This is a continuation of my Labor Day weekend stories. I told you all about our crazy, silly Friday so now on to Saturday. Saturday was just Audra, Holly Beth, and I. After lunch we headed to Barton's beach, a local man-made beach located in Perry Lakes Park. We intended to try swimming but decided just to play in the mud instead.
When we got bored with that we cleaned off as much as we could and made our way back to where we had sat our stuff down. We had a sheet to sit on but decided to just sit in the sand. We broke out the iPod and snacks, and just sat and talked for a while. While we were talking and goofing off a storm started to roll in but we decided to wait it out and only leave if there was lightning or it got really bad. The dark clouds surrounded us; we protected our things and got ready to run for it if we needed to. We each agreed that we love that peaceful and oh so powerful moment before a storm comes as we sat and watched the sheet of rain move through the trees, across the river, and right over our heads. We sat in the slightly cold rain for quite a while but the river started swelling and the rain was pouring so hard we decided it was best to head back to the car. We were completely drenched by the time we got there but it was so much fun, and I HATE getting wet!
When we got back to Judson we took some pictures and parted ways until dinner. We got dinner and watched movies for a few hours then decided we should finally make our Single Ladies music video we always talked about. We got into our outfits and headed to Tucker (the auditorium). We made up parts of a dance, decided what we were going to do, and shot the video. We had to shoot it three times because we had to figure out exactly what we wanted and for some reason my camera decided not to record one time. Once we were finally done and had watched it on my camera several times, each time laughing until it hurt, we headed to my room where we edited it just right and posted it to Facebook!
Yes, another successful Saturday!
