The Soldier Show

The boys and I went to The (Army) Soldier Show. For those who don't know it's a group of amazingly talented soldiers, who can sing, dance, and some play instruments. The only "extra" instruments that were played tonight was one of the ladies played the violin/fiddle and one of the guys played the trombone.

It went between high energy to the beauty of a slow song. I wish I had gotten better pictures, but we were far enough back that they just didn't turn out well and well it was "concert" lights and quite often those lights just are not good. If I had taken my "film" camera it has a flash that goes on top of the camera so it distributes the flash more eveningly and that type of lighting doesn't effect the pictures so much...but my batteries are dead and I forgot to go buy new ones today.

Anyways, it was a great show. If you live in an area that's close to a military base and they allow civilians to attend (which I'm 99% sure they do) GO! Those of you in the military, go if it comes to your post! It's great! Email me and I can send you a link to let you know if it's coming to your area!!

The show didn't start until 7:30, well that's when it was supposed to start, I think it ended up being about 7:45 before it actually started and sadly people were still coming in, you'd think they could handle being there on time.  Ugh @@ Anyways, the boys enjoyed the first 30 minutes and then they were just worn out, Jacob didn't take a nap at all and Jack only slept maybe 15 minutes in the van total....Jacob actually fell asleep in the chair and Jack by the end of it was laying across my lap, wanting to sleep, but just not able to get in the right position. When we got home, they went right to bed..no complaints.

I'm sharing some of the pictures I did take that aren't too horrible. I'm really sorry for the poor quality. I'm hoping friends of mine who got to sit in the front row (they had to gotten there around 6 or 6:30!!) got pictures and will email them to me, if so I'll share them.

I know that would have been so amazing to see. I had the privelige of seeing the funeral guard perform on several occaisions (the deaths of Nixon and others) and their work is phenomenal.
