What did you say? I CAN'T HEAR YOU

Volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House makes me feel good. I love baking for them (come to think of it I found a new cookie recipe I want to try-can't wait) and they seem to like it as well.

Well, they also share the wonderful experiences that wonderful folks out there provide for the folks staying at the house with the volunteers. And on Friday I got an email stating they had tickets for the Jonas Brother's concert this weekend. I knew Ksenyia's daughter was a big fan, and Kseniya was even in my office when I read it (was meant to be!), so I responded that I'd like some tickets. Wahoo!

Well, come to pass that Kseniya's family went to an event Saturday morning and her daughter Larissa won two tickets to the concert! I had four tickets, so Larissa and dad used the tickets she won (getting to hang out in a box, with pizza and such) and Kseniya and I sat with the boys.

I arrived late and lo and behold I see a big ole bus while walking in. And it has been autographed all over by loving, adoring fans. I got a clear view of the bus since all those loving, adoring fans were in the building. So it was a good thing I was late. I basically had the bus all to my self.

Kaitlin loves JB.

Phone numbers were written, hoping for that loving phone call from one of the JB.

Right. That will happen.

So I get there late and Kseniya assures me I didn't miss much. Perfect! She told me the gal who was singing when I got there was one of the winners of American Idol. She was wonderful! I loved her voice and her attitude and everything! None of my pictures of her came out, but I am so glad I made it in time to hear her. Lovely.

And the lovely young ladies above are a group that the JB have discovered and are promoting. Kseniya said their first act (that I missed) wasn't very good, and I have to say this one was okay, but then I'm a fifty something woman and I don't think I'm their target market.

More acts, more waiting. I have to say the kids around us were great, having a good time, and not being too crazy or ultra 'loud' (it was a concert for gosh sake, so you KNEW there would be noise), and it was so fun to watch them standing and waving their hands and swaying to the music. That in itself was a lot of fun and I thank the good folks at the RMH for this.

Oh, and thanks for the lack of hearing I have today. We'll be talking about that later, when I can hear what you have to say in response. I gotta tell you, a bunch of girls in that place can make some NOISE!

Lots of colored lights swaying in the crowd. I just liked how my picture came out. Deal with it.

And there THERE THEY ARE. THE Jonas Brothers. I enjoyed the concert. Yes, I really enjoyed it. Their music reminded me of 80's music and so it was lively and fun and nothing too crazy. The funny part is that Jon, Kseniya's youngest son, fell asleep shortly after the brothers started and slept the rest of the concert! Amazing.

Yes folks, I had a good time. And when they sang Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline' for the parents I sang along loud and proud. One young girl sitting by my us was looking at me I'm pretty sure with amazement that anyone knew the words to that 'old' song. Don't worry Neil, I still love ya.

I loved the energy of the crowd and hanging out with Kseniya and crew. Gabe was loving taking pictures with the camera and he was very good at it. He has an eye for pictures (just like someone else in that family I know) and he's just plain ole fun to hang around with.

I love you Kevin, Joe, and Nick! Okay, so I actually don't know which one of you is which, I only know your names by reading the love notes on the bus, but I do love you just the same.
