Weekend Fun

We had a such fun weekend visiting with friends and taking Connor on a very special date. Connor earned this special date by completing 320 kumon worksheets over the winter break. So proud of you Connor.

One of my goals for the year is to introduce Connor to the wonderful experience that is live music. It's one of my favorite things in the world. Dancing and signing along with the crowd to a live band is just about the most fun you can have!!! And between Chris and I we have a pretty diverse selection of favorites from Sugarcult to Jack Johnson to Justin Timberlake to Zac Brown to Ella Fitzgerald to all that 80's rock that Chris loves.

So Saturday night we brought Connor to a special dinner are the Scarlett Begonia (where when they served me the burger I ordered they forgot the BURGER HA!) it was quickly resolved but total comedy.
Then we attended the Kids Helping Kids fundraiser at the beautiful and historic Granada Theatre. It was the perfect mix of wonderful musical performances and fundraising and educating on a good cause. We were thrilled to be supporting such a great cause empowering this group of teenagers who are making the world a better place for less fortunate kids. For more info click here
They raised almost $300,000 . . . what an amazing group of kids.
Now for the concert!!!! The opening band was Tim Lopez and his new band. They did a nice job. But when Andy Grammer took the stage the real fun began! I am now a huge fan. I loved all the songs . . . positive happy music with a fun funky beat! If you don't know who Andy Grammer is check him out on youtube.

Then Sunday we had the pleasure of spending the evening with our old friends the Ferrones.
It was a love time. They kids had a blast, Chris made delicious fish tacos and then we were spoiled with super yummy cupcakes from CrushCakes brought by the Ferrones. A great end to a perfect weekend.

I did also attend a very special baby shower but that will be another post since I don't have any pictures yet.
