It's Time to Begin...



Last night, we took both kids to their first ever live concert.  We were initially concerned that we’re taking them to a concert on a Sunday night, when there’s school the next day.  The concert wouldn’t start (if it starts on time) until 8pm and it was held about an hour away from where we live.  We decided to go anyway, because (1) it’s Imagine Dragons (!) and (2) we all love their music.  I am so glad we did. 

The concert was simply all kinds of awesome.  There was no front act.  They simply came out and sang their hearts out for 1.5 hours.  From the get-go, we were all on our feet, singing along.  They sang many of their hits and quite a number of songs from their latest album, Smoke + Mirrors.

At first, Josh was a bit embarrassed that his parents were acting like teenagers –cheering and singing along, as one does at awesome concerts! –but he soon started singing along with gusto as well.  Both Josh and Zoë were both more knowledgeable about the songs and lyrics than either Chris or me!  I had to check a couple of times with them the titles of the songs that were being played. 

It was so cool to have been able to share this experience with both Josh and Zoë.  Who knows how many more concerts we can take them before they would prefer going to them with their friends instead.

I'll just bet they had a grand time and I can just imagine what fun they will have telling their friends about it today in school! Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day!

First off who is Imagine Dragons? And then tell Josh that it's the parent's job to embarrass their children. I've been doing it for years and now I'm embarrassing my grandkids!!! Tom The Backroads Traveller

Totally jealous!

So jealous - and I'm probably old enough to be your kids' grandmother and yep, I'd be singing and dancing along too. Love Imagine Dragons.

We have never taken our kids to a concert. Imagine Dragons are coming here to Auckland on their tour. Maybe this is where we should start.

Concerts are so much fun. So glad your kiddos got to experience it with you.

What a beautiful experience to share with the children! (I must admit I don't know the group at all, but I don't know many beyond country. ;-) )

I bet your kids will always remember this. <3
