August 1, 2012 by Lisa Run Fast Mama!
Didn’t get a run in yesterday am due to a thunder-storm, sure glad I slept in instead! The Easter Bunny was very good to Pea and Monkey this year and gave us all VIP tickets to see and meet Big Time Rush when their 2012 Summer tour headed to the D!
We headed over to DTE to be there for the 3pm early entry and to meet our hosts. After being corralled into a waiting area, we headed to the main stage to watch a “sound check.” Not really what we expected, but much better! We sat in the 3rd row and got to hear them play 2-3 songs and also be very interactive with the fans and answering questions. Pea and Monkey were surprisingly quiet.
Next we headed back stage for our meet and greet with the guys. I was so impressed, even though we were rushed through, they really took as much time as they could and Ji was so happy when Kendell lifted her up for her photo! He is her favorite!
Our goody bags were then given to us and the bag itself was really cool. The t-shirt was ok, kinda was thinking more of a tour shirt, but oh well and we also got a glow necklace. Photos to come 😉
We had 2 hours till the show so we sat down at the Ivy Resturant and had some food and drinks. Rachel Crow and Cody Simpson opened the show and then the count down to Big Time Rush began!
BTR came out on stage at 8:30 and the show ROCKED! I don’t know who danced more, Pea or Mama! Sure wish I would not have forgotten my Fitbit to see how many calories I burned between dancing and jumping up and down with a 45 lb. kid in my arms, lol. Great workout too! Love making family memories like that with the kids, we so cherish them!
