On Saturday Lynn's cousin got married and the big boys were the ring bearers. They were looking quite dapper. They did fine and the ceremony went off without a hitch. At night was the reception and it was time to party... for the kids. They had their own table (the kids table) and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They were left to their own devices. I didn't care. As long as they didn't bug us or cause trouble, they were free to do whatever they wanted. And I ended up taking more pictures of the (wild) kids than of the bride and groom.
That should be our slogan. Lynn and I are the ultimate good luck charms for major sporting teams that's not in Houston. It first began in 2013 when we attended a Seattle Seahawks game and they subsequently won the Super Bowl that season. Then this year we went to a Chicago Cubs game and they won the World Series! Great game. Great series. I'd like to think we were responsible for ending their 108 year drought.
As an impressionable kid, I grew up listening to the same music as my friends and family: synthpop/dance pop/electronic music. Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, New Order. And that was back in the early 90's. Flash forward 20 years later and Pet Shop Boys are still touring! I was lukewarm about this. Sure I loved them as a kid but today? Eh. But I've never seen them live and when will I ever get a chance again? So I dragged Lynn along on a random Wednesday night to see my old music idols.
If you squint hard enough, you can see Flume in the middle of the blinding lights. Let me preface this post by telling you the obvious, I'm old now. So my account of his concert is probably different from everyone else's experience. First of all, it started on 9 p.m. on Sunday, which means after the opening acts, Flume won't come on until way later (11:20 p.m. to be exact). Doesn't he know that's way past my bedtime?
Our last baby is a year old! I can't believe she's one. I can't believe we have a girl. I can't believe we have four kids. It's surreal. Elliot, where do I begin? She kinda walks now, if you're close enough to catch her. She loves music. One of her favorite songs is Cruel by Snakehips ft. Zayn. She's loud and demanding. She's loves getting into anything and everything, making a mess for others to clean up, i.e. don't leave her alone with a box of tissues. She's my one and only "big" girl.
It's too much soccer. The season just begun but I'm ready for it to end. I forget how dreadful it is to sit outside for hours in the scorching sun. Even if you bring your own shade (umbrella or tent), it's still hot as hell. Texas heat sucks. Anyway, this season is Tyson's first year to play! It's hilarious watching these tiny kids run around. It's still in that fun phase, i.e. there's nothing competitive about it.
