We were honored enough to have won tickets (on the radio) to see Backstreet boys last Friday and it was amazing!! We got a special wristband that allowed us to go the third story of a bungalow shared with 4 other people and we could see the whole concert from there! Let me go back and explain, the concert was at Manadalay Bay Beach. This "beach" has a stage in the middle of a pool that has varying depths. There was abt 40 feet of water in front of the stage and so in order to get close you have to get in! But only to knee height water. Then there is about 250ish feet of sand you can stand and watch from, then there is where we got to sit. It rocked! We had our own pool, bathroom, and couches to chill out on during the concert (even though we spent most of the time in the water). I was loving it and singing the whole time, rocking out to the oldies but favorites of Backstreet Boys, and poor Clay, he put up with it and stood strong as one of the few straight men there. It was awesome!! Oh and of course the concert opened up with the song "Backstreet's back" and not to much of a surprise, I was grossed out by them singing love songs to 16 year old girls because they are well over the age they used to be. Their ages ranged from 30-36... seriously guys? Sing the song to someone else besides the ones that are illegal. But we enjoyed it and Clay will never go to a boyband concert again. It was a great Friday night!

How funny! Nate and I were just wondering what happened to all of those boy bands...guess they're still around, just old. Haha! I'm glad you had a great time!
