We sat and waited for 4 hours - yes, it took 4 hours before Jack Johnson played - obviously as time went by, people wandered in and everybody picked their ideal location. Before we knew it, there were people in front of us - they were sitting on the steep slope, so they kept sliding, which was a very amusing sight.
There are a few things that I do not understand (Norm does) and I don't know if I will ever understand:
1. what is the point of arriving early to a concert when the late stragglers are simply going to crowd on top of you to get a good seat. Why not just arrive late and be rude?
2. what is the point of standing up at a concert? There are some concerts that standing up is welcomed (concerts with heavy wild music). Jack Johnson music is laid back and calm - a live performance should be enjoyed sitting and relaxing.
3. what is the point of spending extra money and getting a "chair" seat instead of a "lawn" seat (when lawn seats are available) if everybody is going to get up anyway?
At the end of the day (12:15am - when we got home), the concert was great. Jack Johnson is a very talented musician and sends out a good message with awesome lyrics. The performance made the 4 hour wait, rude stragglers and the scorching sun more tolerable.
Enjoy some pictures:
We had to kill... time... some... how.... this was how: Stage shot - Jack Johnson is the little lit up person - the TVs in the
background showed awesome pictures: Blurry shot: Hi-Def TVs on stage and the crowd standing up,
yes I ended up standing
(only for a song or two - and mainly so I could take pictures)

Maybe this has something to do with why he has

Norm took him to the vet. Vet says it's some sort of kennel cough not covered by the regular vaccine and that he's seen this in several dogs this summer - apparently dogs have deceases that "go around" in the dog world just like us humans do, who would've thought?
So he coughs (which does not sound like human coughs) and shortly after the coughing Cali bites his lip. It looks something like this:

Lately she is coming to the understanding that growing hurts - literally. She has been crawling in between the wall and the couch, gets stuck and starts to cry.
We heard crying today and found this:
Doesn't it look painful? To make things somewhat normal - she took her toy to this strange part of the house (the toy is that teal thing below her foot).
