We enjoyed seeing Maroon 5 at Musikfest this year with Katie.  It was a great concert, in spite of the rain.  We even saw my good friend from college and her husband there;
it was a nice surprise to run in to Sue and Paul!
Katie was so excited about seeing Maroon 5 and wasn't disappointed by their performance.  She absolutely loved the show!  They sang every single one of their hits.  And it was great to get to spend that time with her, knowing that it will probably be our last summer together before she
goes off to college.

Here are some pics from that rainy evening in August taken
with my cell phone(no cameras were allowed):
And here are some I found on the Internet that were taken that night, too.

 After that concert, we learned that "Big Time Rush," was coming to the Allentown Fair.  Big Time Rush is a group of four young guys who sing and star in a big TV hit on the Nickelodeon channel. Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena and Logan Henderson are the four boys who make up Big Time Rush.  (The show kind of reminds me of the old TV show, "The Monkees" from back in the 60's/70's.  My sister, Karen, and I LOVED that show - I remember we used to pretend that we were the Monkees with our girlfriends.)

So . . . John decided that it would be a great idea to take Anne to see Big Time Rush at the fair.  We went Sunday night, September 4th, and had such an amazing time!!  It was heartwarming seeing Anne so happy and absolutely loving the concert - it was worth every single penny we spent. 
These pics were taken with my cell phone:

 We were not allowed to bring cameras into the stadium, so here are some photos I found of Big Time Rush performing at the Allentown Fair on the Internet:

 And since we couldn't get good shots of Anne cheering and singing along,
we did a little re-enactment yesterday:


Anne's very first concert was a big success.
This concert reminded John and I of the 'NSYNC concert that we attended at Veterans Stadium in July, 2000, only on a much smaller scale.  Katie was 6 years old at the time.  My sister, Karen, went with us, and we thought our hearing would never be the same again. 
The 'NSYNC's fans' screaming and screeching was deafening!

Bye, Bye, Bye . . .

  6. How fun! I remember Draven's first concert-The A-Teens, seems things never change. Don't you love sharing in their excitement? It was so fun, the concert was in Atlanta, and there we were in the middle of all these screaming kids with their parents. Aaron Carter was the headliner so that tells you how long ago it was-lol! It is so wonderful seeing you making all these memories with your daughter-you will not regret one single minute of it! ~Renea
