Meet Toby Mac!!!

I have so much catching up to do.  It’s been a bit crazy around the Rooney household this week.  Michael was out of town for a majority of the week, which always makes things a bit more hectic.  And on Wednesday I was asked to cover an event for a local radio station.  It was a great opportunity and I was honored to be chosen.  But after taking over 900 photos I’ve been super busy trying to get everything edited before Monday! I’ll try to post more about that later.

On Wednesday, February 10th Mason turned eleven years old.  The following day the record-breaking snow storm hit DFW.  It was also the day that Toby Mac came to town and was meeting fans at the Chick-fil-A in Mckinney.  I was crazy enough to go get Mason out of school and surprise him by taking him to meet his FAVOIRTE music artist!

He was THRILLED beyond words.  And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE surprising my kids with something beyond their wildest imagination! We had so much fun together!  The ride up there  looked like this…


Over an hour later we arrived at the Chick-fil-A and the lines outside looked like this…



We finally made it inside and we got to see…


Toby Mac was extremely polite!  He asked Mason if his mom let him skip school to come meet him.  And I explained that the day before was Mason’s birthday and this was a huge “gift” to him.  Turns out that Toby Mac’s son just recently turned eleven also.  He spent some time talking with Mason and made a point to make his visit with him very special.

While we were in line waiting, some of the KLTY staff were explaining the process and made it quite clear that he would not be able to take the time to take individual pictures.  But due to the “birthday boy” he told me to “start shooting”.  (He also made a reference that judging by the camera and lens I was using I’d probably had a “little” practice taking snapshots!!)



Thank you Toby Mac for an incredible birthday gift that my son will NEVER forget!!  And if you have a chance, check out his new CD.  I really enjoyed some of his songs.  There’s even a few with a Jamaican flare!!!


  1. That is so cool! What an incredible surprise for you son. My girls are T-Mac fans too. Your photos were incredible. Blessings to you!

  2. Toby is awesome! Even though I'm in Texas I still like to hear a blast of his music everyday.I wish he would come to a chick-fill-a here ,(even though I don't like its food). Anyway he is awesome.
