After a busy week in San Antonio, we spent a relaxing week in Tempe, Arizona.  It's very close to Phoenix.  The weather was nice. We went swimming once, but it was a little too cold to stay in the pool for long.  Although we did get to see some of Tempe, we also lounged around for a lot of the week!  It's been a busy few weeks so the slow pace was a nice change!
Our tour played at ASU's Gammage Auditorium.  The Auditorium was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and was his last design before he passed away. The Gammage is 80 feet high, which is 8 stories tall, and has 3,000 seats.  Our shows were ALL sold out and the audiences were terrific! Sheffield went on as "Chip" for the first time and did a FANTASTIC job.  He had a blast and wasn't nervous at all. To celebrate his awesome achievement, a bunch of us went to "Cookiez" and ate some delicious treats!
Dakota and I have been helping Sheffield with his lines and showing him the ropes of the tour.  For doing a great job at being "older brothers", we won this week's Beauty Award!  We had 5 votes and won "Dinner and a Movie".  We went to Monti's for dinner and saw the movie "Alpha and Omega"!  We also had a fun day at the Arizona Mills Mall, where we ate at the Rainforest Cafe and played some games at Gameworks.
We were also treated to a special intermission presentation by Tommy Bracco.  He taught us some history as he dressed up and gave us facts about Gandhi. It was fun and interesting =)
Next up....my last city on tour...San Diego, California!  Stay tuned!
