1. Going “muddin’.”
I am fully aware of how lame it sounds to ride a four-wheeler through a field of mud, but I’ll vouch for it. The gooey mud creates the perfect slippery surface for doing donuts, and spraying your friends in the face while hosing them off outside is totally fun. Even if we only did it once, we’ve all done it.
2. Spending Fourth of July weekend at the lake.
Year after year, on the fourth of July, Alabamians flock to the nearest body of water for a weekend of grilling and relaxing. Whether it’s Smith Lake, Lake Martin, or any of our other fine swimming holes, we were on the water all day long lying in a floatie. We also thought it was really cool to ride sea-doo’s to the other side of the lake to meet up with our classmates, and occasionally, we would race.
