Tyler's All-State Concert last night was simply the best... what a wonderful evening!!! Probably one of the most entertaining concerts I have ever attended. The concert opened with the All-State Jazz Band. Their first piece was so amazing that I actually cried! You just wanted to stand up and dance! Then Tyler's Jazz choir performed several awesome songs that were so moving... I was blown away by the talent! I had to keep reminding myself that these were high school kids! The Show Choir concluded the evening with several dance/ show tunes that also wowed the crowd!

After the concert we went out to eat at Red Robin. It was so fun to catch up, tell stories, hear all about Tyler's week at All-State, Miranda's new students and Shawn's upcoming internship before he graduates from ASU in May. (we missed Nicole, as she had to work)

Yes, they actually serve the onion rings like this! So yummy!

Randy and I are so proud of our kids and all that they have accomplished. But even more so, we are grateful to God that they have chosen to follow Christ and to be a light to the world in everything they do.
We are blessed and know that in spite of the mistakes we made as parents, we can trust the Lord to do what is best for each of our kids. Now if I could just learn to get out of His way!

It looks like you had a wonderful evening.

Those were onion rings? !! I thought they were doughnuts.

What a great family picture. You look good in red. It's one of my favorite colors to wear.
