CONCERT, COMPANIONSHIP AND A 'GETAWAY'

Yesterday afternoon my daughter's friend called..and her mom and I talked....we knew they were going to Avril's concert, and we decided that we would all go in one car, which was great..and since I had the biggest car and the most going (2 daughters) I drove. We stopped at
Dairy Queen for ice cream on the way into the city. Once in the city, we proceeded to the nearest parking garage and I paid, got my receipt and found a parking spot on the first level! (That was an amazing find actually). When we got to the Metro Centre, we parted ways with our friends, and decided to just meet up at the car later, as they had seats on the opposite side of the forum. The concert was really good...lots of mothers and daughters there. Since it was actually a first concert for both my girls, I let them get souviners. Youngest chose a hooded sweatshirt with Avril's name on it, oldest chose a poster for her room.
When the concert was over, we actually got out of the city very fast.....apparently not all people at the parking garage paid first, so they had to wait in a lineup to pay, and since I was parked on the bottom level, I got out before the majority of the crowd!! Great ending to a great night!!

Today I am taking my son and youngest DD away for a night...not sure where, but I think we will stay at a Super 8 motel. There are 3 possibilities to choose from. I also promised my son that he can pick out and purchase his new shoes for school, since he is feeling kind of left out with two sisters that are getting to do a couple of things. DH is going to come up with something fun for DS soon though.

Have a great day everyone and I will post sometime tomorrow after I return.

Hugs
