Graduation and Soul Food

 For Mike's Birthday, we took him to one of his favorite restaurants, "Lo Lo's Chicken and Waffles."  Evidently, Chicken and Waffles is considered to be "Soul Food" and, as you might expect, we were one of only 2 parties of Caucasian folks in the place.   We told the kids that it was good practice for Jamaica, because we will be a minority there, too.  The food was yummy, though.
Cameron's 5th grade graduation was very cute, and Megan even made the sacrifice to skip school that morning to attend.  Pretty wild to think the baby of our family is out of elementary

Busy Springtime

Life is busy around here. Cameron just finished 5th grade, and is heading to middle school. Ryan finished his Freshman year, and Megan finished her Junior year. Sometimes I forget to mention some of the fun things we do. Here is a quick recap of our Spring. We ran "Pat's Run" as a family. However, Ryan had a volleyball game that afternoon, and we had to cut the run short to make it to the game. Ryan is the only one of us who made it the whole 4.2 mile run, and into Sun Devil Stadium.

We also went, as a family, to the Kenny Chesney concert. Mike and Trish have seen Kenny several times, but it was a first for the kids. Uncle Kracker was one of the warm-up acts, and so was Billy Currington. A great concert out at the Jobing arena. (click on the pictures to see them larger).
