Today was spent out on the lake with this awesome girl. After some coffee and catch up time, we walked the shops downtown, to my favorite store "Lucky Monkey." We hit up the rest of the town till 2 in the afternoon, and then headed to the dock to catch some rays. We didn't get much peace and quiet... you can't really expect that at a Threadgills house. It wasn't long before Will, Joseph, Jarrin, Lauren, Madison, and Abby (the cousins) were jumping all over us, and squirting us with water from their water guns and the hose... not to mention pushing us off the dock. Later, we tubed, and our bodies flew over massive waves (high enough to remind us that we're getting old, and our backs can't take the wild rides anymore). We ate watermelon, and slack-lined over the water, from our dock to our neighbors'. And THEN, we ran inside as the sun flew down, shivering in our wet suits, and sat in the big tubb to warm us. We watched as our little ripple of soap grew into a massive clump of BUBBLES! We had bubbles coming out the waazoo! So many bubbles we didn't know what to do! We sat there reminiscing over the years we've been friends. So many things that spark so many great memories from past years. 9 years to be exact. Best friends for 9 years. I informed Shayla we'd have to have an anniversary next year to celebrate the 10th! The entire summer we've gone without seeing each other, and today, the minute we saw each other, we picked up right where we left off. Now those are the type of friends that remind me to count my blessings.
