   August 4th, 2009 was the best day of my life.  I woke up at six o’ clock in the morning and was ready for my trip to Sacremento, California by seven.  My parents and I left the house at eight, and we picked up my friend Sydney.  We were so excited to go see the Jonas Brothers in concert for the first time ever!  The entire 4 hour trip, much to my parents dismay, was filled with terrible Jonas Brother cover songs courtesy of Sydney and I.  We finally reached the Arco Arena at one in the afternoon, only six hours before the concert.  My parents dropped us off and all Sydney and I could think about was seeing our idols for the first time ever.  However, we encountered a problem.  We could not find the entrance to the arena.  We had never been to this area before and of course we were the first people to arrive for the concert.  Finally, after an hour of walking around in circles, a miracle happened.  Sydney and I found the famous Jonas Brother tour bus.  We rushed over and took as many pictures with it as we could.  Then out of the blue, one of the tour managers found us and gave us two tickets to the soundcheck before the show! We were completely thrilled and ran into the newly formed line of people.  There was still two hours until the concert, and I believe everyone waiting to get in began to lose their minds.  Nearly 18,000 people started chanting Jonas! Jonas! Jonas! over and over againg.  Strangely enough, me and Sydney felt right at home.  We finally got into the soundcheck and watched our favorite people in the world practice their songs.  Everyone else started entering the Arco Arena and the atmosphere of the whole place began one of anticipation and excitement.  The opening bands finished and all the lights went out.  The Jonas Brothers jumped onto the stage and the whole arena was lit up by cameras and screaming girls.  It was at that moment that me and Sydney realized we were actually breathing the same air as Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas.  Throughout the whole concert, we were jumping up and down and screaming our hearts out.  By the time it was over and my parents picked us up, neither Sydney nor I could speak.  It was an absolutely amazing feeling.  Of course, on the way home we listened to every song they played at the concert.  Slowly, we gained enough of our voices back to re-create the best night of our lives.  Words cannot descibe how incredible this trip was for Sydney and I. We will never forget the feeling of accomplishment and pure joy we had on this trip.
