I love this band so much. It's hard to wrap my head around how talented they are. I've been a fan from the beginning! Youth And Young Manhood is my favorite!
I may be the only 40 year old there, but I don't care! If it means seeing this gorgeous man for a few hours.
I'm hoping they play a lot of their earlier stuff! Can't wait!

- 1 (18.25-ounce) package devil's food cake mix without pudding
- 2 1/2 cups whipping cream, divided
- 1 (10-ounce) package peanut butter morsels
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
- 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
- Garnish: chopped roasted peanuts
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Pour into 2 lightly greased 8-inch round cakepans. Bake according to package directions. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely.
Combine 2/3 cup whipping cream and peanut butter morsels in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until morsels melt and mixture is smooth; remove saucepan from heat. Stir in vanilla extract, and cool 25 minutes.
Beat 1 1/3 cups whipping cream at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Stir one-third whipped cream into peanut butter mixture. Fold into remaining whipped cream. Spread between cake layers; cover and chill.
Bring remaining 1/2 cup whipping cream and 1 tablespoon butter to a boil in a small saucepan. Add chocolate morsels; remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Stir until morsels melt and mixture is smooth.
Pour glaze over cake; garnish, if desired. Serve warm, or chill and serve at room temperature.
Ryan "treated" Hunter to a haircut tonight. They have so many curls! When Ry was cutting his hair the guide thingy came off and it cut a huge bald spot in the back of his head! Too funny! In case your wondering, yes, Ryan does have his nails painted. He went swimming with a bunch of his friends and there were several girls there. The girls asked for volunteers to do manicures on. Of course my son was the first (and only) one to speak up. He also got his toes done!
Yeah, he's a dork. Just like his mama. :)

My son and his friends just ignore me when they see me coming with the camera. I think they secretly like having their picture taken!

May walk again." - William Shakespeare, in The Winter's Tale
My son and I went and shot some pictures in the local cemetery. It's very peaceful and creepy at the same time. We even used the voice recorder on my phone to try and capture some EVP's. I'm not so sure I believe in all that. We just kind of did it for fun. I certainly didn't pick up anything! Hopefully I didn't open the door for an evil spirit to come in!

I love this horse, he looked like he was posing for me.
If I see a dirt road I am going down it! I don't care if it puts me 50 miles out of the way. I've taken some of the best photos on dirt roads.
This bull is so dark you can't really tell how mean he looked.
These two looked like they were playing peek a boo behind the tree! They were all very curious of me and my camera! That's it for now, happy picture taking!

This was a display for Memorial Day in Hampton. These flags lined both sides of the street.
I love Cherry Limeades from Sonic. Lately though, they haven't been making them right. I figured out how to make them myself!
Train depot in Hampton.
This guy is outside of Little Caesars Pizza all the time. He really rocks out the cardboard guitar!
Champagne display in Walmart.
I just love these little old man that hang out on the square.
This mailbox was at a home dating back to the 1800's. I fell in love with the home and the mailbox!
We finally tried the beer in the rear chicken. It was really good. I like the way they looked on the grill, almost as if they were dancing.
On the square in Mcdonough.
Bliss on the square. It's a new cupcake/cake shop.
I love Netflix! Blockbuster doesn't get all my money now!
I took this photo at Publix thinking I would come home and recreate the cake. Hasn't happened yet.
My middle child playing his Fender.
My youngest son.
I picked these the other day. It took forever to get blooms!
No explanation needed for this one. ;)
Hope you enjoyed looking at my pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!
