Ralph's World

We went to the Ralph's World Concert on Saturday. 

Here are the kids from LAST years concert.

Ralph puts on a great show for the kids and I (I mean the kids) really love seeing him LIVE! As we were walking to the Cedar Center we turned the corner... and there in the flesh was RALPH, just walking around. He is such a genuine guy -- he stopped high fived the kids and really took time to talk to them. He kept commenting on Briar's shirt (it said "ROCK" on it) and kept asking her if she was ready to ROCK! They just couldn't have been more star struck and excited!

Here they are THIS year!

Then before the show he took time again to just talk and hang out, sign cd's and his books.

Nikolai really is into guitar players, this bass player was great too!

I love this picture of Erik..... what a HAM!

After we had dinner at Bar Aboline -- in uptown (LOVE their guac and kids eat free)
Then to top it off... we had this beautiful sunset to look as we drove into Victoria. The sun was HUGE.

It was just an awesome day! 

Lately I have been feeling like I wish I could just stop time... the kids are growing SO FAST (my BABY is turning THREE this Friday), they are all at great ages (though every age has been great) and I feel like time is passing us by and we don't STOP to enjoy them (and each other) as much as we should. Life is so busy; work, school, worrying about bills, sports, activities, cooking, cleaning, paper work, running, running and more running... the list goes on and on. I just need to stop and enjoy them, not snap at them like I do too often. I need to cherish and remember the things that they love and the looks on their faces when we do something special like this concert, because they will remember -- that day just couldn't have gotten any better to them.
