I took Hannah to see Elton John last night at the John Paul Jones arena. It was a splurge, but also a phenomenal mother-daughter bonding experience and a night neither of us will ever forget.
Although I was super-tired by the night’s end, I made it through, even with the (potentially seizure-inducing) strobelight effects! But between the water and the ear plugs and the high skewing age of an audience that liked to sit as much as it did stand, I held my own! (Not to mention a terrific husband who not only dropped us off but also picked us up at JPJ!)
We had an absolute blast! Here are the photo highlights.
