Weekend Wrap Up

Another good weekend around here.  Friday night, we went to a Travis Tritt concert at Discovery Park.  I was able to get free tickets from work.  A little Travis Tritt background for you...Darrin does not like country music.  At least he says he doesn't....even though he knows the words to a lot of country songs some how...and he sings along a lot like someone would do if they actually liked country music.  But even with all that, he admittedly loves Travis Tritt.  He listens to the Travis Tritt Pandora station almost every morning.  It's very strange that he, of all people, does that, but he does.  So, imagine my elation when I found out that Travis Tritt was coming to Discovery Park AND the tickets were free. 

Friday was the day.  Reagan came over to watch Miles and we went out...

It was a casual concert, outside on the lawn of Discovery Park, which is in the background below...

We ran into some of Miles' teachers & had to take a picture to show him.  They didn't know any Travis Tritt songs, but came anyway b/c they also scored free tickets.  Corey Smith opened up for Travis Tritt & they were way more excited about him.  On the flip side, I didn't know any Corey Smith songs.  Can you say generation gap?

We met some of my work friends there...

Pretty clouds rolled in first, and then it poured a cold, hard rain.  We stayed b/c he hadn't really sung many of his popular songs & we were just sure he was going to.


He only sang about four more songs and called it a night.  It was a fun night, but someone needs to tell him to stick to all the songs that made him famous.  No one wants to hear a song off his "latest" album, whenever that was, or the only instrumental song he's ever written.  Just sing "Anymore" and "Help Me Hold On" and "T-R-O-U-B-L-E" please.   

Saturday, we went swimming at the country club and then had these guys over for ribs and cards.  Very fun night & so many laughs. The kind of laughs that add years to your life.

Sunday was Darrin's mom's birthday.  She's visiting Darrin's brother & his wife in South Carolina, awaiting the arrival of their baby boy, Rowan.  We sent Granny a happy birthday message...

After church, Darrin played golf & then we met him at the country club to swim for the afternoon.  Even with Darrin's eyes closed, it's still cute...

I love this picture b/c Miles' eyes are closed.  He looks so relaxed.

He made a lot of progress swimming this weekend.  He's now able to jump off the driving board and swim to the side without any help.  We don't even have to be in the pool.  He can also swim from one side of the deep end to the other.  We are so proud of him.  I think it's so important for kids to learn to be great swimmers as early as possible. 

Well friends, it's one of my favorite times of the week.  It's time to watch the Bachelorette.  Like I told Darrin, it's my mental vacation for two hours and I couldn't be happier about it.  Good night!
