Doctors In Concert

Saturday night’s date night was unlike John and my typical night out, thanks to my brother Matt and his girlfriend, Meredith.

For Elijah’s birthday, Matt and Meredith gave us tickets to Doctor’s in Concert. This event was a fundraiser for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. In addition to a gift close to our hearts, Matt and Meredith arranged their schedules to babysit Elijah while we attended the concert. In fact, they encouraged us to be gone as long as was wanted and they spent the night.

From the snaps I received, it was obvious Elijah loved time with these two chasing him around the house.

For us, our evening started with a reception at the Coralville Performing Arts Center before the concert. The show was put on by doctors at the university, and the event was hosted by Kirk Ferentz and his wife, Mary. Acts included anything from the University Faculty Pep Band to solo piano and vocal performances. Talk about talent!

Intermission included Scratch cupcakes, AND we made a detour to Hurts Donuts- Open 25 hours a day! just down the hallway of the performance center.

After a rough teaching week, it was just the escape I needed in every way.

  1. Great way to spend out Saturday evening! Of course finish it with some donuts to share with him was a great ending! Thanks for letting us take him!
