Backstage Pass

We have been going, going, going. Last week we attended a music festival about 30 minutes from our house. Every afternoon we'd drive up and then stay late. I mean late. Our children did so well, with Sylas drumming while sitting on a big person's shoulders and Ivy shaking her thang. But why is it that no matter what time they go to bed, they still wake up at 6:43 a.m.?

And happy day, we were able to get special passes to see our favorite band up close! See Sy and Ryan? Yeah, they are in front of the crowd, so close to NeedToBreathe.

And after the show, we got to go BACKSTAGE!!!


Sylas just about jumped out of my arms into the arms of Bear, the lead singer. And then he saw Joe, the drummer and was star-struck. We thought we'd take just a quick pic of Sy with Bear and Joe and let them be on their way, but Sylas would not have it. He put his sweet little hand on Bear's face and asked (repeated-ly), "Where's Bo? Where's Seth?"

And who could resist the tiniest boy with the sweetest voice and the bluest glasses?

Apparently not Bear, as off they went into THE TOUR BUS to find Bo and Seth. All of the guys were so wonderful, answering Sy's unending questions.

Can I say it again? SQUEEEEEE....

It was a happy day, indeed.

  11. I don't know you, but a mutual friend shared this blog with me...this last December, I was talking with Bear, and we were talking about cute kids. He remembered little Sy and recounted the story almost as clearly as you did here. I wanted you to know that. Hope you guys all get to catch a show and see them again soon!
