Heavy Metal = Good Old Fashioned Family Fun

So, here is part two of the family vacation we took at the end of May. The reason for the trip itself was the Iron Maiden Concert. This is not the first time we have seen them play, but it was definitely the best. They played all of their old stuff, which was awesome. Anthrax opened for them and they were rad. Though I have not been an Anthrax fan, I think you really like any band you see live. Wow, this kind of makes me feel like I am revealing my F-Chick side, though I must admit that the ripped Iron Maiden t-shirt I wore to the concert pretty much outed me. Heavy Metal concerts are how you imagined rock concerts to be when you were a little kid. None of the hopping up and down in place or sitting on a chair like the concerts of today. These are productions. Complete with smoke, fire, tight pants and giant skeletons. All of the moves you see people do with air guitars these guys do for real! People really sing the songs together and hold up lighters. I LOVE IT! The kids do too.

This was Rio's first concert and he loved it, though he only made it through a few songs before he passed out. Asleep, not drunk. He slept through almost the whole thing! The other kids have seen Iron Maiden before, and loved being able to sing all of the songs along with the rest of the fans.

...like the corner of my mind...

Here is a fun little game... leave a comment on my blog of a memory that you and I have had together. It doesn't matter if you've known me for a short time or a long time, anything that you remember! Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memeory about you. It is pretty funny to read the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. On your mark... get set... blog those memories!

Here is the big news at our house...a haircut. Exciting, I know. Maybel now has shorter hair than 2 of her brothers. I think it is so freakin' cute! I keep going to find her just so I can look at her hair. On the way home she asked if I thought it was short enough to do a mohawk...uh, no.
Most of us know that when you are doing a major haircut it can be scary if you don't find the right hairdresser. I called one person and she admitted that A-lines were not her strong point and I REALLY appreciated her honesty. So I ended up taking Maybel to Chelsea at the Azalea Salon in P.G. She did an AWESOME job! She really took her time to make sure it was perfect. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to make a drastic change in their hair.
