We Be Jammin'...

Last night in Little Rock, Arkansas there was some jammin' going on. Kev and I went with about twenty others from our youth group (although others from our group went on their own) to this:

We had to wait out in line, and it was COLD and we looked like this:

Then we went in and our view was this:

and this (WOW!):

We then saw and heard (I got some pictures from a friend with closer seats):

American Idol fans...Jason Castro

David Crowder Band

Francesca Battistelli (Kayla of course LOVED her style!)

Kutless (Jordan's favorite)

Red (Not my favorite, but my rocker daughter likes them.)

Newsboys (they had an AWESOME show, but since they were last, I was wearing down.)

Others we heard were:
Chris August
Sidewalk Prophets
Tony Nolan (speaker)

The whole center was full of young people and their youth leaders or parents. It gave me chills just to think of all the Christian teenagers hanging out on a Saturday night singing and dancing for the Lord. My personal favorite part was probably the David Crowder Band. That guy knows some praise and worship tunes. Francesca was also a favorite, just 'cause her songs could have come out of my own diary. And then when Kutless sung "What Faith Can Do," we all got excited. (that is Jordan's favorite song. He even had to go buy the t-shirt.)

Kayla and Jordan sportin' the lighted glasses.

We were in nosebleed seats, sometimes it was hard to hear the talking, and it got kind of late for this old woman (we didn't get back home till around twelve at night) BUT, we had a blast. Kayla even says her throat hurts from singing so much last night. Another night full of memories.
I thank the Lord for every moment I am able to spend with my kiddos making memories.
LATE night, LOUD music, LOADS of kids...surely I earned some mommy brownie points with this memory maker!!! :)

That sounds so awesome. OMgosh I love most of those bands. What a night. I cannot wait to take my girls to something like that. Love the glasses.

OMGosh, Kyle was there last night with his youth group and he had a great time!! Didn't get home 'til midnight (like you said) and it was tough to stay awake for him to call me to come pick him up.

I went to Winter Jam in 2008 (I think it was) and it was a BLAST!! Got to see Skillet and Barlow Girl, Mandisa and Mercy Me. Oh it was good.

So glad you and your group got to go and you all enjoyed it!

Oh I would love to go to something like that!

(I would have to argue your "cold" wait in line outside. We are still buried in 6 ft of snow around here.)

Sounds awesome! Tell K I'm right with her-I love Francessca B!

What a night. Is there anything sweeter than worship shared as a family?!
