I thought the contest on my last post was an easier one, with the multiple choice format, but even when I showed Josh, he didn't get the right answers! My friends Gina and Jackie were the only ones who played along, and both of them got just one right. So you both win a box of matches for your one correct guess of the FIREHOUSE concert! Please email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will mail them to you! Thanks for playing along!
The correct answers to the last concert are:

In between each rock group, there was a long break while the bands took down/set up all their equipment. So Josh and I spent a lot of time people-watching, which was very entertaining. There were plenty of crazy people to watch, like a man in front of us with Touret's Syndrome. There were lots of drunk people to see, like two women near us that had to be carried out during the show--one taken away by ambulance. And there were some funky dressed people, like the guy with the too-short shorts and the too-tall hat, and these other examples:

I have wanted to go to the Spokane Riverfront Park for as long as I can remember. I lived in Spokane Valley when I was in the 1st and 2nd grade, and the few times that we were near downtown Spokane and drove by, I always wanted to stop there. In July of this year, I took the boys and caravaned with my parents to Spokane to visit my grandparents who are both in their 90's. At the end of the visit, but before leaving the city, I took the boys to the park. So at the ripe old age of 29, I finally got my wish. While my mom watched Kanyon, my dad and sister Katrina joined us for a ride in a purple gondola (which Katrina compared to the Glass Elevator that Charlie rode in the book Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory). We went under a beautiful old bridge and saw the Spokane River and falls. It was only a 20 minute ride, but very cool! Then we rode the Park Train all around the park, while mom and dad sat out. Our driver and tour guide spoke about the park's activities and its history, including details of the 1974 World Fair.
