Well the day finally arrived, a day I had been waiting for since the day I bought the tickets. Dave Matthews came to MN finally!~! What a wonderful group of family/friends that went along for the journey!! Love all of these people! and we all share a love for DMB!!!

Here we are on the way to the concert!!!

Us girls out at the ranch waiting for the main show! I have to say, none of us knew what to expect at the 10KLF as we have never attened the festival before, but it was amazing. Everyone was pretty tame and just loved the music that was being played on all stages! Stef and I had plans to see him together about 4 years ago, but Brad ended up being my date. So glad she was able to be there this time!!!!

Dave on stage! We ended up with great spots to stand during his concert!!! Closest any of us had been to the stage when seeing him. In the past at his concerts we are pretty close to the back and he looks like an ant! Not this time!!! In the future, we will be seeing him outdoors!

More Dave on Stage!!! Gotta love it! Here is Matty, Amber and myself during the concert! What a great night it was out there!

Sporting our new shirts we bought after the concert!!! Don't you just love our pose! hahah

Post concert Nachos at Zorbaz! Yumm!! Troy and Brad were great drivers that night! Dropped us off and picked us up and brought us to get food!! Such great sports!

This was one of the best concerts I have seen and can't wait to plan our next trip to see him outdoors next year!!! Haven't decided, Wisconsin or Colorado yet! Stay tuned.....

Birthday Party!!!

Well the birthday's came and went and the boys had a great Party! It's great having them in July and only 5 days apart. At least for now that's the nice part!!! We set up the slip n slide for the kids to run on this year instead of the pool. They loved it!!! It's great to have all our friends and family come to help celebrate with the kids and after next year, I think we will have to do 2 parties as I don't see Grant wanting a party with his brother much longer!!!

The kids table, where all the fun is at!!!!

Dylan getting ready to blow out his candles on his baseball themed cake, imagine that! haha

Grant posing by his Cars cake. He really wanted Nascar, but settled for this. Maybe next year I will get a creative gene in me and make him a cake! ha, we will see!

Loved the frosting on the cupcakes! I'm sure all the parents did as it got everywhere and wasn't easy to come off!

Dylan and Nora, the bestest of friends!! Love this picture!

One of Dylan's favorite presents he got, a race car helmet that makes noises and lets him talk in the microphone!

The slip n slide was a huge hit with all the kiddos!!!

So here's another year in the books! Hopefully I can get one more combined party in before they demand their own!!!!

4th of July Weekend

We had a great 4th at the lakes! Warm weather every day, doesn't happen often in Minnesota! The boys enjoy swimming and boating. The lake was so calm were on the boats until around 8pm!
John and Dylie posing for Jess!

The sun was too bright and it was a tad windy, so Jessi gave Dylan her sunglasses to wear and they wrapped a towel around him to keep warm, I just love those glasses!

Grant is such a fish and is getting to be such a great swimmer! As long as he has those wings on he goes everywhere on his own!

Here is Dylan and Grant with Jessi and Teresa ready to go out on the lake so Eric can go skiing!

After skiing!

Grant had to put on Eric's glasses too, aren't they cool! haha

Matt and Eric enjoying lake life! Boat, beer and sun! what more can you ask for!

We of course had to participate in the golf cart parade. This year was our best decorating year yet!! And still we got shut out of winning!! Look out people, next year they won't know what hit them!
