we spent the week surfing, tubing, paddle boarding, swimming, having girl talk on the back of the boat, playing card games (all of the card games!!) and laying on a big blow up island we named "tahiti village."
my two favorite memories were as follows: 1. one night, me, jordan, and jordan's aunt steph (who i could not be more obsessed with) were having a deep talk on the top of the house boat before bed. we talked about education, post-earthly life, how machines will run the world someday, time continuums, how dinosaurs fit into the plan of salvation, you know. the works. then we saw a shooting star. and then another one. and another! (we were informed later that there was supposed to be a meteor shower!) i think we counted a few dozen before we fell asleep, but there was one that literally lit up the entire sky. it was seriously, literally, madness. i thought maybe an asteroid was about to blow up the earth? anyway - it was beautiful, and definitely a top 5 earth moment. go planet!
2. we spent a few nights playing the "glow stick game" - a real creative name right? you play rock paper scissors as a group until you get one loser. then someone throws a glow stick as far as they can into the black water and the loser has to swim and get it. so like, basically i'm pretty sure the boys made it up as 5 year olds, but it was crazy fun! and it might sound like a little granny-ish that this was slightly "thrilling" for me - but jumping into the inky water at night makes you catch your breath.
we love you, LP!
