And I don't know how many of you have driven from Seattle to Idaho Falls, but once you get over the Cascades there is really not much but desert and sagebrush. So Will and I made up lots of fun car games to play on the way over - one of which was trying to name all of the capitals of the 50 states. We got stuck on West Virginina, Kentucky, and South Carolina. We ended up calling Tessha to look up the answers for us. LOL We soooo had to find out!
This is Michele McLaughlin and I after the concert. I invited Michele to be my special guest artist for the concert - and she performed 4 of her songs. Okay and I know this shirt makes me look way more prego than I really am, but it was super comfy and I didn't have to feel like I needed to suck in my stomach while up on stage. LOL.
It was a lot of fun - and I actually got my first standing ovation! How exciting! And to my great surprise we had so many people show up that they had to put out more chairs. I was really nervous when I saw everyone there because I was secretly hoping it would be a small group. But once I got my nerves out and started playing, I was really glad that I had the audience that I did.
Being back on the "Ricks" campus was kind of weird - it's changed so much! You go to school there for a few short years and it's just your own for a short time, but then you graduate and go away....and when you come back, you really feel like it's not yours anymore but it belongs to all of these new students...which I might add, looked like high schoolers to Will and I. Boy we must be getting old!
We had fun with Will's family too. The only time I've really ever been to the Thomas house is during the holidays, so it was fun to be there without a Christmas tree this time. :)
By the way, the capitals of West Virginia, Kentucky and S. Carolina are Charlston, Frankfort, and Columbia.
