Spicy Queso



Saturday was a super fun day.  It gave me a little taste of summer, but I am not ready to wish away spring just yet.  We went to Mark and Mary's house and laid out by their pool during the day.  Mary and I made yummy snacks to enjoy while soaking up some sun.  I brought along this queso and of course Alex's favorite salsa.  The queso is super flavorful.  I just put it all in my mini crock pot and plugged it in at the pool to keep it warm.  It reheated great for an appetizer for Mother's Day on Sunday.

After our time at the pool we headed over to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater for the Zac Brown Band concert. I was a little disappointed in the show.  They jammed out a lot vs. playing the songs I love.  I get bored with those kind of concerts.  Alex says I don't truly appreciate the music:)  If you went Friday night, I heard the show was much better.

Mary and I are ready to go!

We've got our seats and are enjoying people watching

These two clowns couldn't take a normal picture if they tried.

The whole gang!
