Makenna's First Concert

This was Makenna's face when I told her where we were going...

Last week my friend Shonna and I took our girls (Makenna and her daughter Birtukan) to their first concert---drumroll please----ALICA KEYS! The girls (and the moms) loved it!

Now, you may be thinking we are crazy since the girls are 3 and 4, but they did so well. And, it was a long concert, almost 4 hours total. They both LOVE Alicia Keys, and we figured it would be a pretty tame and clean concert to bring kiddos to.

We met for dinner at a cool Irish pub, and then took the girls to Starbucks for coffee before the concert. I am sure people thought we were crazy, but they were going to be staying up late anyhow, so who cares right?

Jordin Sparks

Jordin Sparks opened the show, then Neyo, and then Alicia Keys. The girls both love the song No One by Alicia Keys, which was of course one of the last songs of the night, so I think both Shonna and I said it was coming soon about a thousand times that night. The girls know the other songs too, that's just one of their favorites!

Makenna got her groove on and truly let loose during Neyo. It was so funny to see, and I wish I could have captured it on video--it was true unadulturated joy in just shaking her booty!

And, the girls got along so well. They are so sweet together, and really are good friends to each other. I am so glad that we got to share this experience with them. It was a wonderful night and I would take them again in a heartbeat!

Here are a couple pics of Alicia Keys performing as well.

Brave women you are! Makenna looked like she was going to pop from joy. Sounds like a great concert. M loves the song No One too.

Happy Mother's day Kari :)
