We had the most awesome weekend! For those that don't know, my sister is a lighting tech on the Billy Joel tour. She was going to get us tickets for the Anaheim show, but I couldn't get a babysitter. Saturday morning I got a text from her saying that she got four tickets so we could bring the boys too. How awesome is that?!?!
When we got there, she also got us backstage passes (no we didn't get to meet Billy, but we got an awesome tour). The boys favorite part was getting to see the piano underneath the stage. Austin now tells anyone who will listen about how the piano is on an elevator and it comes up through the floor. She even had these passes made up for the boys with their names on them. Everyone kept asking how little boys got backstage passes.
The show was fabulous--almost 2 1/2 hours long! Luckily my sis got earplugs for the boys because we were right up front and it was loud. Both boys enjoyed it, but Brendan was the most enthusiastic. Every time he hears Piano Man or We Didn't Start the Fire. He gets a big smile and says "Billy Joel is so fun". Mommy has to agree--I've always loved Billy Joel! I took a few pictures, but they're on a throw away camera, so I haven't gotten them developed yet. I'll share when I do.
Our weekend didn't end there, though. Even though that would have been more than enough excitement, we had promised to take Austin to Medeival Times as his birthday present. Well this was the last weekend of kids go free, so Sunday we headed over there. Mike complained about how much it cost us (about $140 when all was said and done), but it was a lot of fun. Other than the near emergency room visit of Brendan getting his leg stuck int he chair, the boys had fun. Mike and I did too. Probably not something we'll do again, at least not for a long while, but fun :)
Here's a few pics.
We were in the Yellow Knight's section. Don't you think he looks like Rachel's boyfriend Tag from Friends?
These two I paid (gasp!) $20 for, but they were so cute, I couldn't resist! The scans aren't the greatest since I can't get them out of the folder they put them in.

Secondly, I have been tagged now three times with this tag, so I'd better post it--LOL! Actually, I am again, feeling loved to have received this:
It's called a "Blog Blessing". The idea behind this tag game is different from other tag games. Rather than look inwardly, we are to look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for three blog friends. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to do so. In addition, be sure to go to the blog of those you are blessing and leave a comment on their blog to be sure they check yours!
Ok, since I was tagged by Sparkle, Marjorie and Kathi, three of my favorite bloggers, who all inspire me every day, I'll have to choose others: Definitely, Kristy, who not only posts such fabulous things on her own blog, but is always leaving wonderful, nice comments on mine. It always makes me smile when I see a comment from her. My second person will be my friend Sarah, who hasn't updated her blog much lately because she is superwoman. Seriously, she goes to school, works and is a wonderful mom to 3 kids. She is my hero :) For my third person, I'll tag Nona. She's new to blogging, but has been an artwork inspiration to me for a while now. You have to see her GORGEOUS wedding album on her blog--makes me want to re-do mine! There are so many blogs and peopls out there that inspire me--you can see that in my sidebar.
I also want to say a special thanks to all of you who stop by and especially those of you who leave comments. It really does mean a lot.
And while I'm feeling all mushy, have you heard this song? If you don't like country I apologize, but I heard this song today for the first time and it made me cry.
