A Wiggly Party

All week Grace and Sophie have been saying "I want to see Wiggles live". Well, today we did. It was very exciting...not only did we see their concert but we got to meet them in person!!

In typical "Jacolyn fashion" we got to the Nokia Theater really early (I'm afraid to miss anything) and had to wait outside in the heat. Luckily we brought food and drinks. It was hot but it was worth the wait. We were second in line for the Wiggles Meet and Greet. We were put in a room with sofas and chairs where we waited and talked with Benny (a dancer I feel like I know :) and took a photo with him. As Murray, Jeff, Anthony and Sam entered the room, Grace went into a trance. I think it just didn't register that her much beloved Wiggles were right there..."live". At first she just stared in shock but as they came over to speak with us she started crying and then Mack and Sophie started crying. It was a little embarrassing but the Wiggles were all so nice. They asked about the kids and Murray even spent a few minutes trying to console Grace.

We had so much fun at the concert afterward. Well...Grace, Mack and I did. We sang, danced and clapped along. Sophie cried through most of it. I have no idea why. We had great seats and The Wiggles put on a great show!

Totally cool. We are jealous. We can't even get tickets to see a show, nevermind meet and greet.

These pictures are great! I love the Wiggles and Caden is too young to even know who they are!

Hmmm...is it a little bit creepy that my kids are 15, 19, and 20 and I'm jealous that you got to meet the Wiggles face-to-face? LOL!

YEAH! I'm so excited we get to go see the Wiggles on the 12th for Daniel's birthday! I hope he does well while we're there. We are taking his favorite therapist and her 3 year old daughter! I doubt we'll be meeting them in person but I think he'll love the music! I love the photos!

I don't even know what a Wiggle is, but I'm guessing that one of these days I'm going to find out. They are all the rage in my MIL's kindergarten classes.
