Reno Tahoe Blues Fest

This past weekend was the Reno Tahoe Blues Fest . Our friend Courtney gave us VIP tickets for Saturday and Sunday, so Saturday Steve and his sister Renee went. And Sunday Steve and I went for about the last three hours. It started at noon, but we didn't go until 6 because we had a busy day even though we got out of church at noon. Just so you know we totally justify breaking the sabbath for this for two reasons (and I know it doesn't change the fact that it was the sabbath and we were breaking it) but 1. We went to see Gladys Knight who is LDS 2. It's the only day Steve and I have to spend time together and the tickets were free 3. (I know I said 2 reason) Did I say Gladys Knight, hello! Anyways, we had a lot of fun. We only got to see Betty Wright and Gladys Knight on Sunday. Betty Wright was hilarious!! Gladys was incredible. Only things that bummed me out about the whole thing: 1. We only saw two people of 5 on Sunday 2. There was no encore. After Gladys was done singing the last song, and started saying good night to everyone the crowd pretty much ran out of the place, she wasn't even off the stage before everyone left so of course she didn't do an encore.
