lucky dogs

i hate to rub it in, but ben and i won VIP coldplay tickets from a drawing at ben's work. we get free parking, a free meal and really awesome seats. ben's good pal from work was in charge of drawing all the names for a bunch of concerts and she knew how desperately ben wanted to see coldplay... i think she rigged it, but she swears it was legit. :) lucky us.

in other news... joel left our tricycle out in the breezeway of our apartment a couple of weeks ago. we were heading out the door that evening and i didn't want to take the time to put it away. i thought, "who's gonna steal an old, rusty tricycle?" think again. the next morning, it was gone. nice. it was a hand-me-down, but i'm stilled bummed. next time, i'll know better.

HOW AWESOME!!!!!!!! When is the concert?? Tyler and I are going to see them Aug. 6 here in Raleigh. I cannot WAIT!! This will be our 3rd time and worse seats yet (1st time we were in London on the FLOOR!!!, 2nd time we were in Raleigh about 10-15 rows back), BUT... we are going so I am thankful for that! Have SOOOOOO much fun and enjoy what is sure to be an unforgettably AWESOME show!!!!

We're in a fight, but it's just out of jealousy. Give us the tickets and I'll probably get over it.

My envy runneth over.

(I took the trike in a jealous rage)

Hey Whitney, congrats on winning the tickets! And sorry to hear about your tricycle. Travis' bike was stolen from our balcony. I guess bikes in this area are in high demand! Our blog is familyharrison.blogspot.com

We are going to see Coldplay, too. On Tuesday. I doubt our seats will be as good as yours, but I'm still excited.

No way!!! That is awesome!! (The tickets, not the stolen tricycle.) I am very jealous. You are very lucky dogs.

PS--A couple years ago my road bike was stolen from in front of my work during work hours. They cut the lock. I feel your tricycle pain. Stealing is just so mean.

I'm way jealous. You guys will have so much fun. One time Rich got VIP tickets to a Tony Hawk event at Shoreline but once we got there we realized that the event was outside and everyone just stood in a big crowd watching him. So. . .no box seats, no cool view and the VIP meal was hot dogs. Lame.

You lucky Dogs! Hope you had a wonderful time at the concert.

I totally think little Oliver could be Sam Munnerlyn's (angie's baby)brother! They look so much alike with their coloring, big blue eyes and chunky thighs. I could not believe that picture of Joel on the scooter- he is growing into such a handsome boy and I can't believe how big he is! Question for ya: How do you like the Odyssey? We are looking at buying one but would love a customer review!
