Dad-Daughter Weekend

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.

Kelsey’s Graduation and Natalie Grant/Jeremy Camp Concert

In my effort to try to still get caught up, here is a weekend we had in April.  Doesn’t seem that long ago but it has already been seven weeks.

Kelsey graduated from Ohio University in four years.  We are so proud of her and the young lady she is becoming. Soon, probably too soon, she will be heading out west to ,hopefully, start her own company with her boyfriend.



Then the next night we went and saw Natalie Grant and Jeremy Camp in concert. Jeremy is my wife’s favorite artist and every time we see him, we get to meet and talk to him. Sometimes it is meet and greet where we pay a little more, other times it is by staying after the show and waiting to see if he will come back and other times it is because of my wife the stalker that gets lucky and sees him in a dark alley….kidding, sort of.  It always amazes me how he remembers her. “Hey, how you doing, how was your last marathon.” That type of thing. He even had a first this time, Kim had him sign her Boston Marathon medal and he said he had never signed a marathon medal before. He is always gracious and a super nice guy.jereIMG_2738IMG_2754IMG_2744IMG_2751IMG_2769
