This man R-O-C-K-S!!!
Oh MY!! The Phil Vassar concert I mentioned I was going to in a post earlier this week ended up being on the top of my list for concerts this year!! He was sooo amazing. He rocked the house! It rained and then poured....and then it rained some more. And truthfully it just added another level of excitement to the already exciting atmosphere. Then the sun came out and the party continued and then he remained around for another 45 minutes to shake hands and sign autographs. The girls had their hands autographed, their cell phones autographed, and I was able to get my ticket stub signed. He loves what he does and is just thankful for being able to do it!! I must mention that my middle daughter was the only one out of the six of us that went that didn't have a great day. She was so annoyed of the rain, and I was just the opposite. I looked at her and said, "either embrace it or let it ruin your day, the choice is yours." I think it ruined her day. Just not "perfect" enough for her. She has gotten alot better over time, but, man....she can be a prune!!!
Today we had a great day at a pool party for the soccer team. It was one of those days when time just flies by and the day is over. It was great.
Tomorrow is going to be a downtime morning and we will see what the rest of the day brings.
We have a new member of our family.....stay tuned!

Our Photo of the Day.....Yesterday.....
We went to the butterfly zoo in Tiverton, RI yesterday and we took some really amazing photos. I gave each of the girls the camera for a few minutes to see what they could come up with through the lens. This photo was my favorite for the day. If you look in the center you can see the zebra butterfly. Just black and white and as beautiful as ever. The yellow flower has water drops on it and I really loved how the closer greens and pink kalanchoe are a bit blurred and the back ground is so sharp. The bright blue backdrop is so awesome too.
My blog is close to 3000 hits, such a milestone!! LOL. Lots of viewers and so few comments. Hummm....I'll get over it....some day.........Happy weekend all!

Korie goes to Africa!
My cousin Korie is the one holding the soccer ball. The best thing about this picture is that she is wearing a skirt. My cousin Korie dosen't normally wear skirts. So my family and I have really gotten a chuckle out of this. The funniest thing of all is that when she was a young child her mother dressed her in custom made clothing with lots of ruffles, plantoons, matching hats..the whole nine yards!!!! So, I believe for her not to wear skirts at this point in her life is because her mother completley scared her for life in all those fancy outfits as a child!! LOL. Anyhow, she is one of my youngest cousins and I am so weirdly emotional about her going into the Peace Corps. Its a big wad of proudness, excitement, jealously, scaredness..... but mostly I am proud of her for following her dreams. Here is her blog if you would like to follow along on her journey. Also, for all you insane card makers, feel free to send her a card with encouraging words. Its a long way from home!!

No matter what I tried to do today with the computer I had trouble. GRRR.....
Anyhow, how is everyone???
No photo's today due to these problems. Please view the slideshow which I have added to my sidebar. On Sunday we had an excellent "family" day with the girls. We went to Indian Ranch in Webster Mass. and saw Eric Church and Billy Currington. They were both great, but the day overall was really perfect. The weather couldn't be any better either. This coming sunday we are heading back and are going to see Phil Vasser, who was amazing when we saw him a few months ago at a different venue. I hope to post pictures soon.
For those of you who know how I like "bad boys" visit this site and listen to "all summer long". I hope it makes you have a happy beat to your heart.
p.s. dosen't anyone leave comments anymore??????????
