Visit from Aunt Becky

8 Sep

We’ve been planning for Aunt Becky to come visit for a while.  How lucky were we that it happened to be the weekend that we got to go see Dave Matthew’s Band?

We surprised her when she showed up by packing her back into the car.  She was VERY excited as we traveled down the road to head up to Washington.

We had to stop for gas before we went and were happy to show off the fact that Oregon doesn’t allow you to pump your own gas.

Baby Soup was very excited to have her Aunt Becky there too.  She was thrilled by the tricks that Aunt Becky could do.

We showed her Mount Hood, way off in the distance.

And crossing the river was fun.

We passed by Multnomah Falls:

Not far from there, what did we see?

Aunt Becky just HAD to have a photo with the Honk 4 Dave car:

We also saw a trailor going to Dave too!

We stopped by an Adult Shop too, but they didn’t allow any photos inside the store.  Got this one though.

We passed into Washington shortly after that.  The Evergreen State.

Stonehenge (the lower left hand side)

Windmills.

A Military Area:

And the Rockies far off in the distance.

We recharged with the good stuff:

Peach Tea Snapple

and

Cool Ranch Doritos.

Cool Ranch Doritos.

We saw the signs for the Ampitheatre that had gotten the Dave treatment and got very excited.  Aunt Becky screamed like a little girl.

We followed Aunt Becky’s directions on where to park and got screwed.  She told us to get into the line that was actually for the camping ground.

We were not happy.

We were not happy.

Once we FINALLY parked, we got to wait in the mass line to run to get the spots in the General Admission area on the lawn.  Aunt Becky wanted to hold the tickets, and even though she failed at the parking, we let her.

Once we got settled, we sat back and enjoyed the amazing view.

(And yes, the guy in the right side of your screen is not wearing any pants....)

Aunt Becky wanted to run down to the stage to accost Dave, but when we showed her how far away it was, she agreed it probably wasn’t a good idea.

She still tried to throw her panties at him though.

Waiting for the show to begin, we were continuously impressed by the amazing view and the incredible sunset.

The gorgeous view got us a little randy, so we had a little three way makeout session.

Then it was time!

The show was amazing.  Even though Dave wasn’t 100% because of the illness he had had, he was still incredible.  You can tell he REALLY loves what he does.

Even the moon came out to watch.

It was an incredible evening, made all the better because Aunt Becky was there.

But that's the LAST TIME we follow her driving directions....

I was going to write a post that was going to solve world hunger….

But that is just going to have to wait.

Because I just won tickets on the radio.

For a concert.

Which concert you might ask?

To this group:

dave_matthews_band01

Minus one guy…since he died recently…but I don’t know which one…

But yes.  We are going to see Dave.

Our first dance was to one of their songs.  Mr. Soup was going to get concert tickets to see them, but instead bought me a plane ticket to go visit him the weekend we got engaged.  They’ve been a special part of our relationship.

And we get to see them, live, in the best venue for their concert: The Gorge Ampitheatre.

We’ll be spending the night with my cousin and her family too, so it’s a win-win situation for everyone!

World Hunger will just have to wait until tomorrow….
