18 Years Ago We Went to a Concert

A favorite band was coming to town (.fun) so Dan and I bought tickets
and then we bought 2 more thinking Courtney would like to go too and invite a friend. 
And then we realized that the concert
was the night before we would leave to take Courtney to school.

Courtney invited Lexie which was perfect
because she was part of the family for so long.
And neither Lexie nor Courtney have any qualms hanging out with parents.

The clincher is the night before Courtney was born,
Dan and I went to the Deep Blue Something concert in Fort Worth, Texas.
(Of the song, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" fame).
So I thought it was a pretty good bookend that we were
at another concert with Courtney the night before she headed off to college.

We had just enough time to stop at the taco cart for dinner.

.Fun was at Saltair out on the lawn near the Great Salt Lake.
It was actually a really fun venue -- loved being outside!

They used to be crazy, little girls!!

We sang along and danced and people-watched
and Lexie caught us up on her life
and we tried not to think about saying goodbye.
Although since we had to do it, we had .fun just before we had to do it.
