Thanksgiving All Year: 81-90 - David Crowder Concert Trip Edition

Well I was beginning to wonder if I'd ever get items 81-90 posted... I missed getting it written on Friday, worked on it Saturday morning, somehow lost internet connection where I'm currently house sitting on Saturday afternoon, and just finally got a chance to work on it again this afternoon. And after battling once again with the formatting I have finally found the html code I needed to post photos side by side, so at long last here is my list of thankfulness for last week - David Crowder Concert Trip Edition!

This week I am thankful (or, rather, last week I was thankful)...

81. For time with my family and friends in beautiful San Francisco.

during Fleet Week

82. That God orchestrated all our transportation after arriving in the Bay Area last Sunday:

- a free shuttle from our hotel to the Oakland Coliseum BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station

on the free shuttle

at the BART station

- BART to get us into San Francisco

waiting for our train to arrive

Here she comes!

- a cable car to Fisherman's Wharf, where we met up with Cassidy and Erin who had arrived earlier in the day

dinner at Bubba Gump's

- a bus to ride to the concert

SO GLAD to be sitting down!

- Cassidy's Jeep to get us back to our hotel after the concert

Ashley and I got the special seats in the back...

83. For David Crowder* Band and the opportunity to worship with them in person one last time on their final tour.

Love these guys!

84. For the uber-talented band Gungor. I already knew of them but had no idea how incredibly talented they were till we saw them open for DCB. They sort of remind me of Nickel Creek and/or The Swell Season.

See them playing "live in the forest" here...

85. For crepes at Pier 39.

Ham, egg, and cheese
or strawberries and chocolate?

Decisions, decisions.

86. For my brother and sister-in-law who remained in good spirits and helped us to have fun even while standing in line -- in the rain -- for a really long time while waiting to tour a naval ship.

playing Ashley's finger game
that blows my mind every time

totally reminds me of a
Cassidy and Jon picture

87. For Boudin's sourdough bread.


88. For routine stops at Chick-fil-A when traveling to/from California.

last stop before Reno
89. For fun new memories with my mom, my dad, Cassidy, Erin, Ben, and Ashley.

I love them all so much!
90. For my brand new windshield... It's been over three years since I had one free of cracks!

Yes, my last item is unrelated to the rest of this week's list, but it was pretty significant so I had to include it. It is wonderful having a CLEAR view while I am driving now!! Hope you all are having a splendid week!!

Okay, I'm still laughing because when I first read #85, I thought, "Why in the world would she be thankful for CREEPS at the pier?!" - and then I reread it and realized you were talking about yummy bits of thin pancake and not creepy people lurking around. ;-)

Looks like you had a wonderful time! And YAY for #90!!!
