Memorial Day Weekend begins.
I have so much to write about today, but it is 10:41 pm and we are just getting home and I must get sleep!
I will put this photo on as a teaser for our day and let you know about a great way to celebrate Memorial Day with you and your family. Check your local listings for Sunday Night and don't miss it!
Tonight we went to the dress rehearsal for the Memorial Day Concert on the west lawn of the Capitol. It was so amazing and I could not believe I was there.
This is who we saw tonight...
Idina Menzel (she was amazing)
Rodney Atkins (he was not there but they had a stage hand lip sync his song for the rehearsal and it was so funny)
John Schneider (yes, the blond dukes of hazard guy)
Maestro Erich Kunzel
The National Symphony Orchestra
Military District of Washington
U.S. Army Herald Trumpets
The U.S. Army Ceremonial Band
The Soldiers’ Chorus of The United States Army Field Band
The Master Chorale of Washington
My favorite photo I took (thanks Spencer for teaching me how to use my camera) was at the end of the concert when they asked anyone in the Military to stand up to represent different branches. This is Jeff and our good friend (who does more with the soldiers than anyone I know), they both work at Walter Reed Medical Center. Amazing to have a photo of them standing with the Capitol in the back. (Jill this is a framer, right?)
More to come, I have high memorial hopes for this weekend.
