Dad's b-day present

Which isn't until December, his b-day is in November, but the tickets were going to sell out way too quickly so I had to get them tonight. Bubba's favorite living conductor/violinist is Andre Rieu. I like him a lot too and have some of his CDs on my iPod for when I have to take Bubba to appointments because he can't stand j-pop. So, anyway, a couple of years ago my Mum thought it would be cool to take Bubba to a concert, but the tickets were over $300 each and there was no way we could afford it.
Bubba just found out that Andre Rieu is going to do an American tour this year. I went to his web page and checked to see what was going on and, I was shocked to see, he's going to be in Seattle (an hour plane flight away from us) in December and the tickets were not only on pre-sale, the lower arena seats were only $100 each! I ran downstairs and asked Mum if I could use her credit card and I would pay her back. For it being so cheap, she agreed.
So my Dad and either my mum or I (two tickets) are going to get to see Andre Rieu in December. I can't wait to see Bubba's face when he gets the tickets for his birthday!!! It's going to be so cool. This is like the ultimate present for him. And I'm kinda hoping I get to go with him because it would be a fun show to go to - even if I do have to dress up for it. I hate shopping for clothes, but I have no winter formals.
Mum's part of the present is airline tickets and hotel rooms for the trip. Yay, can't wait. *does little dance*
