My sister-in-law Megan and I went to see Bruno Mars' concert together at Hershey Park stadium. As you may recall in my last post, I went to his show in Hawaii in April. And yes, the initial purpose of this whole weekend trip was to see Bruno again, BUT it all became a reality because I'd also get to see my parents, siblings, niece and nephew :)
|Yes, I bought this hat because I knew Bruno also wore it... AND it'd be a good beach hat ;)|
Fun fact - I commented on Bruno's brother (and drummer's) instagram photo that I had just flown in from Hawaii for the show that night, and he commented back to me with a thumbs up. I was telling Megan that he knew I was there, and that was pretty cool. Haha.
We had a wonderful time. And unlike the last concert I went to of Bruno's, I took plenty of video!! (Last time I didn't check to see how full my phone storage was and I didn't have enough space to take the videos I wanted to). The Hershey Park show was the largest show they had played on the US tour so far - thirty thousand people! You really start to understand how many people that is when it takes 1 hour to get out of the parking lot, haha. Our seats were in the back, so the video I put together isn't too visually stimulating, but the sound is awesome (for an iphone). Bruno really has a strong voice.
OK, last thing for this post. we bought racks for our car and a stand up paddle board! I've been wanting one ever since we moved to Hawaii almost 3 years ago, but we were having trouble finding the space and justifying the cost. We finally went for it. Now we just need to get a second one... haha. It's a 9'x10" bamboo top, rasta colored SUP. We've only taken it in the water once so far, but we're excited to keep using it!!
