aaron is a fan of neil diamond. no joke. i think it's halairous. but to each his own, right?
so back in may, i was listening to one of the local LA radio station morning shows, Mark & Brian, and found out that they were giving away tickets to Neil Diamond at the Hollywood Bowl. now you couldn't just get them, you had to do something to win them. soooooo i called in, got through and totally played a joke on aaron. i had them call him and help me tell aaron that i wanted to get off birth control and try for a girl. *now this is TOTALLY untrue, and i am very happy with our 2 boys, and have never wanted a girl, so it was quite a surprise.
so aaron bought it, and had a great response to the whole thing, and was a great sport about it all. and it went so well that i won the tickets!
the concert was last wednesday. it was quite a change from the concerts that we normally go to, like foo fighters a few months ago, for instance. there were SO MANY older people. it was super funny. like with portable oxygen tanks. seriously.

but we had fun, got to see a living legend in an amazing place and it was all for free.
