buffalo bill days '11 is over and done, and I'm super relieved. I'm not a teenager (underage drinking is naughty, yes) anymore and just one night of bb days was enough for this mama. my good friend whitney attempted her first bb days and she, too, had enough with the first night.
we went to town friday night and met up with holly and some other friends. the bars, beer tent, streets, and sidewalks were crowded with people. we drank beer and took shots of a new drink called kinky, and I finally got to try my beloved UV cake. things got a little crazy over the next few hours and we ended up only getting 3 hours of sleep before having to wake up and go tubing on the river. everyone else had the same idea because the river was completely colored with tubes, it was freaking packed. I had 3 beers and that was more than enough, I pretty much pumped water down my mouth the rest of the trip. gahhhh. we stopped at two rivers bridge, along with everyone else on the river. a lot of this went on: bridge jumping, mud fights and floating around in our tubes watching crazy drunk people climb like monkeys up to the very top of the bridge... and then jump. after noticing how red whitney and I were getting (3 hours of sleep = forgetting sunscreen) we decided to leave a few friends behind at two rivers and head on down the river to our stop. whitney made a new friend, patrick, the night before so he decided to jump on our made-for-2-not-3-tube and float with us. he was drunk, entertaining and whitney enjoyed pulling his shorts down in front of other tubers. so many images I would love to forget :/
besides feeling totally sleep deprived, we were starving. we picked up pizza, breadsticks and ice cream from a little restaurant called the creamery and brought it back to my parent's house. kingston and my mom were in the pool when we got there, and I'm pretty sure I sprinted right over to kingston and held him for an hour or, you know, however long he let me before squirming away. I like to make plans and hang out with my friends just like any other mama who needs some time to herself, but I really really miss that little pumpkin while I'm away. kingston can now say "whitney" and she taught him to "pound it" with his little fist. this little guy is so stinkin' smart with all the words and names he can say. *proud mama*
whit and I got all dolled up to go out again saturday night but only made it about 2 hours before heading home to pass out for the night. we didn't even have a drop to drink that night. needless to say, next year we are going to take it easy on the first night out, drink plenty of h2o and sleeeeep. I failed at taking pictures BUT I did get a few random ones from the beginning of friday night. blah. oh and, I'm the blondie, holly is the brunette in glasses, and I'm sure you can all guess who my crazy friend whitney is.
