Last Thursday, Mason and I found ourselves driving to Houston late at night for an impromptu road trip. Mason's good friend Chase's father died and the funeral was held on Friday in Mason's hometown. We weren't able to leave until really late on Thursday because Mase had tennis practice and then we set off on a long, not-so-fun adventure. We got pulled over, but luckily were only given a warning! Turns out the police officer grew up and went to school in the district that I currently teach at. After finding out that we had that in common we became best buds! :) Later, Mase and I stopped to get a late-night snack and the car in front of us in the drive-thru reversed and hit Mason's car! Luckily there was no damage since the car had a bike rack on the back of it! But this drive to Houston was becoming increasingly worse by the minute. Luckily there were no more incidents after that! And I guess also...luckily...the incidents turned out not that bad after all.
On Friday afternoon, we attended the funeral and then spent the rest of the evening (into the wee hours of the night) hanging out with Mason's friend Chase and all of their high school buddies. I'm glad that Mason has such a close-knit group of guy friends that he grew up with! They are always fun to hang out with... Never a dull moment for sure!Saturday morning I spent the ENTIRE day in the pool! I have not hung out in a pool for that long in quite some time! I just could not get enough of it for some reason! Usually I tend to stay away from chlorine, so that my blonde locks don't turn green, but this time I stayed in 'til my fingers were beyond prune looking! I guess it was my way of officially kicking off summer!
Anyway, we are back in Dallas now! I hope you all are enjoying the first day of summer!!
