Mt. Carmel Band Competition

We headed down to San Diego for a band competition and Matthew watched a movie.

Doug drove and I took pictures.

We had linner at our favorite chinese restaurant and then headed over to the school.

I entered the "count the snakes" in the competition program and won!

Here comes Arcadia!

They did very well - came in 1st place in several areas and even won some sweepstakes awards.

A new way to exit the field and time to enjoy some other bands.

Such amazing shows and SO much hard work. Time for the awards to begin.

Arcadia did GREAT!

As you can see, it was a very foggy night! The leaders of the band present the trophies to the band gathered under the goal posts.

Big group hug and time to celebrate. Angelica left her jeans and jacket in the bus and was FREEZING!

Jennifer was glad she had her coat. Look at all that fog!

A final picture of Matthew jumping in the fog - I think he kinda looks like he's from the movie, "Where the Wild Things Are."
