Rock the Universe, well - Rocks. Duh. The weekend is always Packed Full of Fun. It's a non-stop weekend full of fun and crazy and TONS of people, and concerts and eating and roller coasters. And I love it.
We get to go to both Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios and it's a blast. This is the 8th year I've gone to Rock the Universe! And I'm still not tired of it yet. Its such an awesome weekend, and I always enjoying taking my youth group down there! No matter how many times I go to the parks, the rides are always fun and exhilarating and makes me so excited!
We spent about 7 hours at Universal on Friday night, and then about 16 hours at both parks on Saturday! It was definitely a long day, but it was totally worth it. The only concert that we actually stood at and "attended" was tobyMac, which was amazing. I've seen him probably about 15 times, and this time I think was one of the best! He's awesome, and I'll always love his music. Some of the others we heard around the park were Tenth Avenue North, Family Force 5, Newsboys, Switchfoot and Reliant K. So much awesomeness.
Also, we didn't lose any kids! Or have any injuries or health issues. Thank the Lord for those blessings!
Unfortunately, I didn't take as many pictures this year as I would have liked to, but here are a few...
On a side note - I was on the verge of getting sick, and it happened a little bit more over the crazy, exhausting weekend. So today I stayed home from work and rested. I'm feeling so much better now, and will be back to my regular schedule tomorrow. But today was great just watching some movies, and a couple episodes of Say Yes to the Dress, while painting my nails. I needed this mental and physical health day, and I'm feeling much better now! Thank the Lord for restful recovery days.
