Let me explain...
We ate some ridiculously good food.
Our group of 7 all ordered a plethora of eats, from kabobs to desserts, basil strawberry tea, and this Vietnamese slaw, which I devoured in about 5 seconds. Amazing.
There was shade everywhere.
And for such a hot day in the intense sun, these shade canopies let us stay just a little bit longer. If you got lucky, you found a canopy with a built in mister. Yes.
I sat at this tent for 2 hours and learned so much: you don't yell "get it girl", you say "oooooooooh" when someone does something cool. I danced in my seat more than I probably should've. The dancers started laughing during their performances. You should play it cool, because these kids were cool. I had a crush on the boy in the front, what a cutie. And lastly, I want to take a break dancing class. Stat.
We got to row on the dragon boats!
Our group asked at the beginning of the day if we could go out and race on the boats. The volunteer said teams have been formed for months and that everything is set. So sad.
My friend Ashley saw this group of concerned looking people in matching T-shirts and asked if everything was okay. Wellllllll, half their team didn't show up! So we jumped up and down and said WE CAN ROW!. So, we threw on extra large t-shirts, grabbed a paddle, and went out on the boat.
The team taught us their chant, how to row, where to sit, and before we knew it, we were racing down the lake. We lost, but who cares, we were on a boat!
See, best day ever.
