The Best Week Ever

It was a fun busy week for us starting last Monday when we went on a long bike ride in our neighborhood trails then a couple of concerts plus a festival. I really appreciate this warmer and drier weather when we could be outside more.

Tuesday, we went to see ColdPlay. They gave us these cool bracelets that were synchronized to the music. The lighting was amazing!

We were in a suite courtesy of my work but the location was on the side. The good thing was we were quite close to the stage compared to the seats on the other end.

The full effect of the lights, confetti, and smoke.


Snapshot of us

Wednesday we saw Esperanza Spalding at the Crystal Ballroom.

She was awesome! The band was great too. The venue left a lot to be desired. It was standing room only and I was not expecting that. Anyway, it was still fun.

Saturday evening was spent at the Eat Mobile Festival.

Banh Mi sandwich from Lardo.

Strawberry Balsamic and Espresso ice cream from Scoops.

We also participated in our community garage sale where we made some extra cash as we work towards simplifying our lifestyle.

I must say I was impressed at how the Canon G12 handled the low light images above. Way better than most point-and-shoot cameras.

What a week! I’d like to say the best is yet to come 🙂
