Killers rain or shine…

Well, the Killers finally came to town in a long awaited event that basically blew our minds. Only problem is that it rained pretty hard throughout the evening. This seriously impeded our picture taking and/or video recording but the audience was pumped and they gave such a charged performance that it was almost a sin to take the time to shoot any footage of the show because you had to peel your eyes away from the performance for seconds at a time.

Brandon flowers might be my idol now…or at least my ideal model for mens shopping…what  is up with three piece suits???

It was the end of the summer and the show to see. Awesome. We even ran into our wedding band front-man. We asked him if he was mad at us…old habits die hard i guess…sorry shucking bubba…

here are some videos – sorry about the quality…it was raining you know.

and another…the encore i think…

What a GREAT 4th of July!!!

Mr. Parks’ California family came out to visit us this past week, and we couldn’t have asked for a better time! His sister (my new sister!) stayed with us, and his parents stayed down the road at a little boutique hotel called The Lofts. This was the first time they had been to Columbus (aside from his sister, Bridget, who braved the cold in December and stayed with us this past winter!), and I think that they had a great time. On the TerraceWe got to hang out with my family a lot, and everyone hit it off – it made me wish that Mr. Parks’ family would relocate to Ohio and hang out with us a whole lot more! I never would have guessed that I would be so lucky as to have these wonderful people come into my life and become new additions to my family! We can’t wait to spend the weekend in good old Ottawa, Illinois, hanging out with dozens and dozens of Diederichs for the family reunion! I can’t believe how wonderful being engaged and getting married is – when it’s the right person; your best friend, it just feels like everyone you know is celebrating with you. I could not be any happier!!! Anyway, I just wanted to write a little blog to say thank you to my future in-laws, for being so loving and fun and friendly and easy! I think we could all have a good time wherever we are. I love you all!
