Topher's First Day of School - 2012

Welcome to the first day of school.  Boy, summer really goes by too fast.  This is the first year Topher had to start without Tim.  He was really bummed!
That's ok, he'll get to make up for it.  Topher chose a long sleeved hoodie for the first day.  Keep in mind, it was high 90s that day.  When I came home, he had changed out of it and into a t-shirt.  Silly boy!
He said he had a good day and he likes his teacher.  I can't believe I only have one left in elementary!  Have a good year, Topher!

Father's Day 2012

Happy Father's Day!!!  We had a great weekend.  Alex had just left for Van's Warped Tour so he isn't in the pics.  Too bad! :(
 Here are Tim, Steve, Terry, Topher and Brendon.  We had a nice BBQ with the Morleys on the Saturday before.
 After the BBQ, we went to see my dad.  Topher, Jay, Jaylene, and Tim.
On Sunday, we went out to dinner with Grandpa and Grandma.  Betty, Karen, Clyde, Jaylene, Tim, and Topher.  Nice day with great people.  I love you all!  Happy Father's Day!

Chelsea Grin on the Van's Warped Tour: First Stop - Home Town! Salt Lake City, Utah!

Well, well, well.  I finally got to go to my first Chelsea Grin concert.  I will NEVER miss another one again!  So proud of my boys! Here are two of the proud moms.  Merit (Jacob's mom) and me!
 Lines for autographs.  It never got shorter!


 I love this pic.  Look at these boys faces!  They are in awe.... of my son!

 On stage!







 Oops, autographs got put in with the stage pics!



 Fans.  So when Chelsea Grin goes onstage, they flip everyone off.  Hence all of the pics with fans and the middle finger.  Gotta love 'em :)
So surreal to see all of their success.  As a mom it scares the hell out of me because I know how hard this life can be and I know what kind of bottom feeders are out there.  But they have worked SO hard, I really hope they go all the way.  Love you boys.  Be careful out there, remember who loves you the most and be true to yourselves!
