My Memorial Day

(Mike and his aunt Cristal. One of the few people he'll go to besides Mom.)

It was a good one.

First and most importantly, it was my son's 2nd birthday! I now have a 2 year old. A very cute, amazing, awesome, funny, 2 year old. He's the best thing that's ever happened to me. The best decision I ever made in my life was the one to have a baby. All the times I complain about needing a babysitter, or nail polish on my carpet, or other messes are made up 1000's of times over.

If you have kids, you know what I mean.

He got a toy guitar from my sisters (he loves it!) and some much needed 2T clothes from my parents. Leenie and Pop also got him some toy balls, because a Rupe boy can never have enough balls?

Today is his 2 year well check with our new doctor here in Tooele. I'll post about how that goes later. I've had some great reviews for this guy, hopefully he lives up to them!

After all the birthday and Memorial day celebrations were over, the real fun began. :)

(for Mom anyway)

I guess I looked hot, tall, and skinny because I was scouted by a modeling agency on my way in.

Here's me and Nicolette!

First up, was The Sounds. They were ok. We didn't listen to much of them because we were too busy kicking butt at Rock Band. We played Spiderwebs (by No Doubt, of course). I got 97% on Expert Guitar and Nicolette got 94% on Expert Singing. Not too bad for not being able to hear the song, just The Sounds in the background!

Next up...PARAMORE!!

We were very glad we splurged on floor tickets. We were standing maybe 20 yards from the stage. Amazing. You can't tell from the pictures, but we could see the faces of the band members. All of them. Hayley is even prettier in person, and yes, her hair was a bright orangey red.

Last was No Doubt. This is how they came on stage, one by one.

(Gwen is second from the left)

I thought Paramore was amazing. Until No Doubt came out. They sure know how to put on a concert! (Okay, so we were a little farther back for No Doubt. We lost our standing space when we took a potty break between bands.)

We LOVED it. It was fun to get out and do something with just us girls, and we both are loving concerts! The next one? Incubus is coming in July, and Papa Roach in August. Anyone want to join us?

Definitely sounds like a great day! I'm glad Mike likes the guitar. :)
Someday I'm going to go to a concert like that, just to see what the excitement is about.
