I was talking to one of my co-workers about my summer and they said, "It really did look like so much fun, like you were having a party ever day." Camp (and YL) absolutely feels like that-- every single day is a celebration of everything. We get pumped about the smallest things, wear jerseys over staff polos, use chopsticks on a regular Tuesday, wake up early to jump in the pool, have donuts at midnight and write notes to people on rocks. Life is a party.
But summer only lasts for 10 weeks. And I refuse to let the other 42 weeks of the year be boring. That's just a waste. So here's what we're going to do: live every day like a party. It doesn't matter if we're at camp or not.
Today that looked like saying, "yes!" to the Indiana State Fair on $2 Tuesday. I invited Kathleen, David, Emily, Eric and baby Jojo and we embraced one of the Hoosier state's greatest treasures. We skipped the rides and ate our way through the fair.
Highlights of the fair included (but are not limited to):
1. Watching giant horses pull a huge sled of cinder blocks
2. Corn on the Cob
3. Fried Reece's
5. Lemon Shake Up (the greatest money making scheme in the history of the world)
6. Watching Michael Phelps win the 200 fly while a crowd of fair-goers cheered him on
7. Mac and Cheese Grilled Cheese
Today was a party. Tomorrow can be too. Let's get out there and make it happen.
