So, Todd and I are Chris Daughtry fans. When we saw that he was coming to the area in May, we decided that we would go as our combined birthday presents. We really wanted to go to Seattle for his concert, but it was on a Sunday. So, we ended up going to the beautiful town (ha!) of Yakima.
We left on a Monday morning and had fun talking along the way. When you have 4 kids, it’s hard to have long conversations without being interrupted. It was about a 3 1/2 hour drive.
We checked into out hotel, got ready, and went to dinner at Outback…
And then headed over to the Yakima Sun Dome. It was a sight- let me tell you. But we didn’t care, we were just excited to see Daughtry and LifeHouse.
Cavo was the 1st opening band.
They were pretty good. They had everyone with any type of light (ipod, cell phone etc.) turn it on, it looked really neat…like stars.
Then it was time for LifeHouse. They were awesome. Jason Wade even walked into stands, all the way up to the top. They were really good in concert.
Then it was time for Daughtry… They were fantastic!
It was really neat- with our new camera, I was able to video A LOT of the concert. I finally ran out of room, but it was worth it. We were able to come home and show the kids half the concert. We also called them during the concert so that they could hear. At the end, when Daughtry was singing Coming Home, he brought Jason Wade out and they sang it together. It was really cool.
We had a nice hotel room with a view of the river. We got up Tuesday morning, had breakfast, sat in the spa, and got ready to drive back home.
We had a really fun time together. It sure went fast- but it was nice to have a whole 24 hours alone. We love our kids tons, but really treasure the time we get to spend alone together. It just doesn’t happen often enough. Thanks to Pam for watching the kids while we were gone- we really appreciate it!
