All State

This weekend was all about my boy. I already told you where we were and why we were there, so, how about telling you what we did?




I took him out for pizza, 'cause that's what you do with boys.




He made a little music too.




We had breakfast at a cereal bar. Seriously. It was so cool!




This is the delicious mess he ordered up.



Now, I am definitely not a city girl. I like taking pictures of trees and, well, natural things. I also didn't have much time to explore and think about picture-taking. But still, I had my camera everywhere and saw some things that I liked.





Then I found something a little bit more to my picture-taking liking.



I ran into my junior high band director.



This man so greatly influenced my musical life. He made sure I went to see the Nutcracker so I could see a real orchestra. He's the one that put a bassoon in my hand. He taught both of my brothers and myself. He even played a song for my wedding. It was such a pleasure to introduce him to my son, who plays the same instrument he does, and to tell him that I'm a music teacher now.

But most of all, there was a concert. An awesome concert. And my boy was in it.

Hooray, Drew!!

P.S. It's kinda freaking me out that he can now fit into one of Joe's jackets. Wow.

This post brought another contemplative smile to my face.

Andrew looks so awesomely cute...and so does our junior high band director. What a great guy he is and what a wonderful friend to all of us. (Plus he has a great sister and the best flan-baking mother I have ever met)

It sounds like an amazing weekend.

And I love Drew's hair...really.

And I'm slightly envious of the cereal bar :)

I love that you captured those adorable birds on the bench. The other pictures are great too...of course...but I squelched a little embarrassing squeal with that one. :)

That Drew. You have every right to be proud. Enjoy!

Mary, you can only imagine, then, the sort of noises I made when I saw those birds in real life :) It's a wonder they stayed on the bench long enough for me to turn the camera on!
