Last Saturday Gracie went to her very first concert. We picked up her BFF first thing that morning and headed to the city. They both wanted matching outfits.....only different colors. I'm cool with that!
This little number is what they finally agreed on. The silly faces are an added assessory.
As you can see, my Aunt's dog, Taken, loves to be included.
We were one of the first people to arrive (cause we were so stinkin' excited). We needed snacks (what's a concert without pretzels, nachos, cheese popcorn and cotton candy?)
This is the stage. You cannot believe the props and lights and fireworks. Honestly, Taylor Swift isn't my favorite singer/songwriter, sorry Gracie.....but her stage was the best I had ever seen. NO QUESTION!!!
This tree was placed in the opposite end zone. That way both sides of the stadium were able to see her up close. When the lights were dimmed, they lit this bad boy up in every pastel shade that you can imagine. Even the Easter Bunny would have been impressed! She sang three songs under that tree. Of course, while there, she couldn't do a "dress change". Gracie thought that maybe she wore her favorite dress while doing that part 'cause she wore it the longest.
I thought I would include the article from the KC Star. It is better able to summarize the night with better adjectives than I'm capable of.
Taylor Swift’s KC show a rush of spectacle and songs
As an added bonus for you.......AND ME!
I carried our little point and shoot into the concert because I didn't want to lug around the big Canon.
It was already loaded with a memory card and a full battery. No prep needed, I just threw it in my purse. When I went to download the photos from our night, I found a few bonus pictures. For instance, this nice little number of Gracie's doll, Felicity.
A nice shot of Gracie's bedroom.

A stunning self-portrait
Our Boo-boo bunny who has lived in our freezer since Ryan was a toddler.
And lastly, a pyramid that Gracie made out of M&M poker chips.
All for your viewing pleasure!
