Lots has happened...

It has been a while since I last wrote so I thought instead of a long drawn out story of everything I haven't been posting I would just post some pictures so you can get a quick snap shot of my life in the past month or ya go!
On August 1st we went to the Kenny Chesney concert in Seattle at the Qwest Field. It was so much fun. This is the second time that Adam and I have gone to this concert. This year Lady Antebellum opened (which we missed because it took us for dang ever to get out stupid wrist band to get to our seats because apparently a ticket isn't enough these days), then followed by Miranda Lambert (who in my opinion should have opened because I definitely wouldn't have missed missing her opening), then Montgomery Gentry, Sugarland and finally Kenny. It as a sweet show!! The only down fall was that this was the first weekend that my ankles started swelling. They were the size of the calves almost, at least it seemed to me. The funny thing is there was another pregnant lady sitting next to us and at one point in the concert we both had our feet up on the chairs in front of us.
These guys are awesome in concert if you every get the chance to see them.
Sugarland as always rocked the house! I love them!!
Kenny opened the show by flying over our heads suspended on a chair and it was so awesome seeing him so close. He always opens the new show in a new way and it is always fun to try and find where he is coming from when he starts to sing. It was a great show. He is such an awesome entertainer. I have to admit that the encore could have been better.

The 18th of August we took a family vacation to Lincoln City, OR. It was a lot of fun. It was the first time that my whole family, meaning my parents and all my siblings, were together since my wedding. It is the first time we have all been together for a vacation in who knows how long. It was so much fun. All the grandkids were there and we have a lot of fun spending time together and enjoying the coast. Here is a few photos of the best family vacation ever...
My little bro Andrew and our cute little niece Munchkin (I think that is what Erin calls her).
Emma and I playing a little game thru the sliding glass door. I would take her picture and show it to her and then she would make another funny face. I have like 5 other pics like this. She is hillarious!!

Believe it or not Emma really isn't riding the Sandrail, Adam took the picture at just the right time and it looks like she is having the ride of her life. This was probably the highlight of the trip for us. If you want a holy-crap-hold-on-for-dear-life feeling just ride the Sandrails in Florence. They were definitely the highlight of the trip for Adam, he loved it!!
These are only a few pictures from the trip. We also went whale watching and to the Oregon Aquarium plus a few trips to the beach playing in the water and flying kites. If you want to see more pics you'll have to check out other family member blogs or just wait till I scrapbook them and see them for yourself the next time you visit me. We had a great time and we were very excited to see Tara and Andy on the last day there even if it was for just a short time. I have to say, I have a hard time shopping with anyone else!
