Sarnia Beyfest 2011... and momma brought home a guitar

** Not so Silent Mommy ~ Sarah, If I knew you were going to be there I would have totally tried to hook up with you. Glad you had Fun **

This weekend almost didn't happen for me. My Aunt has asked us a couple of times to go to events with her and unfortunately it has never worked??? Except for this year!

She has "friends" on the inside (as I like to call it) and she scores VIP tickets every year for Bayfest. The first year I was invited I had to reluctantly decline because I had a baby the day before it started. (I guess this was a valid excuse??)

Then last year we had a 1st birthday party and really I couldn't miss that??? (Eventhough I had to really think about it.) So this year I was going even if I had to change my own daughters birthday to make it happen. That's right this mommy is SOOOOO in LOVE with Lady Antebellum that I was considering moving her birthday weekend all together. Instead I decided to do what all crazy mom's do - IT ALL!!!

I don't usually work Friday's so that was my day to cook, make Cupcakes and hang out at the splash pad with Lexi and her whole Daycare.

Then up early Saturday to spend some quality time with my little girl (who is not so little any more :( Then I had to drive from TO to London (pick up the fam) and then off to Sarnia. This is what was waiting for me....

The next little bit will be told via photo montage.

Did I mention that my Aunt gets us front row seats and in before anyone else. LOVE you Aunt D!

Front Row - Thank you very Much!

This was everyone behind us.

Opening Act - Local band and seriously entertaining. His moves were straight out of an Elvis concert. Those hips don't lie! He said he would give away his guitar to the loudest fan... really the only person who could have taken this from me was Nicole and thankfully she was not there :)

Thats's right folks I came home with a John Deer guitar.

Aaron Prichett - Beautiful to look at but a COMPLETE camera whore. Not my fav!!

The reason I wanted to go..... LADY A!!!

They were doing covers of other songs....

This next video is poor because I took so many pictures my camera was dying and the battery actually ran out on my at the end here.

(Side Note: The Video's are shaky because I was deathly afraid that I was going to get my camera taken away. Eventhough I had slept with the Bouncer in a previous life... or this one... roughly 6 years ago...or not? I can't remember his name? My previous life is still a little fuzzy to me ~ That could be a whole other blog

The drive home afterwards could not have been done without my superstar sister (we got in to TO at 2am) and the birthday that day was a success.

Unless Shania Twain is performing next year with Garth Brooks I might have just gone to my one and only Bayfest. But never say never.....

  1. That's too bad that we didn't get to hook up!!
    It was fun all in all, but my gosh there were a lot of weird people!
    I can't believe you don't love Aaron??!! He's one of our favourites.
    My sister spent a week with him in Jamaica and got to know him.
    He is a really awesome, down to earth guy. He just loves to perform. I've met him a couple of times and he really is genuine!
    I think he put on a much better show than Rodney... We left after 3 songs!!
    Lady A was absolutely amazing.. I could have listened to them all night!!
