Various Happenings

Our lives are generally not this exciting, but the past few days have been so fun!  This weekend, Jamie and I headed over to Carrollton to celebrate Hutton & Collier's 4th birthday!  These are my precious nieces and the youngest of the Green brood.  Because their birthdays fall in the middle of college football season, for the past four years they have had the same party.  Mom & Dad rent a moonwalk, the kids jump and play all day, and the parents watch football!  Of course my sister, Jennifer, does her best to add variations so that they don't feel trumped, so the theme this year was a princess/pirate party with face painting, a "go fish" game, yummy snacks, and of course - the giant moonwalk in the shape of a pink princess castle. 

It was a perfect Saturday!  I was deemed head photographer, so I didn't get many pictures with my own camera, but here are the few I came home with....

Luke and Courtney are the friends we visited in California.  As I mentioned before, they are great friends and incredibly generous.  For our wedding gift, they gave us tickets to see U2!!!! 

The show was last night, and beyond incredible.  Such talent, amazing graphics, phenomenal lighting, and great music.  Plus, we had amaaaaazing seats!  It was a night we won't ever forget!
