Scary Island Meets the ER

It all started Friday evening.
Friday evening we converged at Fat Patty's (a local restaurant that has amazing food) and laid out our plans for Saturday: a day at the lake on a boat.

Once Saturday morning rolled around, we blew up our floats, grabbed the food and headed out onto our 14 person pontoon party boat for our 8 hour adventure. The morning started out nice, the weather was warm, the breeze was cool and the discussion of Teen Mom was had. After we decided that Farrah wasn't liked and Maci was the favorite. We ate lunch on the boat, did a little swimming (at least until the meniton of snakes) and did a little fishing.

And then the rain hit...
Once the thunder and lightening started, our fun day at the lake turned into, Scary Island Part 2 (since we experienced part 1 a few months ago). So our eight hour adventure turned into six but by this time everyone was either red from the sun or had to take a poop (basically just me)  so it was back to shore we went! It continued to rain off and on all night. 

This is where you could say the evening got a little interesting...
After getting the lake water off of us we celebrated Josh's belated Birthday. As LeAnna said, it was either the best or worst Birthday party she's ever attended. See what happened was Kristin and LeAnna had got him these really awesome shooting sparkler candles. Little did anyone know that they'd end up setting off the hotel fire alarm. Oops. 

Once we got the fire alarm situation under control we set back to watch a movie and enjoy a little champaign. Sounds pretty harmless right? Wrong! Long story short... Josh ended up slicing his finger open trying to get one of the corks out. He sliced it so deep that we ended up in the ER at midnight. 
The best part about the trip to the ER was the fact that there was all of us sitting in the lobby talking to each other via our iphones thru facebook status updates. Then we see this guy who will remain face less... 

This guy was a total creeper. First of all, the two signs (incase you can't read them) are for the bathroom and vending. They were side by side. This dude couldn't decide which one to do first. He stood there debating whether or not to get his snack or take a poop for at least a good 5 minutes. Ultimately he decided on the poop first but we're still not a 100% sure about whether he took a snack in with him. We also saw a Tom Selleck worthy stash but sadly no picture was taken of it. 

If you're wondering how Josh ended up....well he walked away with some parting gifts of stitches and the tools that were used to heal his wound. 
 
All in all, it was a fabulous weekend! Now it's back to my new found love of yoga and whispering, "Chaturanga" as I do the moves during class.

I got excited thinking about a day at the lake....

What a crazy adventure! Aside from any pain involved, he (and everyone) can at least chalk this one up as a birthday to remember!

I like Farrah, but the way she talks makes her sound like such a meany. Maci I do like though. I think Amber is my least favorite, that chick is kind of crazy. haha, I love that you set the smoke alarm off!

I love that you have a new found love of yoga! :) I wish you lived near me so we could go to a class.

Sounds like a great time up until the emergency room thing, but at least poop snacker kept things interesting. I hope Josh heals up fast!!
