Our wonderful children gave us tickets to the Tim McGraw concert this past weekend for our anniversary. Wow, nothing like going to a concert to remind you how old you're getting! Good thing they got me some earplugs, too!
Brantley Gilbert opened for Tim and he was incredibly loud!!! I have to question the country thing, too. It looked like a bunch of bikers on stage with deep, raspy voices and loud music singing about things country singers sing about. There was quite a contrast between the seeing and the hearing! The bass was so loud and low it made my chest hurt! I know, I'm showing my age.
Tim McGraw was awesome! Loved his "Faith" tattoo, as well as the cross and Christian fish he had, too :) He sang a bunch of old favorites ("Let it Go", "Between the River and Me" and "Indian Outlaw") as well as some new ones ("Highway Don't Care" and "Mexicoma").
The very underaged, incredibly drunk girl who had to be carried out of the porta-potty by her three friends reminded me of a few things: I'm so glad to be waaayyy past that stage of life (not that I ever had to be carried out of a porta-potty, mind you!); I'm so glad my children, thus far, have been spared the temptation and pressure to go down that path; and I sure hope they took that girl to the medic tent because she looked that bad.
On Saturday we had to totally switch gears from loud and rockin' to quiet and prayerful. We attended our first wedding ceremony in the Tridentine Rite. The bride was gorgeous, her dress was beautiful and the Mass was lovely. These two really made you see that marriage takes three - Bride, Groom and God.
Are you noticing the lack of pictures in this post? Yeah, so am I. I was going to bring my daughter's camera to the concert since it is smaller than mine, but I forgot. I could have brought it to the wedding, too, but I forgot. Very frustrating.
So the rest of the weekend was pretty low key; not much on Sunday, a small BBQ on Monday with our traditional cheeseburgers and Statue of Liberty dessert. All-in-all, a great weekend. Thanks to all the servicemen who gave their lives so that we can have any kind of weekend we want. What a gift!
