Tuesday night was the pinnacle of our summer concert series! 10 of us gather together with our various children and hit the sold out JoBro concert @ Arco Arena. It was crazy! I have never had to wait in line to get into the arena - we waited 30 minutes. This was E & N's first real concert so they were really excited! I bought them each a $35 t-shirt. Yep, even a small kids shirt was $35! It seemed nuts but it was a part of the experience and I do love my concert shirts (also know as a new quilt...hello?) :) We had sodas and popcorn and settled in for the show. My wonderful little boys did not understand why all those girls kept screaming. "Mom, why do the keep screaming - I can't hear!" It was hilarious. I have never heard of the opening band - Honor Society? They were ok - perfect for the screaming 12 year old girls. Next was Jordin Sparks - she was pretty good. Once the JoBros came on stage the boys screamed a couple of times too. My niece K screamed ALOT! My poor sister probably had permanent hearing loss. I was a little disappointed in the performance. Both Coldplay and No Doubt interacted with the audience a lot but these boys not so much. Maybe it is just because they are so young? None of the kids seemed to notice so I guess it doesn't matter. We had pretty good seats and they had quite the stage set up. I wish now that I had brought my camera. Not for pictures of our group - my sisters got those but for pictures of all the crazies! Mothers appeared to weep at the sight of these young boys. (That creeped me out - seriously!) Cars in the parking lot indicated one group of girls had driven 1920 miles to get to the show, another had seen two shows in two days. Everyone had JoBro attire on - homemade and store bought. LOTS of signage going on! Oh, the pictures I could have come back with. As we were leaving we watched a large group of "fans" chasing the buses out of the arena parking lot. I could not imagine being the driver and praying that you don't run over some over zealous 10 year old trying to get one last look.
The boys left on a camping trip with Grandma and Grandpa in the "big van" as Noah likes to call it. They will be gone the rest of the week and I will go up on Saturday or Sunday and bring them home so we can get things settled before school starts next week. Not to mention the fact that they have to be home by Monday night so they can hang out with MK. I can't wait for her to get here. We talk everyday but I haven't seen her since I flew to LV for her birthday in February.
My turn to pick the book for our club - I still haven't decided between three books? Better get crackin'! :)
D if you are reading this - GOOD LUCK Thursday and Friday! I will offer you Starbucks as soon as possible!
