More from the show

JM posted on FB and twitter and his blog and whatever else that he was doing a backstage tour of the Jones Beach theater a few hours before the show and we could watch it online. I was at work, but my weird computer filters actually let me watch the tour live. So, he walked around, introduced us to his guitars and his friends. Then he went out to the stands and there was a little stage set up and he said something like, "There might be a tall guy playing guitar here a little later." So I was, of course, psyched, but was even more pysched when I got to the venue and saw our seats were pretty close to that little stage.

He didn't make an appearance there until the encore... and then I realized I couldn't see anything!! We were actually pretty close, but it wasn't up high enough that we could see from our seats. Then people started standing up on the seats, which drove all the ushers insane, but made it worse for us. He did this song, which I've never heard live before and which I love. Obviously, this person had better seats than we did!

John at Jones Beach

It. Was. Awesome.
I know you can't see really well, but I set up a poll. What do you think of the pants?

Here's a little vid. He pulled a kid out of the audience to dance with him. I couldn't help but think that this kid is my nephew's age. Great! Now I have to figure out a way to get my nephew to a show and dance so crazy that JM sees him and wants to pull him on stage. It may not be as hard as I thought.

Defending NJ

I guess Zach Braff feels the same as I do in this interview.

The best of the Jersey shore

Look at these three cuties.

Getting ready for the wedding. My oldest niece went for her first mani - pedi and was pretty excited about it, but she's a tween, so I still had to bug her to show it off for me.

Eating s'mores

Playing Candy Land. Chris was a good sport (she cheats).

Riding bikes (even though it was so friggin' hot)

Learning to stand. How sweet is this face?? His disposition matches.
