We got in line at 10:00 Monday morning and were basically at the front of the line. We couldn't believe that we among the first to arrive - but the line quickly got longer! The doors opened at 12:00, so we were ushered through security and found our place to stand during the rally - which was RIGHT in front of Sarah Palin and in the second row!! We had an awesome view!
The long line
Some ladies showed up in hockey jerseys - when Sarah came out, she pointed at them and laughed. They thought that was very cool!
Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley had the amazing privilege to introduce Sarah Palin
SHE'S HERE!! The crowd went ballistic!
Hank Williams Jr. was there!!! The crowd went wild when Sarah introduced him! He led us in the National Anthem and then sang "McCain-Palin Tradition" (click here to hear). It was so much fun!
This is not zooming up - this is how close we were to her! We all got to shake her hand!!! She even touched Nikki's buttons on her shirt and said she liked them!
We got to shake Todd Palin's hand too!
Nikki got her picture with Hank Williams Jr.! She was so excited!
This lady made this great Sarah Palin hat!
As for an update on revivals, Dad and Deanna have had an interesting past two days in North Dakota. They left LaMoure on Thursday, heading north to Kenmare, when they were forced to stop in Bismark because of bad weather. So they were snowbound in Bismark for two nights. The revival in Kenmare was supposed to start last night, but they had to postpone. Dad and Deanna were able to able to leave Bismark this morning and arrived safely in Kenmare, where they were able to start the revival meeting tonight. :)
