Concert in the Park....Bressi Style

 Recently our neighborhood lost our social chair which put a abrupt ending to our neighborhood events.  We usually have 2 or 3 events during the summer and we hadn't had anything since Easter.  Once news broke that one of the wonderful moms in our neigborhood stepped up to take over you could say I was thrilled.  The events are always so much fun and one of the main reason why I love our community as much as I do.  

We were excited that the committee stepped up right away and put a date on the calendar for Concert in the Park.  It was one of the best events last year and were pretty bummed that we may be missing out on it.    We packed up our chairs, blankets, and beverages and headed up to the gazebo area in our neighborhood.    The band was very fun.  They played a bunch of cover songs from Lady Gaga to Guns and Roses.  There was a sponsored pizza and activities for the kids.

Always on the move!  Of course the kids love running around the gazebo/stage area where the band was set up.  At one point I caught Madden one second away from pulling the plug on all the music...literally.

Johnny was taking the concert very seriously at one point.

Jess and I.  Don't know what I would do without my most amazing neighbor and friend.  Photo creds given to Skylar.

Bubs letting us know the music was too loud for him.

Strike a Pose!

Bubbles were brought in to entertain the kids.  Which kept them occupied for bit, but it wasn't until some random older women showed up with a bucket and strings on a stick did the kids really get a kicked out of the bubbles.  

Dozens of kids lined up to take a turn to make a gigantic bubble with her.  Poor Madden was finally up when the lady got worn out and made somewhat of a run for it.  She left as quick as she showed up.

As if the Johnny's face doesn't explain it, after a bit more dancing the kids were starting to get tired and the concert was winding down, so we called it a night.  It was a great first event by our new social chair and her committee and I'm looking forward to more of them to come.

Ice Bucket Challenge

We were so proud of Skylar for accepting the challenge from her friend Sophie to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  
She took the ice bath like a champ!

More Ballpark Fun

The kids had such a good time at the last Padres game we decided to get tickets to another.  We have been having some wacky weather lately.  A ton of humidity and rain...yes...rain.  The day of the game it was pretty much raining on and off all day.  It rained the whole drive down to Petco Park, but right when we pulled into downtown the rain stopped.    

We got beach seats again to keep the kids entertained. The kids played in the sand and ate ball park goodies.  Skylar had a half a hot dog, a churro, some of Johnny's ice cream cone, a couple M&Ms, and a squeeze, and by the 7th inning she was complaining of a tummy ache and wanted to go home.  She said next time she wouldn't have so many special treats.  The game actually ended up going 12 innings so leaving at the 7th wasn't too bad.

Madden and JJ were too scared of the Petco mascot to take a picture with them.

Madden did a lot better this game when it came to not throwing sand at other kids.

Before the tummy ache.

Jumping on CJ's back.  Sugar high was just starting.
