Taylor Swift Concert in San Diego

We we survived the fast paced trip. We left Friday the 22nd and returned home on Monday the 25th. Friday we flew into San Diego and then drove up to Los Alamitos to go to the horse races. It was really fun. Saturday morning we drove back to San Diego and went to the Aquarium at Scripps. Then we went and checked into our hotel at the Sheraton on Harbor Island. The room was so nice it reminded me of Ralph Lauren design. Anyway Saturday night we headed over to Petco Park and went to the Padres and Cubs game. It was really fun. We actually go to sleep in on Sunday we had a late breakfast and then swam all day until it was time to get ready for the concert.

We showed up at the concert and went on the Taylor tour. Taylor's mom gave us the tour, she is really nice and down to earth. Then we got to meet Taylor and have our picture taken with her. That is the only picture we got of her. They are very strict about no one taking pic's with their own camera's. Sydney gave Taylor a lucky penny that she had found earlier that day. It was so sweet. Taylor loved it and gave her a big huge. She is as nice as she is made out to be. Anyway after the meet and greet we headed up to our seats to get ready for the show. Our seats were just off the floor on the 7th row. They were awesome.

After the concert we headed to the verizon tour bus where were we to pick up our pictures, and other Taylor memorabila. We got there and they had everything but our Taylor Swift autographed guitar so she said she would have Taylor personalize it and fedex it when they got to SLC. Well when she found out we were from Utah she gave us 4 tickets to the SLC show and then pick up the gutiar then. So Tuesday we went to see the concert again and it was just as good. We got the gutiar and headed home. What a great trip!! THANKS VERIZON!!

Begining of "Love Story"

During the concert they played a really funny clip about her writing song about all the men in her life. When it was over she started singing and she was up in the audience. It was really neat. She sang and then walked down throuh the crowd and hugged people.

Singing "Tear Drops on My Guitar"

Jam'n out. I love her guitar. I wish we would have won one like this.

One of Taylor's guitarist's.

Taylor singing her opening song "You belong to Me"

Kellee Pickler sang right before Taylor Swift. She did really good, I love her shoes!! She didnt' sing in SLC because she has broncitus, I guess she will be out for 2-3 weeks. Which is sad because was really good, if you like Kellee.

In our seats waiting for the concert to start.

In front of the Verizon Tour bus. This is the bus that all the Verizon employees ride on from concert to concert. Everyone thought it was Taylor bus, but it isn't. Hers doesn't even have her name on it. So you wouldn't even know it was her if you passed it on the road. They wouldn't let us take a picture of it.

Getting ready for the concert.

Our San Diego Trip Aquarium and Padres Game

While we were in San Diego, we went to the Padres vs Cubs game at Petco Stadium. It was so fun. I wish we had a pro baseball team in Utah. I would love to go to more games.

Sydney and mom above and Sydney and dad below. The Padres won all 3 games against the Cubs that weekend.

We also went to the Scripps Aquarium. This is Sydney with "Happy Feet" Penguin. It was huge, I didn't realize penguins were so big.

A little of everything

I haven't posted anything for a long time becaues we have been so busy with me getting ready to go back to work and winning the trip to san diego. So, I am going to post a ton of pictures so bare with me.

My favorite nephew Hudson. He will be 2 in August, we like it when he will give us knuckles.

The girls after Sydney's dance review.

Preston at 3 months old. He is getting sooo big!!

Preston rolled over for the 1st time tonight. He is 3 1/2 months old and doesn't like being on his tummy so I guess he decided to roll over tonight. He will probably have it down packed by the time I return from Alabama in 2 weeks.

I won a trip to see TAYLOR SWIFT!!!!!

I can't belive it. I won a trip to San Deigo to see Taylor Swift in concert. We also get to meet her, get a signed Taylor Swift guitar, and a versa phone (what ever that is). I'm sooooo excited!! It is Memorial Day weekend so not to far away.

It is only for 2 people but we want to take Sydney with us so we will buy her airplane ticket and then we are going to buy a single ticket to the concert and Shaun will just sit by himself or we will put Sydney on our laps. I don't even know where our seats are at, I forgot to ask. I won the trip on facebook on the Taylor Swift fan site. I entered on the last day and got the phone call today. I still don't belive it, I kept asking the verizon lady what the catch was. I don't think I will belive it until I get my reservation confirmations.

Well I just had to post it because we are so excited. We are probably going to stay longer and go to a baseball game, sea world and the zoo, plus Shaun wants to go to the horse races one night. It is going to be a fast exhausting trip but it will be fun. Now I just need to find babysitters for Shelby and Preston because my in-laws might go with us.

Preston 2 months

I'm a little slow. Preston is almost 3 months and I'm just posting his 2 month pictures. Better late than never. Well when I took him to his 2 month check up he is 13 lbs 14 oz. which puts him in the 90% in his weight and he is 80% in his height. At least he is porpotional.
We have all finally gotten over being sick, so we can finally bless him on the 17th. 1 day before he turns 3 months. I got his blessing outfit in the mail today and it is so cute. I just hope we have good weather because it is a short outfit.

Our First Tree!!

We finally got a tree planted it in the front yard. Shaun went and picked it out. We got a flowering Crab Apple. I'm surprised how many blossoms it has for being such a small tree. Know we just need one for the front flower bed by our bedroom window. I want a Flowering weeping Cherry.

Girls will be Girls!!

Sydney had her dance pictures last Tuesday and we took some photo's before we left. It took me 2 hours (with some interuptions from Shelby and Preston) to do her hair. Thank goodness she doesn't want it like this everyday. To get the curl to stay in her hair I have to spray every little piece with hairspray and then I used a 3 barrell iron. It did turn out cute though.

Striking a pose!

I have the hardest time keeping Shelby out of my makeup. Well, one night I was taking care of Preston and she got a hold of my masscara and she used it as lip stick. She did pretty good without having a mirror to look in.
