You know when you think something will NEVER happen, and then you find yourself right smack-dab in the middle of it happening? Well, that happened for me over President’s Day weekend.
Because when at first I heard about this opportunity Lucy’s MCO choir would have to go to California and do a recording of their Christmas performance I thought to myself, “who in the world would do that??”
Now, don’t get me wrong, that Christmas concert was fabulous (back HERE), but I remembered hearing about these people traveling before for things like this recording and thinking to myself who WERE these people?? Who would put in all that travel time and being-gone time for a recording??
Well, apparently I am “those people” because I gave in to Lucy’s begging-with-puppy-dog-eyes and found myself right here after making the long trek with these two sweeties:
And you know what? It turns out that “those people” are the smart ones after all 😉
Dave had a two-day pickle-ball tournament (yep, it’s true, he’s in that thing hook, line and sinker, and is loving it), and Claire was braving zero temperatures in Kansas for her first out-of-town volleyball tournament, so those cute girls and I decided to go on our own little adventure.
And I’m just going to let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
We sure had fun, just the three of us for a day and a half, then here are Lu and her sweetest-ever friends, all giddy to go into that recording studio adventure all together.
Turns out recording for hours on end didn’t turn out to be the most magical thing in the world in Lucy’s eyes…ha! But they came out smiling and so happy and we even happened upon our cul-de-sac neighbors there in the middle of all the hoopla.
That last one is to show the long lines of traffic en route home after their recording didn’t get out until an hour later than they anticipated but we listened to books and talked and got home past midnight but it was such a good little girl-get-away.
So, my moral of the story is that apparently “those people” I thought were so crazy to travel so far for things like this were actually the smart ones.
And I was so glad we found ourselves in the middle of them that weekend!
