Day 3

I was supposed to post about Day 3 a couple of days ago..but I have to tell you..I was/am soo sick. I think it is just a head cold, but I cannot walk across the room without running into something. lol So if this post does not make sense..soo sorry :)

So onto Day 3 -

We got up early again and had breakfast by the beach. Then we separated and Brent went to a work meeting while I changed into my swimsuit and went down to the water. The waves were pretty high still, so I played in the sand. :) I wrote my kids names and then waited for the waves to get close and shot pictures. You can't not go to the beach and not write in the sand...right?!

After his meeting, we met up in the room and he informed me that his boss's boss's boss invited him and a few others to a round of Golf that afternoon, and you can't say no to that!!! So we headed over and had lunch and then the boys went off to play. There was a Spa next door, so I walked over to see what they had, but I have never really been a spa kind of girl. So instead, I walked around and just took pictures. lol This place was beautiful!

After, I went back to the hotel and back down to the ocean. I cannot tell you how calming it was just to sit and look out into the water. To listen to the waves crash into one another. Ahh...I miss it...

That night Qwest planned another function. It started with dinner, and then entertainment which would be followed by a 'night club' closing up the night. But the question on everyone's mind was who exactly was going to be the entertainment? During the earlier meeting that he attended, they gave away VIP tickets to see whom ever it was backstage. It was Florida, so we thought someone like the Beach Boys, many names went around the table until they finally announced...Three Dog Night!

The younger generation did not know who they were, but some of the songs were familiar. I knew who they were from songs that my mom would listen to. But Brent was elated!! He has seen them in concert a few times and was jumping out of his seat this night clapping and singing along! He had not won the VIP tickets, but a couple sitting at our table did, and after watching him for the first few songs, decided to give them to Brent, saying that he would enjoy it soo much more than they would. I cannot even describe his face at that put him on a natural high that he did not come down from for days after the trip.

So Three Dog Night performed a 90 minute concert for us and then went to another room for the VIP portion. We were able to mingle and then had our picture taken with the band. We were also given an autographed CD of their hits.

The time went by soo fast, but Brent drank every moment in! And after, we went to the night club that Qwest set up. They had a band playing and a dance floor set up. So we danced, and sang, and danced some more! Midnight was the cut off time, and the band announced the last song. And then someone came up from the side and said something to the lead singer. She then announced that a few of the Three Dog Night band had joined and would we like them to come up. Ummm...YA!!! So three of them came up and sang two more songs, and Brent was able to actually 'talk' with them after. He was on cloud 9!!!

More tomorrow... :)
