2nd Annual Birthday Boating Extravaganza


Summer is such a happy time for me...the beach, the sun, hanging out with friends outside...all good times. So as the summer comes to an end, I am not a happy camper. It just means that it's going get colder and colder and colder and colder... BUT now there is something in my life that makes the end of the summer more bearable. It's the Annual Birthday Boating Extravaganza!

Every year (as in this is the second year) my friend Lindsay and Kyla organize their birthday outing to Lake Lanier. We rent a pontoon boat, drive around the lake for 4 hours and drink and be merry while playing in the cold water (just to remind you that we did this on the Saturday b
efore the first day of fall)!

This year we had 12 people on the pontoon, but majority ruled that next year we should rent the Fantasy, which holds 100 people!! This means we have 1 year to make 100 new friends, but for now we only have 12 and we still had a great time! We had great weather and good company...someone noticed our happy time on the boat and wanted to join in on the fun and ride a long! Say hello to our little friend to the right! :)

So I know what you're thinking...you're jealous of our boat outing! You should be and maybe just maybe you will be a part of our Fantasy ride, with the slide and all!

After riding around Lake Lanier (good thing we didn't find any dead people), we all met up at Everybody's in the Highlands. It was my first time there and I have to say that I am in love with their cheese bread!! Such a simple concept, bread and melted cheese!! Sooo goood!! You have to try it! Anyways, enough of my love proclamation to the cheese bread. We had dinner there and then went to Highland Tap afterwards, where Maggie, Thomas and I watched the Dawgs woop up on Bama!!! (such a good game by the way) A good end t
o a wonderful day! And a good end to a long and happy summer! At least I have next summer to look forward to as well as the 3rd Annual Birthday Boating Extravaganza!

As an official organizer of the Birthday Boat Extravaganza, I have to say I am very happy you were able to spend my birthday with me again this year. Indeed, I am a lucky gal to have such wonderful friends. Next year I hope to have 88 more...
