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.

I know, right? Ugh.

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!

Christy said...

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!
