Fourth Of July Recap
Friday, July 05, 2013
Most of you are enjoying a four day weekend, and I am so jealous! I’m back at work today and so anxious to get outside, even though it’s 98% humidity! Travis has off today though, so I’m hoping he wakes up with tons of energy and gets most of our moving to-do list done. Anyway, how was everyone’s Fourth of July!?
I’m going to re-cap mine quick. :)
On Wednesday night after work, I met up with Travis and some of his co-workers at the bar across from their work. We had a couple beers and then Travis sister and her boyfriend came out to join us.
On Thursday (I wrote Saturday at first… oops) I was extremely tired for some reason, but Travis woke me up at 8. I got a shower, and then fell asleep again! Travis was right back at it though, and woke me up because breakfast was done. And what happened after I ate breakfast? I fell back asleep! I did wake up though and get ready for the day then around 1pm. (oops) Once we were both ready, we headed out to Sheetz for some snack wraps and redbulls. Travis then set the GPS for a place 53 minutes away and we headed out. He wouldn’t tell me where we were going, except that it had a beach and off-road trails, also that neither of us have ever been there.
On the way there, I saw Beyonce the chicken! I wanted to get a picture WITH the chicken on the way back, but I was just soooo exhausted that I just did a drive-by. And of course, she lives outside of a bar.
We ended up at Pine Grove Furnace State Park in Gardners, PA. The furnace itself was pretty boring and it was way too hot and humid to walk the Appalachian trail, but we drove around for awhile, and took the truck on some trails. I am now convinced more than ever that I want a cabin one day, by the water.
Once we were done there, we were extremely thirsty and I was really tired again, so we stopped at Sheetz, again! And fueled up.
We then headed home, and followed the storm clouds the entire way.
Once we were home, it took everything in me to stay up to watch the Macy’s Fourth of July fireworks, but I did. I’m kind of sad that I didn’t get to see actual fireworks on the fourth, but I was just so exhausted (thankfully, I’m fine today. I was afraid that I was getting sick or something) and I will be seeing fireworks at our next camping trip in two weeks!
