What a DAY!!!!
Yesterday was a big and busy day! (and artic cold to boot). We had a babysitter at our house by 7:15 a.m., so we could take Bailey to her show choir competition by 7:30 a.m. Thankfully, the hair rollers worked out very well and so the morning preparations were minimal. She looked great and was ready to COMPETE! This competition was for show choirs ranging in age from 7th grade through high school. Schools from all over the state (Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Atlantic, etc.) - even an Omaha school was there. I'm happy to report that Bailey's school WON THE COMPETITION in their age category. WOO-HOO! These kids deserved it. Their performance was AWESOME - accurate, enthusiastic and fun. They have worked so hard all year long...and their efforts paid off.
THEN...later that day, Mark & I headed out for a DATE - a real DATE! We went downtown and had dinner here - yum! And then we headed to the Civic Center where we saw this guy. Mark won tickets on the radio awhile back and our seats were GREAT! We were in about the 10th row CENTER. Perfect. His act was crude at times - but all-in-all it was a good & funny show.
It was a long day - a COLD day - but a fabulous day.
