Family Fun....

So last night my family and I had an interesting yet enjoyable outing. It was very interesting in many ways. First we all met at Ruby Tuesday (for those who dont know this is a restaurant) on Southside. I was really excited because my whole family and their significant "others" haven’t been together in a while. So we ate dinner and enjoyed good fellowship and conversations that have been missed. Here are pictures of us at dinner.

Lindsey and Shaffer(my brother)

Joel and Leslie(my sister)

Lindsey and Leslie

Daniel and I

My Mom(Debra) and Dad(Kyle)

Then the fun really began.....Daniel, my Mom, and I all came from work so we had our own cars, and My dad, Shaffer, his girlfriend Lindsey, Leslie and her boyfriend Joel all pilled into my Grandmothers Lexus SUV because my family no longer had an SUV since someone hit it a couple of months ago and totaled it. You might be wandering why i am telling you all of this...because when my mom bought the Eric Clapton tickets she only bought 1 parking pass--thinking that we would still have the Expedition. So we all had to pill into this 5 passenger Lexus where my mom and dad sat comfortably in the front and the "kids" meaning us sat in a crammed back seat. It wasn’t that bad until my dad began to test out the breaks to see how well they really would work....this was on purpose by the way. It was somewhat awkward as I was facing Lindsey with Daniel on my left and Joel under my right leg for we were so packed in. Anyways we arrived at the concert finally found our seats with plenty of time left to spare. We listened to the guy that came on before Eric and he was good, although my attention span is very limited when there are crowds around. It drives Daniel crazy because I am a huge people watcher! I was somewhat uncomfortable because everyone and when I say everyone I mean everyone was drinking around us and spilling there beer everywhere. That part wasn’t so bad..infact this is horrible, but I could not help but laugh as people tripped or stumbled down the stairs...that horrible I know but it was pretty entertaining. Anyways Eric Clapton definitely has a wide range of fans...many older people still thinking that they are 20. The music was great and Daniel had a smile on his face every time I looked at him because he loves Eric Clapton. That makes me happy because he is adorable when he smiles. When the concert was over we made our way through the packed crowd..getting separated a couple times and encountering a stink bomb along the way, pilled back in the car and we were on our way home. It was an adventure!
