#1,298 River Rats + 3rd of July.
by Erin Napier
Well we went kayaking today with Josh and Emily. I think it’s important to note that I had exactly no arm strength before this adventure. And now I’m nearly crippled. But I did get an excellent tan!
Yes, we had removable tattoos of George Washington.
The Jubilee Singers are the cutest thing EVER.
Some of the youth singing Wagon Wheel, the church camp drive anthem.
Ben twisted my arm and made me sing.
Later on, storm clouds started rolling in.
We all stuck around in the park even though we could barely stay upright anymore. It’s just so good to live in the South in the summertime when you’ve had fresh Smith County watermelon and a charred hot dog and the cool front came through that made the air feel crisp, and no one is ready to go home quite yet. We can’t ever get these days back, you know? So why go to bed?
Until next year, 3rd of July.
