Yesterday, Willow and I took a brief trip to Platteville, Wisconsin to see Lukas play in the University jazz band. He is the pianist for the band and this was my first opportunity to see him finally show off his talent. Since Willow had nothing better to do that evening, she asked if she could join me for the trip. It was a four hour drive to Platteville from Steinthal thanks to the Madison rush-hour traffic, but we were able to get there in time to see the concert which started at 7:30 PM.

Luke’s friends watched Willow for the 2 hour concert and I was blown away by the talent I heard! It was certainly worth the trip, even though my stay had to be brief. The drive home was only three hours, but we didn’t get home until 12:30 this morning. Needless to say, Willow and I are a little tired.Luckily my work starts from 3 PM to 11 PM so I have a little time to get caught up on sleep. Regardless, she did fantastic on the trip and we were even able to stop over in Madison and get a few more pet supplies while in route.

Below you can listen to the entire unedited concert I recorded.

Willow is ready to go!  Took about 10 minutes for her to realize I was not going to let her sit in my lap the entire trip..

This is what I looked at most of the time during the drive..

Luke’s friends were VERY gracious to watch her during the concert!

A quick shot I took after the end of the concert!  It was truly FANTASTIC!  Luke is on the far left..
