We had a fun busy weekend. Patrick told my Friday morning that he was going to be off Saturday and Sunday and I was so excited! While I was at work I sent him a message saying we should have a family day Saturday and then have a date night Saturday night. Thankfully, Patrick accepted my offer! Not long after that I realized that Lady Antebellum was going to be in town and the weather was going to be perfect for an outdoor concert. We decided that's what we'd do! We used to go to concerts a lot before we were married and Patrick worked crazy shifts so I was excited to relive our glory days. Patrick's parents came to watch Barrett for us. I didn't want to be obnoxious but I was so excited to get out and enjoy the fresh air with Patrick. I think dates are important to a marriage. We're so fortunate that we have both sets of grandparents so close and always willing to baby sit.
We made our way to the venue We got in, got a drink and found our seats just in time for Love & Theft. I knew a couple of their songs. Next up was Scotty McCreery. I'm embarrassed to admit this but I had huge tears in my eyes when he sang the finale song from American Idol "Love you this Big". You see, being a parent changes you. I'm no longer able to just see things at face value. While he was talking about his dreams of performing and how he's living his dream. I couldn't help but think of his Mama. I can't imagine what it's like to see your son's dreams coming true.
