It's a Wiggly party.......

We won tickets to see the wiggles. It was fun lots of energy Jeff was not there he had Heart surgery so Brad was in his place. 
Lil O showed some excitement to seem the Real guys on stage, Ri well not to excited but at least he had a smile on his face and then my Si guy was all smile and giggles and was clapping along trying to sing.
