In a Galaxy Far, Far Away
It's official. We have turned our kids into giant nerds before they are six months old. On Monday, we got an email from the Cowboys for 8 free tickets to Star Wars in Concert. Bob had wanted to go when he first heard about it, but for obvious reasons, we decided to pass on $75 seats. When the offer for free tickets came, we realized that with 8 seats, we could bring the boys and have plenty of room to spread out. Mom and Faith decided it sounded like a fun evening, so the whole clan packed up and headed for Arlington. The concert was fun, but perhaps the biggest thing I didn't factor in was that we were a bigger spectacle than the orchestra. Poor Bob can't stand all the looks and whispers. I, personally, try to ignore them as much as possible, but we'd never put the boys "on show" as much as they were on Friday. The triplet stroller doesn't scream subtlety. The concert was nice, and the big screen was very impressive. We tried to check out the exhibits, but it was so packed that we only made it through the section with the fake Princess Leia. She graciously posed for a picture with the boys - giant buns and all.
