A Weekend at Roma........

Our trip out to Roma was so much fun. We went out for the Spirit of the Bush Concert - which was to raise money and awareness for drought afftected farmers. Lee Kernaghan was the main drawcard but there was also Steve Ford, Adam Brand, Leo Sayer, Sunny Cowgirls, and a few other country singers.

It was a fantastic concert. The kids absolutely loved it.....this is their second time to one of Lee's concerts......our 13th.....and we LOVE it every time we see him!! He puts on such an awesome show every single time too!!

What made it even better was that we got to MEET Lee - in person - out the back in the VIP section........its WHO you know, you know, lol!! (We have a friend who is a friend of Lee's!) So that topped off a great day for us!!





Here's Darryl and Lee.....chatting like they were best buddies, lol!!






Jackson got his hat signed and Ebs got two hugs from Lee so they were both sooooo stoked about all that!!








We also got to meet Leo Sayer (man, he's got some hair on HIM!!) but we just missed out on Adam Brand as he had to rush onto the stage for his bit (damn!!)

After the concert, our friend (who is Lee's friend) told us there was an after party at one of the pubs in town.......so we couldn't pass THAT up!! The kids were taken home to bed (thanks Sonya and Ang) and the rest of us partied on till the wee hours with the celebs!! Haven't done THAT for a while either.......I'm still trying to catch up on lost sleep, lol!!


Roma is a nice town (there's a nice winery too!!).....but a bit too far out for my liking!! And HOT!! And toooo many flamin' flies!! Darryl loved it.....i knew he would!!
