Rock the River

A while ago one of my friends and I went to Rock the River. Rock the River is put on by the Billy Graham Association.   Its a big concert with a bunch of big name bands and the gospel message is delivered between performances by Franklin Graham.  The tickets are dirt cheap to encourage young people to come and the whole thing is centered around the "bring a friend" concept.  It was so cool.  I didn't hear the final number but tons of teens came to Christ that night. Very exciting.

This is the view from the bleachers (It was held in a baseball stadium)


First up was Downhere. If you look to the left of the red-haired-dude you can see the lead singer guy.


Me and my friend Haley. This is an extremely awkward picture but at least we have one. :)


After Downhere they had Starfield but I didn't get a picture of them.

Then there was Hawk Nelson. I LOVED them.  They were so fun to watch.

Look above the brown-headed-chick to see their lead singer dude.  Is his name Hawk?  I don't know. But he is the middle of some weird dance move in the picture.


Then they had Skillet.  Their violinist rocked. They were so good.

Again, its a bad picture. You can click on the picture to make it bigger so you can actually see them.


Yay! Finally a picture that you can actually see the artist! Thank you flood lights, white dress, and night time!

This is Flyleaf


It was a pretty awesome day and we had  lot of fun even though it was SO cold. It rained off and on and was pretty windy. Near the end we got smart and elbowed our way into the middle of the crowd where it was nice and cozy. Ha ha. We are so smart. Despite the cold I actually got a sunburn on my face.  Remind me to pack sunblock for Africa, OK?

Summer recap

I can't believe summer is pretty much over!  I don't know about you guys but it has been a COLD one for us.  I guess that's what I get for living in Canada.  Here is a {very} brief summary of my summer...going backwards.

{August}--so far
I pretty much fell in love all over again with the girls I babysit.  I hadn't seen them for a few months and they have grown up so much.  The baby {below} is even walking now.  *sigh*


 {July}
We did a lot of family outings and caught tadpoles. 


{June}
We went on vacation to visit grandparent in Ontario.  Driving home {a solid 3 day drive} our van broke down...on July 4th morning...in Michigan.  Lovely combination if I do say so my self.  We spent a good portion of the morning at McDonalds playing in those indoor play places.
 


The End

Summer has been great. Lots of exciting life changing stuff

I hope all of you have had an awesome summer!

P.S.
I can't stop looking at my Africa pictures and have "found" a bunch of awesome ones.  That being said you might have to put up with me posting a bunch of those pictures.  I know, it will be hard to deal with all that cuteness, but you'll live
