So the bratlet is turning ten this weekend. A few months ago, I found out that a group she likes, CELTIC WOMAN, was coming to town around the same time as her birthday.
(I like them, too.)
And it was also my mom’s birthday back in January. So I figured I’d kill three birds with one stone. I’d get my mom a birthday present…the tickets. I’d get to see them. And I’d take the bratlet for her birthday.
Of course, plans never work out as planned. Mom was really excited…right up until she got sick a few days ago-dog sick. Doing better now, but no way she could go. The bratlet doesn’t know what the surprise is, but she knows her grandma was supposed to come, but grandma was sick-now what?
We ended up taking a friend of the bratlets with us (I bought my mom a CD…not the best trade, but since she wasn’t able to go, figured it might help a little).
So last night we watched CELTIC WOMAN at the Louisville Palace. The Louisville Palace is so pretty, it’s practically worth the cost of admission.
The singing was phenomenal. The lights were gorgeous. The entire show was just….wow. Very, very much wow.
