We just got back from a super quick trip to NV- For Christmas Danny got tickets to go see Jackie Evancho in NV at the Smith Center- Thinking we would see the show and then visit with the kids....but what he didn't realize when he purchased the tickets....was...that...
- Nut Season would still be happening
- That Payton would be turning 12 the very next week (today, Happy Birthday Payton!) and that we would be coming to NV to be there when he receives the Aaronic Priesthood.
So, we arrived late Friday night; slept in... like until 6:30 am... we are usually up by 4:30 am... thank you very much Nut season.
We meet up with Shannon and the kids at the the Bellagio for their Buffet....To tour the gardens and watch the fountains. (but the fountains were a no go...not sure why}
But it was wonderful to see Shannon and the kids...even for just a few hours.
We attended the Jackie Evancho concert at the Smith center. Beautiful building-
Like I said...As part of our Christmas gift to each other we attended 14 year old Jackie Evanchos concert at the Smith Center in NV. Her voice is amazing! She sang such songs as “The Rains of Castamere” from a hit series called Game of Thrones. She also sang a U2 song “With or Without You.” Along with several original songs including the anthem “Take Me There” and “Open Fields of Grace” and “Think of me from Phantom of the opera”
She has a wonderful gift- it was so refreshing to be entertained by someone as young as she….with sweetness, modesty and grace.
What a wonderful way to spend an evening.
The next morning 4:30 am we headed home. Quick but awesome!
Can't wait until this coming weekend....to be back for a truly wonderful event!
Happy Birthday Payton!
