What a weekend folks. I don’t want to say it was the best weekend of the summer but i cant help it, it was the best weekend of the summer. Miss Erin Hanley needs a shout out for setting up the best tubing trip, maybe ever. But first we need to talk about friday night, the night O Neil. Thats right we went to see America’s greatest song writer and our hero Neil Diamond at the garden. I don’t really know how to explain it, Neil is a force of nature. he played a lot of his hits and generally made me laugh the entire show. Kate loved it and I think if the chance arose again we’d go. check out the clip below i feel as if it was a bit like our experience. Michele, Erin, and Allie joined us for the concert and well lets just say michele is a uber fan.
now as i started to say before saturday was the best!!!!! Erin put together a trip up state to cedar rapids where we got tubes and floated the day away down the delaware river. there were about 13 of us and a huge camping size beer cooler. yes the beer cooler had it’s own tube. I think the best part of the trip was the perfect storm of people. it was 13 people that 1. all loved beer, 2. really appreciated being out of the city and floating on a river. and 3. i really thought everyone was pretty funny which is always nice on a trip of any distance. All in all i think we floated for 4 hours and drank 100 beers. When we finally landed back at base camp we had dinner at the little restaurant there and got back on the bus to get to NYC at about 11. i was completely beat but it was worth it.
