While Kim was in Boston for her annual running of the Boston Marathon, Kylie and I had some bonding time. It seems to be getting harder to do here lately. Of course, as you can tell my lack of posts, I haven’t done much of anything lately but try to stay afloat.
We went out to eat at a new place called the Atlas Tavern. Kylie had the southern fried chicken sandwich with cole slaw on it. She said it was the best thing she had ever tasted. She also had some grilled veggies.
I had the black garlic Swiss cheeseburger. It was very good and the waffle fries were cooked to perfection. Excuse the silly face.
We had some time to relax and talk, play baseball and watch baseball. Wish we had more times like that but the older she gets school events and friends take priority over dear old dad but I understand, having been here before with the older siblings.
We also went to The Ohio State spring game with one of our other daughters, Kayhla, and her husband Joey. It was a perfect day to watch some football and see how the new team should do this year. Go buckeyes.
Congratulate Kim if you will. She set a personal record for a marathon. Way to go Kim.
While Kim was in Boston Kylie and I decided to drive two hours to Akron to see Jeremy Camp and Micah Tyler in concert. As you know from previous posts, Jeremy is one of our favorite artists and we see him anytime he comes to Ohio, no matter where he is.
We left Columbus at two and arrived around four so we could eat. I thought for sure there would be a lot of places, like chain restaurants, to eat in the area but we could not find any. We decided to stop about a half mile from the venue at a place called New Era Restaurant. It was a nice little place but we found out it was mostly Hungarian food. I kind of have a rule, if I can’t pronounce the name of it, I don’t eat it. I ordered a cheeseburger and fries. It was probably one of the best cheeseburgers I have ever ate. Kylie ordered the chicken tenders and fries and said the same thing. Probably some of the best chicken tenders she ever ate. Of course, afterward I was kicking myself in the butt for not trying something new and ordering Hungarian.
We were off to the concert and arrived early and picked up our tickets. Kylie takes drum lessons from Leif, the drummer, and he is always gracious to talk to us and let Kylie help take down the drums after the concert.
I was looking forward to seeing Micah Tyler. His cd is really good and he has an amazing voice. He was very funny, told us his story and how God has worked in him, and was a great entertainer.
We met Jeremy after the concert and talked to him for a minute. He was gracious enough to Facetime with Kim while she was in Boston and wish her best of luck in The Boston Marathon and told her with God, all this are possible, find your strength during the race in Him.
If you ever get a chance to see him in concert, I would highly recommend it. He puts on a great show, has great testimony, and is always super nice.
I don’t know why my pictures are so bad. Take them with Iphone. They look good on my phone lol.
Sunday we just hung out and did things around the house, since winter was still around. Kylie went to Young Lyfe Sunday afternoon and I actually went grocery shopping so Kim did not have to worry about doing it Tuesday when she got back. She needed some rest time. First time I had done that in a long long time. I actually enjoyed it. Of course, I bought meat dinners and a couple veggie dinners for Kim. Since there was a salad recall going on, I couldn’t buy her salads, that’s what she mostly eats. She eats like a rabbit and runs like a rabbit :).
Monday I made dinner, beef tips and noodles, after work. Then we had to get the house cleaned up before mom arrived Monday night after the marathon.
