I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend – ours was really fun and really exhausting. On Thursday, I left work early and drove back to my house where I had to finish packing for the weekend as quickly as possible and change into something cute for a wedding rehearsal. I rode up to Orlando to the Dubsdread Country Club with Ashley & Matt for our friend Michelle’s wedding rehearsal. The traffic was kind of bad so we made it just in time. The rehearsal went smoothly and then we all enjoyed a nice dinner together. After dinner, a bunch of us went out on the town for some drinks. There were numerous Alpha Phi sisters there for the wedding so we were out causing trouble, as usual.
Monday we couldn’t go scalloping since Ryan’s boat was broken so we rented some kayaks and went out in search of manatee. Charley and Mary followed behind the kayaks in their boat because they had the dogs with them and didn’t have anywhere to leave the pups while we kayaked. After an hour or so, we were all so tired that we ended up letting Charley pull us behind his boat back to the rental place. It was pretty fun being towed in the kayaks except a big wake hit Al & Doreen’s kayak and swamped it, LOL. So they had to get out and dump the kayak and get back in. Fortunately it was only a few feet deep so it wasn’t too difficult – mostly just funny. By the time we got the kayaks returned we were all overheated and exhausted so we just grabbed some McDonald’s for lunch and all headed home. We got back home around 8pm and scrambled to get ready for the week before we collapsed in our bed.
Overall the weekend was really fun and also really exhausting – I never thought it would be more relaxing and easy to be at work, haha! We are definitely going to do a scalloping trip next year and maybe have it planned out a little better. This year worked out pretty well though considering we planned it at the last minute due to Hurricane Isaac. Hope more of our friends can come with us next year!
