This was the night we had all had been waiting for, the celebration of the summer. The time had finally arrived for our highly anticipated 10th year birthday party. Michelle and I had been planning all summer long for our last, but biggest event yet. Needless to say, we were up for the challenge of creating the funnest birthday party any of our guests had ever seen. And that, we did.
Over 200 party people showed up to ride, relax, and rock the night away to our awesome DJ, Danny. The cable spun boarders, wakes skaters, knee boarders, and even tubes that day! The lazy river was a total hit. The word, “lazy”, however, was a little deceiving. I must admit that I did have to brace myself for the wild n' wet ride around the corners. Unfortunately I did get kicked off once...or twice.(yes, I might have tried to stand on the tube like a boarder). But, it was the most fun I had had all summer. Truly, a highlight.
Our homemade slip n slide was our second greatest hit, especially for the kids. I snapped a few shots of the youngins flying down it at a hundred,+ miles per hour. At my attempt, I barely made it half way at less than a mile per hour. Apparently I was “too big” to catch the current. Oh well, I still got some hilarious photos of the kids.
I wanted to send out a special thank you to DJ Danny. He kept the music family friendly, but still fun. Later on, I really enjoyed getting down to the dubstep and trap beats. He has some awesome taste in music! His setup right next to the bar really helped get the party bumpin' and our $10 buckets of beer flowin'. Thank you for the show, Danny!
As the night came to a close, a bittersweet vibe filled the air around me. I couldn't have asked for a better finale to end an epic summer with the KC Watersports family. A summer internship full of lakeage, new friendships, adventure, and riding. It truly doesn't get much better than that. Not only is life better at the lake, but so are internships.
Live to ride & ride to live,
