We went with our friends The Ellis's and wanted to grab a bite to eat first...which turned out to be a mistake. Let's just say we ended up scarfing down Cafe Rio on the way into the amphitheater only to find a full-on BBQ inside the gates...so we could have just eaten there and saved a huge headache. Oh well. We ended up getting pretty good seats anyway and had a really great time. Even the opening comedian Kermit Apio was really funny (yes, his name really is Kermit) but of course, Brian was the best. I caught a few jokes on video that I have been trying to upload for the past few days but Blogger is being lame...so go ahead and take this moment to look up some Brian Regan on youtube.
This turned out to be the best weekend ever because the next night was Neil's surprise Rock Band birthday party. Everyone had to come dressed up as a rocker. I love dressing up and everyone got really into it so it was totally fun. Meg went all out too...there was a "concessions" area with all kinds of treats, a cardboard stand-up of Gene Simmons, strobe lights, a disco ball, christmas lights in the backyard, fooseball table...and Rock Band of course! I borrowed a sweet David Bowie t-shirt from my friend and wore fake eyelashes with crazy makeup and hair. Aaron went the punk route and sprayed his hair pink. He also wore a studded bracelet and let me put makeup on him...how fun! With the strobe lights and disco ball, it felt like a real rock show in the basement. I wish I would have taken more pictures of everyone's crazy costumes...here are just a few:
Aaron and I....Wa Ca Ca Cow!
Me, Gene, and Megan
Hangin' out in the backyard. L-R: Tom, Chris (both sporting sweet wigs), Andrea (80's rocker chick) and Kenny, also wearing a wig. Wow, there were a lot of wigs at this party
Having two baby-free nights definitely felt like a great getaway! We finished the weekend by hanging out at Dan and Bobbi's on Sunday with the fam. Aaron's brother Jake is in town from Texas so it was great to see him and his cute family. Thanks to everyone who made this the best weekend ever!
Sonny and Cher aka Lisa and Chad. Chad's long flowing purple dress was hilarious.
