So You Think You Can Dance....

We have been out of town for four days and it feels overwhelming to write about it all....yet, it was so much fun that I don't want to forget the details....so here it goes....
Thursday afternoon the five of us drove to my sister's house (mansion) in Roseville (just north of Sacramento). My sweet hubby watched 5 of our 6 kids (the 3 month old was sent to a neighbor's house) so that my mom, sister and I could leave to go see "So You Think You Can Dance" on tour. My brother-in-law showed up a couple hours later to help out. Anyway, the three of us met up with two of my sister's friends at Arco Arena to watch the show. When we found our seats I was a teensy bit disappointed to see that we were in the second-to-last row....how much did we pay for these tickets? Ouch! When the show started I kept trying not to look at the big screens because I thought that would be like watching it at home on t.v. so I tried to focus on the tiny dots on the stage.....sad, I know. But the feeling of fun and excitement was contagious so I really was enjoying myself.....ok, here comes the good part......At intermission, a girl came up to us and said that she and her friends were leaving and did we want their five tickets so that we could sit closer. What is this, a trick? Of course, we said "YES!" I have no idea why she picked us....maybe because one of my sister's friends is 9 months pregnant and was standing? Maybe because we had such horrible seats? I will never know. So after we kicked some people out of our new seats, we had quite the view! We moved down from row "Y" all the way to row "C"! We were the third row from the floor and we could actually see the dancers! We all had a great time screaming and clapping and stomping our feet. (Although, we looked quite calm in comparison to the girl sitting next to us who jumped up to hoot and holler at the end of each performance.)
For those of you who did not watch this show over the last three summers...you have been missing out. First of all, there is NOTHING on t.v. in the summer so I don't know what you were watching. Maybe you don't watch t.v.? That is just crazy talk! Anyway, give it a try next summer....you really will love it, too!

Sounds like you had a blast.
I haven't watched it either, but I know so many groups of women who are die-hard fans of it and have parties to watch.
Guess I am missing something!

Ok, CLEARLY I watch the show cause I was AT THE SHOW WITH YOU! :)

It really was so much fun, I wish we all had time afterwards to sit and gab about the whole evening.

I do have part of the "Door" dance on my camera. I'll try to post it soon.

Glad you guys had fun at Apple Hill and the Pumpkin Farm, etc. You guys must be POOPED!
