May and June

It has been too long

sunny 30 °C

Third Day Revive Show in Kentucky
This show was very cool - it doubled their biggest audience. I think the final count was somewhere around 9000 people. They were a great crowd: very excited to hear Revive for the first time.

Third Day Revive Show in Williamsburg Virginia
Mum, My Uncle and Aunty came to this show - we loved having them there!!
It was great to show them what we have been up to... and ride a few rollercosters!!
The theme park gave us an escort that took us around the park - she bumped us to the beginning of the line to get onto the rides! It was good because we didn't have time to think about the ride and back out.

During July Revive is playing at a few different YMCA summer camps so the director invited us up to check out the place and enjoy a few of the activities.

In mid June we headed to Conneticut to meet up with Rich's parents and his sister Briar.
It was beautiful there:

We headed down to New York City for a day trip and then again for two days later on in the week.
We loved it - it is such a different place. It was quite tiring walking all day and dodging the millions of other people walking around the city.

M & M world was very cool!

We really enjoyed central park - we all had a walk around the south end of the park and then later in the week Rich and I hired bikes and rode around the park. It was amazing - you really forgot that you were in the middle of a crowded city!

We found some quite beautiful places down the bottom of the island before we got on the boat to see the statue of liberty.

The night we stayed in New York we headed to Little Italy for dinner. It was not like i imagined. The people were really happy and friendly. I got this picture in a cab on the way back to the hotel. Basil growing in cans on the side of the road. It left me questioning the quality of the food we had just eaten.

Our final destination was Boston- we did the Freedom Trail which is a 2 mile walk around lots of the historic sites in Boston. It was really interesting.

We went to Harvard as well - needed to compare the top unis... very nice, but it didn't quite live up to Yale's architecture.

Revive is going well - we are keeping busy with local gigs. Rich and the guys are in Nashville at the moment having lots of meetings with management companies and booking agents.
Rich is in charge of the web now, and it is looking really good.
Check it out if you want to see what Revive has been up to at www.reviveband.com.
Lots of love Nic and Rich
