For my birthday Trica took me to the Rascal Flatts concert yesterday. Since Will and I have been married Trica has been my concert buddy. We have a amazing ability to score great seats and this time Trica went one further and got us great free tickets! We were so close to the side stage about 5 seats back, but I think if we were any lower we would not have been able to see the front stage. It was a great concert, that is if you forget the 45 min of Jessica Simpson! If it would of been anyone other then Rascal Flatts I don't think that I could of sat through her! She had to chat in front of every song and they played inspirational music in the background like we were at some kind of church revival. It was long! but then she finally shut up and got off the stage in her hooker shoes and very immodest clothing and then RASCAL FLATTS! Every time we go I think that it is the best concert I have been to and then the next time they outdo themselves. It was a blast! and I think I definitely won the lottery when I married Will and got his 5 sisters along with the deal!

Part of my duties was helping in the front lobby. I really enjoyed this since it gave me a chance to meet alot of people. We also got to spend time chatting with the Idaho State Police that were security for the event. The athletes loved the officers and as you can see loved to share pins from their countries with them. They had quite an amount of bling by the end of the week.
Being Volunteers we were given tickets to the closing ceremonies but when we got home on friday Jake was running a fever so Will ended up going with Emmy Jo. I think she enjoyed it. I am sure it was exciting seeing all the countries represented and listening to all the music. We were sad to see the week come to a closing but we got back so much more than the time that we put in. Our lifes were touched in a way that we will never forget!

The Friday after Ems Birthday we did a Tea Party with her friends. She had lots of fun playing and drinking apple juice in little glass cups. She also got the camera that she had been hoping for! Ill have to download her pictures and post a few. She has been snapping pictures nonstop, that is til the batteries died and gave us a rest!
We have been very blessed with awesome neighbors and a friend for Emmy. The week of her birthday Lora came over and I snapped some pictures of them playing. After running around they snuggled up and watched Mulan and had Peanut Butter and Honey sandwiches for dinner. (Emmys favorite) I am glad that Emmy has found someone to pal around with. It has made getting her to go to primary alot easier and it gives her someone other then Jake to play with.
