So here's the thing. I know I haven't written in a while and I'm not sure the actual reason why. It could be because I'm too lazy, or because I like reading other people's blogs rather than writing my own, or possibly because I feel like no one reads my blog anyway, so I don't see much of a point. Or of course, a combination of the three. Well, no matter the reason, even if no one reads this (maybe once we have a baby people will be more interested), I am going to continue on just for my sake. I want to be able to have these memories :) So without further adeu, here is a brief summary of our summer and fall thus far:
We went to California for a second time this summer and went to not one, but TWO Dodger games in one week and it was fabulous!
My Dad, my brother and me
My wonderful husband and his dad
We're not sweaty I promise, it was very misty that night
The beautiful Dodger Stadium as we walk away
We visited the tide pools in San Diego
My Dad really wanted to sit in the top deck. He thought it would be so much fun (which is the main reason we went to a second game). It actually has a pretty good view.
We took seriously nifty pictures through the binoculars. It gave this really neat shadow effect.
Our new camera takes these pretty amazing panoramic shots too.
Ok. Enough with the Dodger pictures already. This blog entry is now very disproportionate because of it. Sorry!
Bryan had a Birthday! This is his joyous face when he opened up the tickets for the Blink-182 concert! He was seriously ecstatic and so surprised, I love it!
Bryan with all of his gifts (cell phone unpictured, but included in the presents)
My brother, sister-in-law and nephew. (Johann also had a birthday a couple weeks after this, but I didn't take my camera. I really need to be better at that)
On the way to the Blink-182 concert!!!!
So we had didn't know that we were allowed to bring our camera into the concert until we were at the front of the line and it was too late :( We took pictures with our phone, but you can't really see anything at all.
So here's a sign of the concert. Also, Taking Back Sunday was there too and they were amazing in concert! And so was Blink-182, oh my goodness they were so good!!!!
About to head off to our first football game of the season! I wish I had an after photo though, what a disappointment it was. Oh well. Still fun :)
Our camera has some pretty good zoom too. (We could have had awesome pictures of Blink considering how ridiculously close we were to begin with, but what can you do?)
We also welcomed a new member to the family!!!!!!!
Ethan Mark was 8lbs 13oz and born the day before Bryan's birthday, September 3rd.
Ok, ok, ok. So he's not OUR baby, but our new nephew, born to Bryan's brother Daniel and his beautiful wife Sarah :)
Last picture, my other nephew Henry. We were playing The Beatles Rock Band for Johann's birthday. Henry watched Bryan put his guitar on and went over to the other guitar and did the exact same thing and tried to play it. It was SO CUTE!
Well, I hope you enjoyed our "brief" summary of our summer up till now. Tune in for more exciting news to come!
