Party Like it's 1999

Due to a temporary setback, I currently have no photos, but I've been excited to tell about our concert last weekend. Tim & I went with Chris & Emily up to Sacramento, where we stayed with our friends Cliff & Kim. Trevor & Kiwi also went up. We got to go to the temple on Saturday morning (it had been so long!) and even though we almost didn't make it, they squeezed us in at the last minute. The temple was followed by a delicious lunch at Olive Garden where Elizabeth met us. Shopping at the nearby outlets ensued and then it was time to head WAY out to the amphitheater to see Weezer & Blink 182 in concert!
We were surrounded by drunken 16-22 year olds in the middle of nowhere, but the music was fantastic. I consider myself a bigger Blink fan, but I have to admit that Weezer put on a better show. They were awesome! I really did feel like I was in high school again (except that I didn't buy a band T-shirt and I wasn't trying to impress anyone). We stumbled in sometime after midnight with our ears still ringing...just like the old days.
We hit IKEA on our way home, so all in all, it was the best possible weekend.

Fun! I haven't been to a concert in quite a while. That's fun that you got to go. I hope that your ears have recovered by now :)

It was quite fantastic. And I was tempted to get a new weezer shirt. Embarrassing fact: When I first heard of weezer I spelt it like this: weeser.
