Labor Day Weekend

Yes, I am a little behind on my blogging lately because I am just now getting to sharing what we did on Labor Day weekend. I am truly trying to keep up with my blogging, but it gets hard to do when I have to work, feed eight mouths, and clean up after eight beings on a daily basis. I hope to catch up and get on track soon. Our Labor day weekend started early. I am not sure how that works, but its just what happened around these parts. We had company a few days before Labor Day weekend and that's when the fun began! There was lots of cooking, socializing, and music to go around. On Sunday (September 2nd) we went to a Keith Urban concert. Before the concert we hit the largest indoor arcade in the world (Funspot). Damien and Amar'e loved it. It was super busy and it was hard to get around being that busy, so we only stayed for about half an hour. We had been planning this since February and it was part of Damien's birthday gift. I love love love concerts and so does Andrew. It was Amar'e first concert out of utero, and Damien's second concert. Andrew and I went to a Sheryl Crow concert when I was about three months pregnant with Amar'e. We had a couple extra tickets to the Keith Urban show, and we invited Ryan and Stacie to come along and we had such a great time. I am shocked at how good Amar'e did. I wasn't sure what to expect out of her during a concert with people yelling, loud music. and being out of her element, but it went great! Dave Nail opened up for Keith and Amar'e clapped and danced all through his performance. When Keith came on Amar'e fell asleep on my back, and didn't wake until we got home at 1:00 a.m. I was amazed that she could sleep through such a jamming show! The next day we had more company that brought a little friend for Amar'e to play with. Amar'e doesn't get to play with little ones her age alot so this was an extra special treat.

Cooking dinner is very dangerous. This is the result of a finger injury. Ouch!

 Home grown goodness. These are carrots grown in our garden. They are a little funky looking.
 Amar'e hanging with Two. Yes we call him Two. Long story....
