Living For Eden Concert

Monday night the hubs had meetings... So I decided to take the kids to the benefit concert for Paul Cardall; alone... Can you tell we had an absolute blast... Paul is a CHD survivor of 36 years. He is truly one of our hero's as he proves that one can live and defy the odds. We had a great time celebrating life and hope. Thanks to some ring pops from the IHH table we really enjoyed the concert.

My kids couldn't help but jump off my lap and dance. We loved the music. Every bit. I have been listening to these guys forever so it was wonderful to have them all in one spot. I pulled out each of the albums and I have multiple from most of the performers, now I just need to add Paul. I was surprised to hear David Tolk. One of my very faves. We ended up leaving early (little kids means earlier bed times) I am sure the ladies next to us were happy to see us go. It may have even been Mrs. Bestor, I wasn't sure, she was my English teacher at OHS.

This is the IHH table. I wanted to get a picture with Carolyn, dang it. I met Lynette, Paul's wonderful wife. What an amazing person. She is as nice and sweet as Paul says... He is a lucky guy. I was so happy to run into so many from IHH.. Aimee, Mike, Shauntelle, Jessica and of course the Quinney gang and Melissa who had extra tickets so that we could go...

OK, so how did we miss seeing you there? Bummer! The concert WAS amazing. So glad we didn't take little kids since the best part of the night was when Paul thanked everyone and played "Gracies Theme". I don't think there was a dry eye in the place!

The KK Pics are SO CUTE! Really! I could just eat that little guy in the old man suit...priceless!

Oh we wanted to go to that SO bad, but it was just impossible for us with the baby still in quarantine and Kurt's new job, etc. etc. I am glad it was wonderful and so glad there was big turnout for him. What a blessing. Such a bummer we missed it!

I can't believe that after waiting so long for photos your kids were still smiling. You got ADORABLE pictures. Love the one of gator. Love the pictures of the concert. So sad I couldn't make it. The IHH table looked great.
