Yo Gabba Gabba Yo!

Oh man!  This is awesome. We had the Gabbaland Gold treatment!
So the other night I was having a little pity party for myself, when my phone rang and we were offered free tickets to Yo Gabba Gabba Live.  Long story short - Leslie Hall and Kate Kennedy had tickets for the show to give away and they thought of us!  Leslie was on tour last year with Gabbaland so they gave her some tickets to the show in Des Moines and since she's seen the show "like 90 times" - she wasn't going. I had so badly wanted to take Savannah to it last year, but it wasn't near enough to us and it was too expensive.  The night before the show, Charlie had kept me and Savannah up with some crazy crying fits and I could tell we were both about to lose it.  So it could not have been better timing for us!  My mom came over and helped with Charlie and we took off.  

Not only did Leslie hook us up with tickets to the show, but she also gave us passes to a little after party/meet and greet event where we got to hug on and take pictures with and dance with all the Yo Gabba Gabba peeps! They also had a coloring station and free fruit snacks.  Swanky!
I will also mention that from what I observed - DJ Lance is actually a genuinely nice guy. He obviously had some kind of cold or something, but he still talked to and swung around each kid that was there.  Sometimes I wonder about those characters from kids shows - like, they could be total jerk creepers or something.  

Savannah colored pictures for some of the characters and was totally confused when they didn't take them out with them when they left.  What's funny is that she knows they are just people in costumes, but she still expects them to take gifts as if they were really Gabba people.  She's still in a pretty fun imagination stage. 

Another highlight - more for me than for Savannah I think - Savannah got pulled on stage in the middle of the show to make beat box noises with The Diabolical Biz Markie!  For those that don't know, he was big in the early 90's.  Then they kept her and the other kids up there to dance for a song - she was all over the stage.  I'll try to post a video sometime - it's more a process to get those from my phone to the blog. 

We were so blessed by this little 4 hour get away.  Thanks again and again to Leslie for getting us in!  We're a better Momma and a better Big Sis because of it!
