The Simmons Family

To day we had a great family outing. Patty, Ben, Dante and I were in Langford at the casino to see Gene Simmons and his family. We got there around 9:30AM and got into a shorter than expected line up. Patty made a new friend with a woman in front of us in line that lives in Duncan. Dante made friends with everyone. It was such a nice day so good thing we got Dante's hair cut yesterday. His KISS tee shirt that Patty made for him probably kept him a little warm but we had lots of cold water and I took him for lots of walks to a shady cool area.

The event was running about an hour late but everyone in the crowd was taking it good. It was supposed to start at 12:00 but apparently they were stuck in traffic. They had a magician and held some contests then they had some KISS karaoke. Some 7 year old got up and stole the show. When they finally arrived Ben and I tried to gey closer to get a better look. There were tons of ppl so Ben climbed up on a railing and I handed him my camera and went back to the line with Patty and Christa. Thanks to Ben who got some nice shots especially the one of Shanon's butt!!

Once the line got moving it moved real fast. There were no autographs allowed and they took the picture for you and gave you a web site to retrieve the photo to download. When we got to the front of the line the guy asked us Dante's name then when it was our turn he said Dante take your family up. He then walked over and told Sophie to look at what we had and her and Shanon both went awwww and started to pet Dante then Sophie actually held Dante. Their photographer took a photo or two. Then when Ben got to Gene with Dante, Gene got down close to Dante talking like he was Talking to a baby and touching Dante's whiskers going ooooh you got a mustache don't you puppy your so cute. They took a picture of that too so hopefully they post them with our family shot and when we get them I'll post them here.

I have to say that they are one good looking Family Gene is even better looking in person and oh so friendly. You don't get much time but they all shake your hand and say hello and smile like they mean it. Was a long time in the sun but very worth it. Would do it again in a heart beat!
