Thursday Addison and I left for Lawrence for the Jupiter Sunrise show. He posted about the whole trip, which you can read here. But pretty much we left around 10, and when we got close, it started raining really hard and it was hard to see while he was driving. Then we missed our exit, so we had to turn around but we made it. Then we walked around Mass Street until we met up with Shannon, Nicole, Jenette, Chris, and Aaron. Then we went to The Finals and Jupiter Sunrise show. Only about 30 people came to the show, and after 3 songs into the Finals' set, the power started to not work. So Jupiter Sunrise wanted to play an acoustic set, so they invited everyone to come and sit on the stage with them while they played. After they played about 2 or 3 songs, the people in charge of the Granada appologized and said we had to leave because they were going to completley shut off the power. So everyone there helped load up and we all (everyone at the show and the bands) went to eat at Perkins. The drummer from JS, Chris, ate with us. He was a pretty rad cat. Then we all went back to Manhattan. I took a wrong turn and the trip took us about 30 minutes longer than it should have, but eh.
The next morning Addison left to go back to Garden, and Chris, Nette, Shannon, and I left for Colorado. We got here in the late evening, ate some dinner and hung out for a bit before everyone tuckered out.
Saturday we went to our Grandma and Grandpa's 55th wedding anniversary party/tea. It was really fun, and a very different experience. A lot of weird foods. It was a good time to see everyone again (ie, G-ma and G-pa, all our cousins, aunts, and uncles on that side). When the tea was over we decided to continue the festivities by going to Colorado National Speedway to watch the races. There were figure 8's, buses, and the main event was 100 laps. Definitly good times.
Today some of the family is coming over and we're going to BBQ. Right now we can't get wireless to work really well on Shannon's lappy so I can't post pics until that can happen. But I will. Don't fret.
