Wonderful Sunday.

Today was packed with fellowship, friends, and just all around good times. I went to church and was assigned nursery duty. So I got to play with the cute little kids all morning. After church got out, I got invited to go eat lunch with some friends, then we went and played pool with some other friends, then we ended up at the beach. I originally thought we were going to be playing volleyball at the beach, but I was wrong. I made my way onto the beach and the group of friends we were meeting there definitely had their bathing suits on and were ready to go get ripped out to sea. The water was really rough, and the rip currents were really bad because of Hurricane Gustav on the other coast. My pants had already gotten wet from dipping my feet in the water and then people were purposefully getting me went, and I knew there was no way I was going to be leaving the beach being dry from head to toe. So then my friends Abbie and Josh just dragged me into the water in all of my clothes. Fabulous! Yet it was one of the greatest things ever! So fun! My friend Abbie and I also went for a run on the beach. It felt good, because I haven't really run since April because it is way too hot here right now. But I know I will be paying for it tomorrow. I can already feel the pain in my legs. It is glorious, either way. After that we started making our way home. We took the scenic route, which is where the above picture was taken. I didn't have my camera with me for the rest of the festivities, so I did what I could. My friend David was running low on gas all day long, had already stopped to put gas in his car twice, I gave him the very little money I had on me, and we ended up running out. So we had to push the car out of the road into a shopping plaza, walk across the street to buy a gas can from the gas station, fill it, and then fill the car up. Then we were finally really on our way. It was a crazy, but fun day! I can't wait to hang out with all of my friends again!

Your day sounded better than mine. After singing at church I spent the day cleaning. Just have part of the kitchen left and then I'm done. So most of the day tomorrow should be relaxing.
