Last weekend I went to the RUSH Concert.  My sister had purchased tickets a while back and her and her husband were suppose to attend.  But he decided not to go since he had to be up at 3:30am to catch the fishing boat him and his son were going out on for Father's Day.  So.....I went in his place.  It was a very interesting concert.  In the day I listened to Rush but it was never my favorite band.  I could not believe how many more guys were at this concert than women.  Some of these guys are so into this band it was kinda funny watching them dancing, playing their air guitars and acting so crazy.  I would say the majority of people at this concert were in their late 40's to 60's!  Not to say there weren't the young crowd and those that were there with grandpa, dad and kids.  It turned out to be a pretty good concert and the people did not get rowdy although there was a lot of drinking and "smoking" going on around us.  On one side of us we had a man who appeared to be in his 50's with his son who was probably a teenager.  This guy was having a fit because people about three rows in front of us stood up and were dancing; he kept yelling "Sit Down", my sister and I were laughing because there was no way they could even hear him.  So then he took his sons water bottle and threw it at the people; we thought "oh no" a fight.  The guy he hit in the head turned around and waved his cane in the air and the people finally sat down.  Rush put on a good show with music, lights and video.  Thanks sis for taking me to a concert to see a band I would of never bought tickets to - I had a fun time!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.  My son and husband went golfing this morning and then this afternoon we will have a BBQ and hopefully it will be warm enough to take a dip in the pool.  Whatever the day holds for you I hope all you dads are having a great day!

Universal Studios that is.  This past weekend we headed up North to spend the day at Universal Studios.  We left early to ensure we arrived when the gates opened up.  The morning was dreary, the sky was gray and a heavy mist was in the air.  The last time we visited Universal Studios in California was when my son was about 4 or 5; he was so freaked out by the tram ride that he NEVER wanted to go back.  We did visit Universal Studios in Florida about 4 years ago and had a blast but we got rained on.  Things have changed since the last time we visited.
This is where we ate.  They accommodated my sons gluten free diet.
While we were waiting for my sister and her family to show up we decided to go on the Simpson's ride. What a blast; my husband and son got a kick out of this ride.
Like father; like son.  A fun store with all types of Simpson's stuff.  You can even purchase a very large doughnut!

Could not get anyone to go over and get their photo taken with the Simpson family so I might just have to photo shop a few into the picture!

They had an animal show but most the animals did not do as they were suppose to.  This guy did a good job.
 My sons got a kick out of talking with Groucho Marx.  He stood there for a while with him. He is even smiling in his photo!
This is my niece with Chuckie.......this was pretty creepy.....It is the House of Horrors....Not for those scared of the dark.  It really creeped me out!  The sun finally came out and the day was enjoyable; we all had a great time.  I was a little disappointed as the price of tickets has gone way up and alot of the things I really enjoyed looking at were no longer there.  It appeared they are working on part of the park as it was blocked off so maybe something good is in the works.  With the price of the ticket we did get a pass that is good for the entire year so I guess it was not too bad.

Another Year Has Passed

Today is my Birthday.  My son and dear husband gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers, some gift cards for shopping and a bag full of fun stuff.  Later there will be a yummy BBQ dinner.  My husband and son kept asking me where I wanted to go for my birthday........I just wanted to have a relaxing day at home.  And I might sneak out to do some shopping!  We will have a combined family party in a few weeks to celebrate my birthday, my sisters birthday, my husbands birthday and my sons 15th birthday.  How old am I??  Well....that is a little secret I will keep to myself for now. Hope you are all having a relaxing weekend.
