"Come on DOOOWWWNN!!!"

That's right ladies and gentelmen! Rich Fields most certainly is a great announcer! We headed down to the Price is Right (all 19 of us!!) yesterday to do some serious game-showing. We had a total BLAST!!! I had been wanting to go for years. While activities director in the singles ward like 4 years ago I actually planned a trip for our ward back when Bob was still on, but the day before the coordinator called me cancelling the show because Bob was sick. DARN-IT! I was so totally sad! So, feeling the urgent need to win some anti-debt money, we went for it.
I have such great friends and family. I'm so glad everyone came, it was so much fun. We all came pretty prepared to wait for 3+ hours in line. We played Yahtzee, Phase 10...others listenened to music, read or chatted....as seen below.


You must admit we have some pretty sweet shirts!!

The above picture was MOST of us waiting for our friend "Mark David", as he was called to "come on down". He was the last contestant to be called down, so he had just ONE chance to get up on stage. Unfortunately he didn't up, but did get a consolation prize. The below pic is of him coming out. His wife Mariah was obviously ecstatic about seeing him!

I was quite surprised at how totally tiny the studio was. I figured it would be a little smaller than what I imagined, but it was A LOT smaller. Drew Carrey is a cool guy telling jokes and talking to audience members inbetween games. He's no Bob- but he was a pretty good replacement.

All in all it was fabulously fun trip and a must-do in my book of things to do in my life. CHECK!!!

Wow, that looks like a ton of fun! What other shows are you going to go to? I'd love to go to Price Is Right someday too, but I don't really watch it much anymore since Bob is gone. Drew Carrey is not such a great replacement, in my book. But it would be awesome to be there live!
