On Our Way

It's been a few days since I've written but I've been busy getting things ready for our vacation. We leave tomorrow for a week at the beach...gulf shores, AL. Believe it or not, the Alabama gulf coast has beautiful beaches and the drive is shorter than going to Florida. I'm all for shorter drives.



Our car is packed and we'll be leaving at about 5:30 a.m. caravaning with our friends, the Enochses.

Last night Jim and I went to see The Fray in concert. We saw them at an outdoor venue called Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion (for you Michigan people it's exactly like Pine Knob). It was about 98 degrees here last night and not exactly perfect weather for an outdoor concert. This was the first time I've been to the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion and I don't think I'll ever see another concert there in the summer. The music was awesome but i was too hot and sweaty to enjoy it. Except for when they did the cover of Shakira's Hips Don't Lie. It was awesome! I tried to find a clip from our concert on youtube. It wasn't there but this one was. It seemed so spontaneous at our concert...like they'd never done it before...one search of youtube and I discovered I was very wrong. Doesn't matter. I enjoyed it all the same.




Talk to you from the beach.

That's pretty cool that they played hips don't lie... they didn't do that at the concert I went to, but they did play a song that they had written ealier that day. Too bad it was so hot! Have fun on vacation!

But I bet you did get a contact high just walking by the lawn, tell the truth! Yeah, Woodlands Pavillion weather is good October - March. Whatta shame. I am thinking we should all think of a reason to go sometime in that timeframe... I haven't been in forever.
