The Jonas Brothers

Last Sunday was the concert. We loaded up the car and headed south to Peoria. It wasn’t a bad trip at all. The weather cooperated completely. We got down there in plenty of time. The Peoria Civic Center is a fabulous place to see a concert. They had a great set up for a show that was sure to attract kids of all ages, and their parents. While we did not spend the time waiting there at the facility, when we went back we checked out the digs. There was a Parents Room set up with a bar and TVs and comfy chairs everywhere. We got a kick out of listening to all the girls scream every time they started a new song For a teeny-bopper boy band, the concert lasted a long time. It was definitely worth the money to take them down to this concert. After the concert, we waded through all the people to buy the requisite t-shirts and hit the road. We found the one restaurant still open at 10:15 on a Sunday night, waited 20 minutes for chicken fingers and fries and headed north. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find an open gas station at 11:00 on a Sunday night in the boonies? Once we finally found gas, I went to sleep. I had to be at work at 6:30 the next morning. We dropped Jaimee off in Bradley and headed home. It was almost 2:00 am when we got home. Needless to say, I was pretty useless at work the next day. Oh well, it's the boss' fault for scheduling me to open when he knew about the concert.
