After finishing the marathon, a large group of us went down to stay in Las Vegas. Crystal's cousin was out of town and so we stayed at her house. Even though we looked like fools walking around with limps, we still had a good time.
Crystal does Donny Osmond's hair and has become good friends with him over the years. Last time my mom was in Utah, we arranged a time for her to meet Donny-- this was a dream come true for her. As we were sitting around resting on Saturday, Crystal decided to text Donny to see if he had any extra seats at him and Marie's show. He said he did and would love for us to come. His agent contacted us and arranged a table right in the front center of the room. The show was lots more fun than I thought it would be! The room was full of women my mother's age screaming for him. I almost felt like I was cheating on my mother being there. He walked out to our table in the middle of the performance to hug Crystal and give us all high-fives. We felt special. We were invited to go backstage to visit with him after the show. The women that were sitting near us couldn't believe that we were going to get to go see him backstage! They were super friendly and were happy to take pictures with us. It was such a fun night!
I love Emily's facial expression in this one!

Hearts be still all you middle-aged women
Even though they were soaked with sweat, they were still gorgeous people, inside and out.
Mom's teenage prayers were answered August 2009. Wish you were with us mom!
