It Was...

... another great day at the Oregon State Fair. This time, our main purpose was to see Weird Al Yankovic in concert. John is a HUGE fan, and he was very super excited to see him in concert. But, before we started the evening, we went on many rides...
John convinced Mom and Dad to go on several fast, and stomach upsetting rides. When he connected with his friend, Aaron, Mom and Dad snuck away to ride the Ferris Wheel! Ah! That was WAY more our speed!
John and Aaron went on "The Inverter" and this CRAZY ride... the "Super Loop".We had a quick bite of food before proceeding to the Weird Al concert. He was REALLY amazing. Richard and Cindy were quite surprised at how good the concert was. He does total costume changes for almost every song. In between the songs, there are comical interviews (albeit bogus) with music stars, like Mariah Carey, Jessica Simpson, Eminem, Kevin Federline, and Celine Dion. They were HYSTERICAL! Here is a photo and video from his song, "I'm Fat" which is a parody of the Michael Jackson song, "I'm Bad".

And last, but not least, here is a photo from his specatacular number, "The Saga Begins", which is a parody about Star Wars.

It was SUCH a great evening at the fair. This was John's first official concert. I'm so glad we were able to get tickets and enjoy this evening with him. What a fun evening, and a wonderful memory!
