Our lives kinda get put on “hold” from the end of January through the beginning of April to allow our sons to participate in Indoor Percussion competitions. (I bragged about last year’s season here…) Most Saturdays were spent driving to schools in Mesa or Gilbert to watch them compete; then traveling back home in the wee hours of the morning.Their show this year was entitled “ELASTICTY” and featured the musicians playing their instruments while stretching elastic ribbons, snapping the bands, bouncing balls & a little trampolining. I made myself a couple shirts with this sentiment:
In March our school had the privilege of competing in WGI’s Western Championship in San Bernardino. The hubs took a couple days “off work” and we drove over for a fun weekend.
We met some friends for dinner at The Castaway.
Next morning after the boys’ first competition, we decided to brave traffic and head to Huntington Beach. We were rewarded by tons of traffic & this little blessing:But sun, sand & surf soothed the anxiety.And so did our dinner at Wahoo’s!We walked around town until dark, hoping traffic on the freeways would clear (no such luck!)
