Blackberries grow wild around the neighborhood where Debbie lives.  The family was coming over dinner tonight so Debbie wanted to make some blackberry cobbler thingy, so off to blackberry picking we go!!

 We picked two containers of these!
 Even lavender grows wild!
 It was a foggy day in Seattle...
 We thought we were done picking, but apparently not...Debbie kept finding more and more berries to pick!
 Brian picked his share
 Her blackberry cobbler thingy!

Frito gets a spa day

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Meet Frito.  He is Debbie and Brian's "terrier and somethin mix" (he was adopted from the pet rescue center so who knows what else he is??).  It was bath and brush teeth day and he was so cute I had to snatch some pics...

I Heart Josh Groban...

Key Arena, Seattle

So tonight was the big night.  The reason why I flew up to Seattle in the first place.  I came to see my future husband Josh Groban play at the Key Arena.  I joined the fan club so I could get pre-sale tickets, luckily I scored the 6th row!!  I was so excited.  One problem, they don't allow flash photography or "professional" cameras.  I took a chance.  I put on a big baggy jacket and hid my camera underneath.  I breezed through gate and got to my seat, but there were security guards everywhere!  I was freaking out for most of the concert, but once the lights went out and everyone started taking pictures I snuck out my baby and started shooting.  I'm so glad I did.   I was only able to bring my 85mm, it's one of smallest lenses I have.  My pictures didn't come out as close as I had liked but luckily the 5D is AWESOME when it comes to cropping.  Thanks to all of you who talked me into buying this!!!

This is Elew.  Have you heard of him?  I haven't.  He is an INCREDIBLE piano player, and also Josh's opening act.

Safeco Field, Seattle

Aloha from Seattle!  I'm here for a quick trip, Josh Groban is playing at Key Arena tomorrow night...and the groupie that I am decided to fly up for the concert :)  We're staying with Randy's cousin Debbie and her husband Brian.  They're big Mariners fans, and since the White Sox were in town it was a perfect chance to catch a game.  Lucky us, we scored fleece blankets since we were one of the first so-many-thousands of fans that made it to the game! 

Here's Randy with his free blanket :)
This place was kinda neat.  It was a bar underneath the scoreboard, looking over the field.  You're allowed to sit her for an hour during the game and then you gotta move to let someone else get a chance to watch from there

  We got seats in the "Ichiro" section, out in right field.  I finally had a chance to try out my new 1.4 extender.  Not bad!
 Stolen base!
