We got to attend the Leishman's 4th of July BBQ although I literally was there for 20 minutes and then it was time to head to the stadium. Diane took Deb & I and dropped off my car in a good area to boogie out afterwards as to not be in horrible traffic. Then she dropped us off near the stadium and we met the Connors' who had gotten there early and reserved us seat backs as we were in the bleachers. (Thanks Marleen!) Wendy and Sandie dropped off an hour later Madison, Jason, Abby, Brenna, Janna & Jason. It worked out great to not have the kids there so long before. Sandie then went and checked Megan out of EFY (early) which saved us coming back and getting her at 6:30 a.m. Megan then got to enjoy being with the family at the Leishman's. Thanks to all the drivers who made it all work out!
The 6 parachuters and Fighter Jets added great dramatics to the show. Hey -- what's up with this? Since we were in the end-zone that automatically makes us part of the patriotic presentation. We kept saying . . . "I bet this looks cool . . . too bad we are missing it." Can you say claustrophobic??
Loved the field show more than anything else! We are so proud to be Americans!! and blessed. (Note the Red, White & Blue tarps are now being passed below us). Having so many performers on the field made it hard to fight back the tears. Awesome!!
Madison & Courtney show off their light displays.
They had special glasses that made everything look like a prism. Something fun to do while Miley sang her newest "unknown" songs.
We avoided the crowds by leaving when the fireworks started. I know we would have enjoyed them more from our seats but driving away in our car as they ended felt really good! We did stop to catch a few Kodak Moments as we passed the thousands of on-lookers outside the stadium. We now know what a Stadium of Fire experience is all about!! Too Fun!
