What a fun weekend we had!
We had tickets to go see Heart in concert along with Joan Jett and the Blackhearts this weekend in Cedar Rapids Iowa and it was a fantastic concert!
We went with my brother and sister in law and headed out early on Saturday to not only pick up our tickets for the show, but to also possibly check into the hotel that we were staying at.
Well we didn’t have any trouble with getting the tickets but it would have cut it too short to get back and forth to our hotel and find something to eat. We had a late check in, so we opted for eating instead.
And the funniest thing happened. You know when you’re sitting somewhere and you see someone that looks like you know them, but you’re just not quite sure? Well, we were all sitting just visiting in this one bar/restaurant and here walks by one of Daryl’s best friends from high school. Both him and his wife were also going to the concert and they stopped in at the same place to grab something to eat before the concert. How fun is that!
So we spent some time talking not only to him but also his wife and said that maybe we’d see them at the concert. Seriously, that’s probably not going to happen right? The venue that we were going to holds up to 8600 people for concerts and the likely hood that we’ll see them is slim to none.
After we killed sometime downtown, we were off to the concert. Our seats were in the 5th row from the stage and we were ready to do some jammin’. Then my brothers phone goes off and it’s from the one guy that we were talking to downtown and he sent a picture of us four. What? Here they were in the bleachers right beside us and up some levels. Too funny! I guess I have to take it back that we wouldn’t see them again tonight
It didn’t take long and Joan Jett came out on stage and put on an awesome opening act! I’m telling you, she might have been doing this for awhile, but she is really good!!

Then Ann Wilson walks up on stage and the crowd goes crazy! I am a terrible singer and I know it, but I also know a really good singer too. And she is definitely someone who can sing! She rocked the house and if you left the concert and didn’t have a good time – well I think that’s your fault. But I just can’t believe that anyone didn’t have a great time!

We got home Sunday afternoon and was able to skype with Kyle one last time while he’s in Korea. He’s heading back to the states this weekend and will be staying on the East Coast for a couple of weeks before he makes it back to Iowa. It’ll be great to see him again in person!
Well the weekend is over and now it’s time to get ready for the upcoming week and possibly snow. Yea.. not so cool! But heading out for the weekend with great company and a fun time is just what makes the winter go by so much faster! Snow? Whatever.. bring it on! We’ll be singing Barracuda!
