rock on


Yes, Ryan and i are rockers. Who knew? We sure didn't. But, we had a great time at the Bon Jovi Lost Highway concert on Tuesday night. I got him the tickets for his birthday and he has been soooooo excited ever since. I haven't ever been a huge Bon Jovi fan, i'll be honest. mostly because i never know who sings any song. not that i don't like them...i just didn't really care that much. but...they are so great live...great performers! not only jon bon jovi himself, but also richie sambora (the guitarist), and the drummer and violinist. i was seriously amazed. plus (mom, you'll get a kick out of this), during one song, the guy who plays the keyboard even whipped out his accordian!! daughtry opened for them and they were really great too!


plus, the wide range of people who were there. this guy was our favorite. at least we think he's a guy since he has a moustache. wow.


oh, and chris and ben, ryan said you guys would have drooled at the concert just looking at the lights and sound equipment they had...i'm sure all three of you have dreamed of equipment like that at some point.

just a great night. let's give a shout out to jeff and sarah who were so nice to watch leah for us.

So jealous that Daughtry opened... we missed them at the NC State Fair this year, I'm hoping he comes back home again and I get to go! What a great present idea, way to go Maren!
