Spokane Arena

We left Royal and met at the Freeman's (Darin, Angie, Dani, Katrina, Carley, Gracie, Deana & Taylor). When we got to Spokane we went to Rocky Rococo's for pasta & pizza. As we were leaving there was a girl (cowboy boots, blond, wavy hair, teen) who had us all do a double take. She was an amazing look-alike, we even got her to talk to Gracie (who was convinced it was the real Taylor). We saw her again at the concert and Darin went to talk to her and apologize for all of us gawking at her at the pizza place, she thought it was pretty cute how we were so star-struck. Waiting for the start of the show they had several things you could walk around and do, we convinced our girls to karaoke in front of the green screen (they were supposed to email the videos but we have not got them yet). It was one of the funnier things I have seen in awhile...

The concert started at 7:00, Gloriana played a few songs first and then Kellie Pickler opened. Taylor Swift started at 8:30 and played for over 2 1/4 hours! Lots of lights, costumes, dancers, she really made a production out of her songs. Carley and Gracie were a little shell shocked. There was a lot going on and it was loud (I actually like loud, but add in the 10,000 screaming girls and this was really loud). It was so long, Gracie actually fell asleep for the last two songs! Big Thanks to Darin who was man enough to take his girls and safely drive us all home!

Waiting for the concert........

Trying to pick the perfect t-shirt.

AIM Gymnastics Rocks!

That is the cheer Gracie ends her practice with every Monday. She just started gymnastics this winter and had her first Fun Meet on Saturday. Gracie won an award for her awesome balance beam! The whole family came to watch, even Grandma GG and Grandma Janet stopped in. Keep working hard Gracie, we are proud of you and hoping you are having so much fun!!

one dad, one mom, five kids, one softball game, three little league practices
Never will this happen again but today Dani had her last home softball game, Carley and Darin had DAC Dragon softball practice, Gracie practiced with her 2nd-3rd grade team and Lane, Justin and myself had k-1st team practice. So our whole family was playing ball on four different fields with four different teams and all at the same time.
