We're all in this together. . .

Who's excited to go??

So, I told the girls that I was taking them somewhere for a special surprise for their birthdays coming up. (I also made sure that they knew that this would NOT be an "every year" thing!!)
I had seen that High School Musical the concert was coming to Kansas City (about a 3 hr drive), so we decided to make a birthday present of it. I drove down with the girls (Whitney stayed with Dad), and we got to our hotel. . .
This was their "initial" reaction when I told them what we were doing. . .I know, such a great reaction huh? So, I explained a little more and then got this. . .

Here we are at the show, we had decent seats, not too far, not too close, I had brought some of the girls Christmas money we had put away, so they bought t-shirts, glow sticks and some snacks. . .Before the show even started, Molly said "I know how this is going to work. . I've seen them show this on Disney Channel, they're all going to come out and everyone is going to go crazy and scream really loud. . ." Well, she was right . . . .I know you all REALLY want to see all these pictures. . .well, maybe your kids do anyway. The "Stars". I was a little disturbed with Miss Ashley's outfit. . .I was somehow relieved that there were at least little bloomer shorts under that "skirt", I kinda dug her socks/boots though.
"Ryan and Sharpey" Everyone loves a good jazz square. He was the MC for the night, he's actually from Missouri and his mom was in the crowd. . .
Here's Vanessa. . . .

And Monique Coleman did some "Dancing with the stars" routine, while the fill in for the main guy (Drew Seeley) sang
More screaming
This was the best part. . .Molly loves the song that Gabriella sings "When there was me and you" except she calls it "the song when the girl is sad". . .She sang the whole thing--notice her glowstick microphone--she sang it at the top of her lungs and I don't think she even noticed I was snapping pictures of her!






"Getcha head in the game"



Corbin Bleu singing his new "Push it" song. It was SUCH a coincidence that almost everyone from the show has their CD coming out RIGHT NOW!!Vanessa and Drew sing "Soaring, Flying"
"We're all in this together."

Bye.

The girls had a great time, it was fun to see them enjoy it.

This is so awesome! You're the best mom in the world! I love High School Musical! I DVR'd it and I watch it at least once a week! I wish I was kidding! Now I have Jump In! I've only seen that one once! But, I'm totally going to have to watch that one more now! Push it to the limit!
I LOVE JAZZ SQUARES!

Wendy- wow, you are the coolest Mom I know! My boys both LOVE HS Musical. I don't think I will show them the pictures, they will be TOO green!! What a fun birthday trip!!

Christy. . .the girls had some friends over when Jump in was on. It's actually pretty good, not as good as High school musical. I'm glad they've actually done a few movies that I don't mind sitting down and watching with my kids. . .

"Ryan" was so funny as the mc. He did about 25 "super fast" jazz squares for everyone and almost passed out. Maybe they could make a Ryan and Sharpay sitcom instead of Suite life of Zach and Cody. . .

How about High School musical as the new ward road show this fall??? Let's see who we could come up with to play the parts. . .

Wendy, you ROCK! I do listen to that CD from time to time.

I also watch Hanna Montana. I admit, I am a fan. That's a really good show though. If she ever came to town I would totally go see her.

Also, another plug for Jump In. Awesome show, but what is up with his hair?

How FUN! You're a great mom to pull that off for your girls. They look so much older in these pictures...

Wendy, I was DYING when I saw this. So I DON"T have the only 6 yr old obsessed with this show?

Lulu saw this post and was SO jealous!

I am so jealous! We love HSM. Isn't it nice to a mom that ROCKS? (Well at least for now?)

High SChool Musical? Boy am I ever behind the times. I've got some studying up to do.


Glad you and the girls had fun.

So, I was picking up the daughter of the lady I visit teach, from high school. I was taking her to horse riding lessons. I had my ipod on shuffle and on comes, "We're All in this Together". She said, "you like High School Musical" and I said, "Yeah" (thinking she was going to make fun of me or something) She's like, "I love High School Musical". She ended up turning it up and we sang along to the songs. Her favorite song was the same as Molly's favorite.
