Happy Labor Day Weekend

I can’t believe it is Labor Day already.  I guess that means the summer is officially coming to an end.  Well it was a pretty good summer here, but it was over soooo quick.  I love the fall, but winter not so much.  So I thought I would take a look back at what I did this summer.  Let’s start with June.

So who can forget June.  What a great month that was.  Our Matthew celebrated his birthday and went to China this year.

And who can forget the Blackhawks.  They won the Stanley Cup.  I know, it’s kind of bad what Patrick Kane has hanging over his head, and the entire Blackhawk’s organization but we should just wait and see.  I know I am very disappointed in him and what he did to himself and the team.  You would think that he would be smarter than that.  I guess making 12 million dollars a year can’t buy you manner’s and how to treat a lady.  Really stupid !!!!  But I still like the Blackhawk’s and hockey and am looking forward to the season.

Of course there was Father’s Day.  Matthew was still in China, so he didn’t make it to the White Sox Game.  Connor bought his dad tickets to the game.  Actually tickets for all 3 of us.  It was a blast, hot…

We went to Summerfest in Milwaukee.  Matthew use to live there when he danced on Milwaukee Ballet so he wanted to take a trip up there just to visit.  That was pretty cool.  We went to the same coffee shop we use to go too, Alterra.  They changed their name to Collectivo.  Their coffee is to die for and we went to the burger joint we use to eat at.

Two Cool Cats !!!

The best part of the trip was going to summerfest.  We got to see the Ides of March.  Saw Jim Peterik and got a picture with him.  He knows us because we kind of follow him around and go to his concerts a lot.  At least one a year.  He’s a great guy and a really talented musician/song writer.  Here is a youtube video of him performing, “Vehicle !!”  He is an awesome perfomer.  I think my favorite song by him is L.A. Goodbye.  I’ll put that one up too at the bottom of this picture set.

When we went to one of his concerts, he was singing a romantic song.  I was walking right by the stage to my seat and he was walking down to the audience singing and he came right up and kissed me in front of the whole crowd.  It was an amazing experience having Jim Peterik come down off stage and kiss me.  B O O M  I’m pretty sure the video below was the concert this happened at.  I know the someone got it on video and I’m going to find it and post it.  When I went looking for this song, I found this video.  I know that has to be somewhere.  The song was, “The Search is Over.”

Well that was just June, 2015.  I guess it started off as a pretty cool summer ❤  Have a great Labor Day weekend
