When Harry ('s daughters) Met Luke...

So I have a funny Luke story for you. I wrote this to Patrick but thought it was too funny not to share with more people....

We were is Sundance over the weekend to get the boat ready and visit Courtney, Josh and Little Lu. Saturday night we went to a new restaurant in the the Riverwoods shopping center called La Jolla Groves. We had a nice dinner with Samantha and her fiance Chad (they are officially engaged!) and Daniel and Natalie. The food was good, you will have to try it when you get home. So after dinner we are standing out front because there was a 'battle of the bands' going on. Then Harry Connick Jr, his Victorias Secret model wife, Jill Goodacre and their daughters walk by. I looove Harry, we saw him in concert at the Hollywood Bowl a few months ago and it was my favorite show ever. Well they were seated in the restaurant right by a big plate glass window. We were on the other side of the big window listening to music, talking and playing with the baby when Courtney said "Luke Harry's daughters are checking you out" so of course Luke starts talking about he is going to go in and walk up to the table and hit on the girls right in front of their dad. Which then got offers of money on the table from dad and Josh to do so... we walked all the way to the car with them trying to get Luke to do it with "wussy" talk and offers of money when Luke finally says "I'm gonna do it!" So we all start walking back to the restaurant. The whole way there Luke is 'warming up'... literally. He was swinging his arms like he was getting ready for an athletic event, breathing deeply and kept rehearsing what he was going to say. We were all laughing hard...I had tears.

So we get back to the restaurant and we try to act nonchalant while positioning ourselves to have a good view of the window but not have it obvious we were watching. I separated myself from the group and tried to film as inconspicuously as possible with my phone when a man is suddenly standing next to me talking on his phone and I look up and Harry Connick Jr is two feet from me as I try to film his family.... oops... I don't think he caught on and I skidaddled... so no photo documentation darn it!!! So Luke walks up to the table... we watch him chat, squirm and out he comes. He says he walked up (and was so glad the dad had stepped outside) and he says "So girls I saw you and think you are really cute and was wondering if I could get your number and maybe we could go do something sometime." He says the girls all looked sort of confused and one says "Well we are from Connecticut." He says the mom was really sweet and tries to make him comfortable by making small talk. She says "Oh this is sooo cute" and tried to make a little conversation and then says "Oh were you out there with that darling little baby?" at which time Luke realized the girls were not looking at him at all, but had been looking at Lucy!!!! Hilarious. So he says "Okay see ya!" and leaves.... Ha! But that is not the end. Dad, watching through the windows ays "Oh Luke the girls are getting a lecture from their mom" and before we can blink the oldest (who it turns out was only 15) is outside with us and says "I am sorry, I am afraid I came off as rude. I am Georgia , ..." then she makes small talk, shakes our hands, explains that she did not intend to be rude and that she is from the east coast and blah blah... so long story short, it was hilarious and Luke made $30 and got no numbers! But it' s a great story he can tell his friends.. I mean how many boys can say a Victoria's Secret Model actually spoke to them?!

I love this! Tyler won't even need a part time job if Steve is going to pay up for this kind of stuff! Hopefully the girls look like mom and sing like dad.

Way to go Luke! I bet they don't even live in Connecticut, nor is her real name Georgia. ;) She was probably just wooed by your good looks and started blurting out the names of random states.
