It is absolutely crazy how quickly this summer has flown by! I find it hard to believe we are a mere 4 days away from September! WHAT IS HAPPENING!?!?!?
Anyway, before August gets away from us, let me update you on a few of the smaller August happenings....
THE WATERMELON FESTIVAL:
A Richmond staple and not to be complete without a picture of beautiful, juicy watermelon! YUM!
Before the season was over with, I felt it had to be done! We picked the best game ever--Tie-dyed t-shirt night for the Grateful Dead. So we arrived at 5:40 (gates opened at 5:30) and guess what? ALL THE SHIRTS WERE GONE! So sad, but we did get this epic Nutsy picture, where he is attempting to eat me sunglasses??!?!?
Not to be out-done by the bacon festival, BBQ must have its own and the BREW-B-Q was perfect! Yummy new offering from Bold Rock (a cider IPA--delicious!)
The wolfpack got together for a night to celebrate Ms. Emily's birthday at none other than P.F. Chang's! Always a grand time with these 3 ladies!

Waaaaaaaaaaay back in May, I gave Bons tickets to see Frankie Valli at the Altria Theater, knowing full well the show was not until August. So after a long wait we finally got to go and he did NOT disappoint! His voice is still as wonderful as ever and nothing brings the house down like a bunch of baby boomers singing and dancing!
Maybe one of the reasons I am always so sad to see August ends is because my birthday is done and over, but not without a few celebrations! On Wednesday of last week, I met Kristi and Bethany for lunch
Then that evening, my bible study fixed dinner and cookie cake for my birthday! My favorite!
On Thursday, I celebrated with Andy and Mom at Bellytimber with some good food, good drinks and good family!
Stay tuned for a post about how I really went crazy for my birthday and did it up right at Southside Speedway! What all did you do in August? Are you sad to see summer end too?
