Reunited with Hope Friends!

Yet again, I was reunited with some more Hope friends this past weekend. Three of my friends who are working at Spring Hill Camp this summer came to visit. Also, two of my friends drove from Indiana. We were all reunited. We walked the streets of downtown Holland Saturday morning. Following a visit to Lemonjello’s with Froggy’s. We filled up on coffee and burgers before heading to the beach, which was filled with people.

Holland really livens up during the summer months. I had never seen so many people at the beach in Holland. The weather was absolutely beautiful. We soaked up some rays, swam in the water, and walked along the beach. After the beach, we dined at the Brewery downtown. The food tasted great and hit the spot after a long day. After dinner, we sat in the Pine Grove and talked for hours.

Once I arrived back at my house, my housemate and I decided to grab a midnight snack from Meijer. We devoured a container of ice cream and finished off a package of cookies. Thank goodness Meijer is only a short distance from campus.

I probably take at least five trips to Meijer during the summer. However, I almost always bike there. I really have enjoyed riding my bike lately. I never used to ride my bike in high school, but bring your bike to college!

Yesterday I was telling my cousin what she should bring to college. I’ll be sending out a blog post soon about what to pack and how I packed all of my things into my mom’s mini van. It was quite a challenge but ended well. 

I need to get back to work. I hope you all have great weeks! Here are some pictures from my recent bike rides:
