Creed on Tour

In Family life, Music on July 6, 2010 at 4:33 pm

Here we are in the summer of 2010. Already seems to be a little hotter than normal. Three straight days of 90 degree weather, something that I don’t remember having in a long time. We along with the awesome beach ready weather comes the summer concerts, god I love summer.

I’ve already planned this summers vacations. Just recently finished one, taking a trip to the west side of Michigan and spending a few days at Michigan’s adventure. Not a bad park, didn’t ride much rides though, spent most of the day in the water park, which was awesome. But I’ve been geeked up for the next little break, a Creed Concert in late July. Yahoo!!!

I was lucky enough to be able to see them live back in the early 2000’s and they were pretty awesome, loved the show and have never been to a concert that had 20,000 people all singing in harmony, it really got you pumped up. So this time around their won’t be as many people, but neither less it should be exciting and I’m glad to be lucky enough to experience the creed show once again, plus I’m taking four other people who are new to the scene. Three of which have never been to any type of professional rock concert, which should be a fun sight, they are in for one hell of a show.

Okay I May Understand the Craze now that I remember

In Family life, Toys on May 24, 2010 at 4:35 pm

In an earlier post, I mention that there is a current craze going on about these animal shaped rubber bands bracelets most known as Silly Bands. These rubber band bracelets are the latest kid fad that has kids are going nuts over them. After looking at these rubber bands, I really didn’t understand the reason to why kids are going mad over them. BUT then I realized.

Camp Shap Silly Bands

I started to look through some of my old pictures of when I was a kid. And I immediately noticed a common theme, something started to show up in several pictures. I wasn’t necessarily the same object, but it was the same type of product. It was a Cardboard box. Why was this? It really became clear to me that my childhood best friend was boxes, I loved them. I played with them, made things with them, and of course wore them as shoes, the ole’ six pack shoes, boy those were the days, then in a blink of an eye, it hit me.

We as kids do not need those expensive toys to keep ups occupied or busy. Our imagination can run wild with the simplest things, and to me it doesn’t seem to be a surprise that Rubber Bands are making the kids go nuts everywhere. Children can find happiness with the littlest things no matter what that might be, I guess that is the beauty of children. So now it doesn’t surprise me to why kids, love these little animal shaped rubber bands bracelets!!!
