Birthday Memories




Well, I had a wonderful Birthday this year. The surprise of my mom and siblings, I will never forget :) On my actual birthday day, Benjamin surprised me and took me to a Toby Keith concert. It was a fun surprise =) Toby Keith is a little on the wild side for me, but it was still fun and I do love his American patriotic songs. He makes a big stand for America and I love him for that. But the funny thing about our evening was that we got rained out!!!! The concert was at the Cricket Pavilion and so part the stadium is outside and the other part is covered. The cheaper tickets are out on the grass and that was where we were! It didn't just drizzle, it rained! It POURED! We were soaked all the way through =) We were only half way through and they had to stop because the water was coming in and flooding the sound system! So we waited probably two hours! I didn't think it would take that long :) I probably would have left, but Benjamin was excited to see the rest of the concert =) Finally they were able to get the rest of the water out and we finished the concert. We were freezing wet! When got back to our car, the water was all the way up to the door!Who would have thought that we would have been rained out of our concert, in phoenix, driving with the heat on! Ha! Anyway, we will never forget that! =) The picture of the storm was on our way to the concert, I didn't realize at the time that it would pour on us for hours :)

What a beautiful birthday memory. The funny thing about the clouds is they don't even look that bad. Well, that is what makes storms in Arizona so exciting. Glad to see you two are having fun together.

What a funny story about the rain! I definitely would not have expected that in Phoenix. I'm sure you'll look back on that and laugh many times in the years to come! :)
