July 4th

On July 4th, we spent the day at the carnival and concert on post. We got free tickets for the games and rides from the Blue Star Card Program, so the kids had lots of fun playing the games. There was a free concert by Billy Ray Cyrus in the afternoon. We also got VIP seating for the concert. It was great. As it turned out, we were really close to the stage and had a great view of Billy Ray. After the concert, we walked back to Jamie's house and waited for the fireworks. We had a great view of the fireworks w/out all the crowd and noise. Here we are waiting for the concert to begin: And here is Billy Ray getting things started...with his red flower lei.
A great shot of Billy Ray...
Me and the girls (with Billy Ray in the background!)
Up close and personal with him! He came down off the stage and right in front of us. My friend, Jamie, even touched him! WOOHOO! She was saying that she didn't even know why she was there, since she's not a country fan...but she was screaming and squealing with the rest of us by the end of the concert! LOL
Thanks for a great concert, Billy Ray! The only disappointment was that Miley didn't come with him. The kids were so hoping to see her!
