    My parents and grandparents used to go to that every year - my grandpa used to be president of the Utah Cattlemen's association so they always got free tickets.

    One of my best friends is a "Calgarian" and he loves the Stampede. Sadly, he's here in Colorado this week and he was talking about this last night. How cool this timing was, so thanks!

    Loving the photos so far!!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I was there an family day saw the super dogs and waited in line for over an hour for the kids stampede pack, sad thing about stampede being over is you cant wear jeans to work any more. Great pics

    Next trip to Disneyland April 3 to April 7 2011 For our second honneymoon and with out the kids.

    So now we have 3 locals on micechat?.....Ok so part 3 i said would be my phantom review im going to put it in a spoiler box that way if anyone hasnt seen it they can skip over it and the photos i scanned from the program and the playbill I Will start with the photos...

    PlayBill


    Front of Program




    Back Of Program


    Phantom Masqerade (fav cosutume)



    Phantom And Christine



    Spoiler
    Now to say my seats were good would be a total understatement they were beyond amazeing you cant get closer. Then to where i was sitting second row basicly feet away from the stage. I Went into phantom not knowing what to expect being a huge fan of the movie and the music. I Was blown away the touring company put an amazeing show on our phantom was played by John Cudia and he was a phenomanal phantom he actually started in the production as raoul and is the only phantom in history of the production to play both parts. Our lovely Christine was played by Jennifer Hope Will's and she did a phenomanal job as well. Being so close to the stage was pretty intense i really felt such compassion for the phantom and i shed tears sigh i was trying to fig out how they did alot of the effects becuse of being in tech theater, I Wont say how it was done as to not ruin the magic but i did fig out some. If your a fan of the music go check it out its worth it and we were thinking when it leaves here we may go see it in Edm I Also felt alot of the effects being so close like the fire it was hot litrelly i couldnt have asked for a better way to end my day at the calgary stampede then to leave and go see this heart welming production even thought we paid alot for the tickts it was really worth it in my eyes to be so close
