Summer Begins!

I. Love. Amphitheaters. Especially those that house such incredible concert experiences as did the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater last weekend.

It was a “homecoming” for the Zac Brown Band and did he ever do it up right! It was just an awesome night – the weather was perfect, the company was wonderful, and the music was absolutely fantastic!

It was a great way to end a very busy (and VERY fun!) weekend with my Dad. He got into town on Thursday, and we promptly dismantled the broken washing machine. After I googled “how to disassemble a GE washing machine” of course!

By Friday at 1 p.m., Dad had already been to TWO appliance parts stores, replaced the broken “rubber-band thingy,” reassembled the blasted thing, and had run a load of laundry! What a guy! And it wasn’t the only home-improvement project – we also added a light fixture to the ceiling fan in my sun room. (which, come to think of it, would have been quite helpful during the poorly lit demolition on Thursday night!)

Not to worry, though – there was plenty of Daddy-and-Daughter fun to be had! We went to the High Museum for the Allure of the Automobile exhibit. Fun to see and hear Dad’s stories of the cars he learned to drive in and the one Grandpa Andy drove when Dad was growing up. We ate well – as we Grbavacs always do on vacation! – Matador for tacos and margaritas on Seis de Mayo, ice cream at Morelli’s, and a lunch at Fox Bros BBQ that ended up being our only meal of the day! Add to that an evening in with wine and some of my favorite friends, and that’s one fabulous weekend! And one that only served to further my excitement for my trip home in June!
