failure to foo

just checked into the hotel we were staying at after the foo fighters concert tonight, checked the red rocks site and saw this:
In keeping with Dave Grohl's doctor's orders, Foo Fighters have rescheduled their two sold out shows at Morrison CO's Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Originally scheduled for July 14 & 15, the concerts have been rescheduled for September 8 & 9. Tickets for the July 14th show will be honored for the September 8th date, and tickets for the July 15th show will be honored for September 9th. Show times will remain the same. Refunds for each show will be available at the original point of purchase until the new respective dates.

Grohl said, "As much as it kills us to postpone shows, I'm in no shape to deliver the kind of balls-out performances that you guys deserve. We're already looking forward to September when we can make it up to everyone ten times over. It's gonna be great."
cannot even express the upsetness i feel now. don't care what i have to do, i will be here for the september show.

Mounted Whitewater

survived the rapids! sean and i went "swimming" for a bit. pretty spectacular time.

check out some pictures.

we went with Mountain Whitewater Descents, and they were terrific. definitely recommended if you're looking for some whitewater rafting in the Fort Collins area.
early morning drive to rafting. caleb wins for QOD "few can pull off the ngless look. there's a reason we evolved from apes."

we've all been there before...

Foxtrot 2008/07/06Although it's not really that I can txt faster than talk, just that sometimes txting the person next to you allows you to say things in the moment you couldn't otherwise say. The modern day equivalent of the secret whispered in the ear, or the note passed in the back of class.

and, quite appropriately, as we hurry back to the hospital from our quick food run, the danger zone is blastin on the radio

waitin at the hospital for Baby Braden. watching Meet the Fockers in the delivery room while we wait for the dr to show up.


just saw WALL-E. even though it could be seen as a little preachy at
times, i think it is certainly a message that needs to be heard. that
we can't keep building ways for ourselves to do less. that sometimes
you do have to get a little dirty. it won't always be easy, but that
makes it more interesting.

overall, i really enjoyed it. somehow they manage to get a lot more
emotion out of those robots and inanimate objects than in quite a few
other movies i can think of. so i'll in ahead and give it the ol stamp
of approval here and hope others feel the same.

UPDATE: just stumbled upon this, and it says a lot of what i was trying to get at here.

my crazy sister

this is julia. she can be a bit odd at times, but that's why we love her.
made it down to tx. now it's time to wait for baby braden to come so i can fulfill my destiny as Crazy Uncle Paul
