Florida Sunset

Last night we were invited as VIP's to a benefit concert for ROCK Camp {Reaching Out to Cancer Kids} in the Villages.
We got there a little early and as I was making a dork of myself laying on the ground to photograph flowers {gotta get down to their level, ya know? LOL!} Kolin pointed out how beautiful the sun looked on the far end of the parking lot as it was settling down for the night.
Isn't this just amazing?

The concert was all country western and alot of fun. We met a young girl who name is Nina and let me tell you, that girl can sing..WOW!! Heck, she sang "Jesus Take The Wheel" and in all honesty...Dad Bear had to go get me some kleenex.

We were invited on stage and were asked to speak about Kody and ROCK Camp. Kody did an awesome job at the mike and Kolin, being as cool as he is, helped interpret as best he could. I wish I had a photo of the two of them because when they were done, they hugged each other and everybody in that crowd just clapped so hard for them. I am sure I heard a bunch of "Awwwww's" too. :0)
Anywhos...we all took a quick turn to speak and although I don't know the exact amount of $ raised for Kody's camp..I am sure it will help make a difference in the lives of a whole bunch of cancer kids this summer.

I don't have any actual pic's from last night, since we were all on stage an all..the paparazzi had to leave her camera on her chair. more thing. We didn't know it, but there was to be a huge spread of every food and drink you can imagine. Well, not knowing we made sure to feed the boys before we left. true K&K soon as those two were invited to chow down, the chowed, and chowed and holy cannoli...chowed some more. LOL, this I would hope would take a huge dent off the grocery bill those two supply for me each week. However, first thing this morning Kolin is back to telling me how starvin' he is again. Dang I wish I could stay at a continuous 98 pounds no matter how many, errrr, Kolin I love you but here goes, no matter how many burgers, pepperjack cheese slices, chips, salsa, cookies, chocolate covered strawberries, grapes, and soda pop I ate in a single hour.
Damn...I think I just put on three pounds typing that out.
Looks like it's time for me to hit the sidewalk and get to walking this morning...with Kolin of course, the little brat. :0)

Have a great day everyone!!

I have to work from home today and finish up my newborn hats for the hat site. It is a goal this weekend that I am really fixin' to accomplish.

Love, Kim

KOLIN --- !!! Sounds like ya did good and saved the expense of a midnight TREAT!! :o) The chocolate covered strawberries sound FANTASTIC!!! I sure wish I was there to see your family on stage, and to see you boys embrace. What a proud moment for your parents!

Kim, that sunset did it. I WANNA COME TO FLORIDA! Got extra room for five people?! :) Just kidding, but that sure makes me yearn for summer so much more. Yeah, we had sun for HALF the day yesterday. Yeah, we had temps ... are you ready for this? ... in the low 50s for a SHORT time yesterday. (Stop your know that's a heat wave for us New Yorkers!) But, gosh, those palm trees do it to me every time. They are so tropical...

Oh well, back to reality. A rainy day ahead up here! Have a great day today! Thanks for the update!
