One.. two ...hut!
Yesterday my oldest daughter had a marching band competition. We told her we were going to all her competitions this year since this is her senior year. Well, this competition was in Chicago-not my favorite place to drive:P and the only way I was going to be able to go was if my hubby would drive. Well, he had to work so I just went about my work at home. Our friends came by about 1pm and asked if we would like to ride with them to the competition. I was thrilled!!! He said they were leaving soon, so i got on the phone to my hubby, told him they were taking us and we left. We just got there in time for the competition to start. I had called my daughter to let her know we were coming. She was very happy.
They did not place but it was a very tough competition. This was their hardest competition of the whole season. It was very good practice for them though.
Their music selection this year was from the movie The nightmare before ChristmasThe drum majors dressed as characters from the movie. It was cute.
We ended up leaving after the awards ceremony, which was good because there was a storm coming. We got hammered with rain on the way home.The band members had to stay at the competition. We felt soooo bad for them since it was pouring. Half way home, our daughter called us and said they were coming home too. I was glad. All of us got home safely and had a great day.(click on pictures to see them better)
