We never thought we'd do this...

... or go here! See how surprised Thomas is?! We went to the the "Monster Jam" show at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium! The promo team asked me to write up a giveaway for the event on Savvy Sister Shops and gave us tickets for the show in return. They gave us seats on the 2nd row!

We were a little concerned about what the crowd may be like at a show like this. We felt okay about it right away when we saw a member of our Stake Presidency on the first row in front of us! (It was actually suprisingly conservative, believe it or not!)

On the way in... the stadium is, well- like nothing you've ever seen before. I told the girls that the stadium is "sick" and John thought I was trying to be cool. I told him I really think it's pretty sick! :)

As far as the show goes, it was very entertaining to say the least. Lots of huge trucks with huge wheels making jumps, flips and spins over obstacles. (We thought of Uncle Aaron...) The last truck was called "Ultimate Destruction" and he totally demolished his truck. We're pretty sure it was on purpose... Allison and I kept looking at each other like, "What?!!!"

Outside the stadium again- just to prove that we were there! ;)

The promo team sent us some toys and Becca's hat- the kids felt pretty spoiled!

In other exciting news, Rebecca's art was chosen for the "Youth Art Show" in our school district. Here she is with her art teacher, Ms. Johnson and her art work in back. (It's the one with the doves and the basket.) We're so proud of you, Becca!

The basket was textured with glue and she used pastels for this piece. She still needs to name the piece.... I'll have to ask her about that! Way to go, cutie!

Lucky you! I have always wanted to take my boys to something like this, but it so expensive! I heard a promo on the radio for $5 tickets, but it was for kids only in the nose-bleed section. Adults were $20. Maybe one day... Glad you had fun! :)

That looks like a lot of fun, someplace I have NEVER been! I love that piece of art Becca, great composition and color! Way to go.

I think Monster truck things are fun, especially for little boys. I hope you remembered to bring ear plugs!

Great picture Becca! You're quite the artist!
