Jon's birthday was last week....
To celebrate, I bought tickets to see Buffett....we're big Jimmy fans and truly this was just as much a present for me as it was for him! I could hardly wait to tell him that we were going.
Tuesday night isn't exactly the most convenient night to find a sitter and head to a concert that requires decorations and tailgating supplies. My parents agreed to come down to take care of Cooper and the rest fell into place quite nicely.
And so at 6:30 on Tuesday night.....this was us!
We had a blast....although it was cold!
A few of Jon's former students stopped by for a visit.
Wade and Sarah joined us too!
The Chemistry teacher offered to tye-die some shirts for Jon and although they were finished on Tuesday morning, they weren't dry. Evidently, he was able to find a fan and somehow attach the shirts to it so they were blowing dry in the corner of his classroom. When his kids asked what the deal was he answered with 2 words.
Seriously, I KNOW they wonder about him!!
It was awesome! The whole experience to me is nearly perfect. Although I wish Jimmy would add some different stuff to his shows, I do love his music- he's a great song writer, fantastic story teller and he has the ability to transform a cold night in Virginia into a carefree week in the sun. Jon still loves it after seeing him more than 20 times and I'm a convert thanks to him. I'm thankful for the ability to enjoy the experience together and to be able to go.
I'm thankful for my sweet parents who dropped everything to come and help me and spend time with Cooper.
I'm thankful for the memories that we made and the stories that we'll tell about the night we had!
I'm thankful for the chance to dance in a teeny little space while singing at the top of my lungs....and have my hubby join in without any prompting!
I'm thankful it's Friday...and can't wait for the weekend!
Hope you have a great one!
