This weekend (along with fourth of July and our Anniversary) marks one of my favorite weekends of the summer. In Santa Barbara, although we "celebrate" summer starting on Memorial day, it doesn't really feel like summer consistently until now. "June Gloom" usually ends right around this weekend. And we have a parade.
This is the first year that we're actually able to go to the dang parade. Last year, I think I went home that weekend to work on wedding plans. The year before that, we completely missed the parade because we couldn't find a parking space (I don't know what we were thinking...).
It wasn't a huge bust, though, because we ended up running into friends randomly and went wine tasting.
You see, it was hot, and we went to a couple different places, and I'm a lightweight. So my judgement was slightly impaired.
I thought it would be funny to run up to Tim and jump on his back. To let him know that I was coming, I shouted "Head's up!!!!!", right as I was in midair.
I went sailing over him, and ended up skinning both elbows and both knees. I have scars on all four.
Tim's side of the story: "Who the heck calls out 'heads up' when they DON'T want someone to duck?!?" (he's got a point, but I'll never admit it to his face, haha).
Here's to never doing that again, and enjoying the parade. What are you planning on doing to enjoy the first official weekend of summer?
