Date Night

David surprised me with a fun date night Tuesday. We went to a Jim Brickman and Friends concert at the Orpheum in Memphis. We had such a great time! David is always coming up with thoughtful things for us to do. He arranged for my sister Marty to keep the kids for us. We ate an early dinner at Logan's, then on to the concert. I can't believe we are 40 and have never been to the Orpheum! It is the most beautiful, ornate place. David and I couldn't help but notice how great the acoustics were in the theater.Here are some pictures...

Jim played many songs on the piano and then sang songs with Anne Cochran and Richie McDonald (formally of one of our favorite country groups Lonestar). There was also a guy who played the electric violin, too. We were so excited that Richie sang his Lonestar hit I'm Amazed. He also sang Walking in Memphis. One of my favorite Christmas songs is The Gift and Jim played while Ann and Richie sang it. After the concert we walked down to the Peabody to look at all the beautiful decorations in the lobby.
