Met up with some friends before it started…my friend from old BYU days and her son who will be Max’s roommate in the Fall.
Love Brigitta 🙂
(Loved that Dave’s sister and my brother could join us.)
Here’s a little snippet to bring you into the ambiance of that place:
They pulled out all the stops I tell you…more and more excitement just kept coming at us! Jets flying over, music, dancing, competitions, etc.
…a little parade:
…check out these pogo stick guys amidst all the other hoopla:
There were all kinds of bike tricks mixed in there too.
And then the concert began.
It was One Republic.
And they didn’t disappoint either.
…then more crazy stunts and dancing:
…including night skydivers lighting up the air above us.
They just continued to wow us.
And then the fireworks began.
Like I said, it was non-stop “wow-ness” going on all night long.
Even Lucy, who had been a little huffy walking in with such a gigantic crowd on such a hot evening, sat mesmerized the whole night.
I love that Elle happened to FaceTime from Jerusalem in the middle of it all and we got to share some of the fireworks with her too…our whole family huddled in those bleachers mesmerized by that show.
(Interesting song choice up there…)
And then they ended with this:
(love that song)
As we flowed out of that stadium surrounded by family, running into friends here and there, talking over all that magic, I just felt so grateful.
