Some One On One Time

The Bridges . Roanoke
The stage for "Dr. Pepper Park" is just to the right of those stairs.

On the 4 of July we last minute decided to go see the Red Not Chili Peppers (that's right, I said NOT..they are a tribute band of the Red Hot Chili Peppers) at the Dr. Pepper Park. It was our first time seeing a show at this venue and we had a blast...the RNCP were great and I loved the open air and all the old abandoned warehouses around it, plus it was pretty cool that we were literally "under the bridge" when a thunderstorm rolled in with lightning and trust me, that wasn't lost on me when the Red Not's sang "Under The Bridge" haha...anyways....I wanted to come back and check out the area so today I did just that, with Braden:

Today I am thankful for my day spent with Braden! Dalton went to the water park for the day with his girlfriend and her family so it was just me and Braden. He wanted me to take him to Dick's Sporting Goods so he could pick up some stuff for football...then I took him to lunch at his favorite place Benny's for a slice of pizza. Then off to explore the area of the "Bridges". As "bored" as he may look, he was really a good sport and not once said "can we go home now?"! This was definitely a day to be thankful for! Linking up with Michelle's Thankful Thursday :)

I will get Willy Nilly up in the morning so I hope to see you then!

Plus I have lots more pics of this area to show!


  1. I bet the music was great! And I love all of those old buildings. I raised 4 sons so I know how it feels to hang out with guys like this...FUN! Enjoy it now! They grow up in such a hurry! Hugs!

  2. A redhead! I bet all the girls are crazy about him!

  3. It sounds like it was a good day!

  4. This sounds like a great time to me!!

  5. I would like to stroll around there... and be at a concert too (found it at facebook)

  6. Hello, sounds like great one on tone time with your son. He is handsome. Happy Friday, enjoy your day and weekend!
