Monday Sunday Salon

Whew! What a busy weekend we had! Actually, it started on Wednesday with a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers concert (their old stuff takes me right back to college!). Friday night we headed downtown to the Summer Arts Festival where we saw some really interesting stuff but walked away empty handed. With so many choices, we just could not make a choice!

We also got to listen to a couple of bands for free, including a really great blues band, while enjoying some kettlecorn and cold beverages. It would have been so much more enjoyable had it not been sooooo hot!

Saturday night we headed out for dinner with three other couples. All of the guys have known each other since middle school so they spend a lot of time rehashing the old days. The wives have known each other since college but we tend to focus more on things that have happened in the past year! Always fun to spend time with people you know so well.

Sunday we headed off to my mom's hometown for a family reunion on her dad's side of the family. Came home, changed, grabbed more food and a bottle of wine and headed off to the annual Shakespeare on the Green festival to watch a musical version of "Two Gentlemen of Verona." Next weekend we'll go back to see their production of "Romeo & Juliet." (picture is of their production of "The Taming of the Shrew" from two years ago.)

The only big thing going on in Omaha that we didn't take in this weekend was the College World Series. We almost always catch at least one game but just haven't made it down this year. There's always tomorrow! Maybe by then I'll have some energy again.

What fun things did you do this weekend?

  1. What a great weekend! I love combining family times with other events. We went down to my home town to celebrate our grandson's
    15th birthday and also saw my husband's family who are over from Italy. We had a great day out at a country house, passing Stonehenge in Wiltshire.Took a boat trip on a lake in the parkland and soaked up the history and art in the house.
    Sunny weather, picnics and parties in the garden - a special weekend for us.

  7. Whew indeed! I stayed home and read for most of the weekend. :-)

    I saw Tom Petty a few years ago at our county fair...and practically got a contact high from my fellow concert goers!

  8. I really prefer not to have so much packed into a single weekend, Kim. I would have enjoyed your relaxing weekend every bit as much!
