The Rocket Summer

Favorite Omaha photos, originally uploaded by Flying Time Designs.

With both of my girls celebrating birthdays, these past two weeks have been crazy, but fun.

We took my oldest daughter & one of her friends to Omaha last Saturday to see "The Academy Is" (an alternative rock band). We couldn't have asked for a better day! Before the concert we shopped at the Old Market and while we were there (at Homer's Music), one of the opening bands, The Rocket Summer, came in and played a few songs. The lead singer, Bryce, was so nice! My daughter & her friend got his autograph and had their picture taken with him. Supper at Spaghetti Works was delicious and the weather was perfect for waiting in line out side to get into the concert.

Okay, just so I don't give the impression that things usually go so perfectly, here's what happened after the concert…

We got home at about 2:30 a.m. My other daughter and son had spent the night with my parents. Our dogs were supposed to be shut in their kennel for the night. However, somehow they got out. Our new little Boston is not completely house trained yet. I walked in the front door and stepped right in a pile of poop with my new shoes. So, I was up until after 3:00 steam-vaccing the carpet.

Here's what I found at the flea market in Lexington this year. It's always so much fun!
