and he loved it!!





Then, after that, my mom and Dave's mom left to go home. Dave and I left the island too, but to go to another shore point about 35 minutes away to go to their water park. We went on crazy slides and tube rides and it was a lot of fun! (I'm afraid of heights - so Dave was a huge help as he carried my tubes/mats up to the top for me while I slowly walked up to the top, gripping the railing!) I don't mind the fact that the rides are high and that they then plunge down - and I don't mind roller coasters. But stairs that are high scare the shit out of me. I'm not sure why. Indoor malls - on the 2nd floor - scare me too! But there were so plunging drop rides, a lazy river, a two person tube ride, a spiral covered tube and a bunch of other slides. It was definitely nice, and a different type of event. At the island house, all we basically do is stay at the house, relax, go outside to the beach, return, eat, and meet up with friends at cafes or bars. So it was a fun summer activity. Last year we went to the (much smaller) water park on the island, and Dave wanted to visit this one again, so I'm glad we went.

After the water park, (where we ate chocolate Dippin' Dots ice cream for lunch) we got back in the car, drove another hour north to my big's house in my sorority for a summer sorority picnic. We ate cheeseburgers (LUNCH!!!) and swam in her pool and I had a lot of fun with the girls.

Here's a group picture:

Now I'm home, and super tired. I have a lot of laundry. (I've worn like 6 bathing suits in the past 3 days) I did a lot of laundry at the island house, but not all of it. My back is sore from being in a car for HOURS today. Yesterday we were in the car a lot house hunting. So I'm just happy to be home - but now I need to catch up on everything. I miss the beach and the atmosphere down there. I actually already miss Dave too even though I just dropped him off. Our moms get along great (they actually went to high school together too) and it was a really fun time. We had great dinners and funny conversations and I love how we are all close.

Laundry time. I'm pooped.
