I'm a tech nerd so bear with me. I'm the type of person who watches every Apple Keynote live, I know the new specifications of products coming out, and if there's an app that's gaining popularity I have to try it. So imagine my excitement when I saw Apple and Google in person!

Over the weekend, we were out and about a lot. We went everywhere, from a trampoline place, to shopping then to having lunch at a restaurant. Everywhere we went, it seemed like everyone was living through their phones.
