our 4th of july weekend, hooray!

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

We went to Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion show at Tanglewood in the Berkshires.  It's a blast.  Especially when you watch from on stage.  The guests this year were Steele sisters and Chris Thiele and Sara Watkins from Nickel Creek.  Chris's mandolin-playing was especially amazing.  He played this song and had me feeling utterly talentless.  The show was great.  Hurrah!
Me & my shadow enjoyed a full day on the beach too.  Watermelon, sandwiches, crackers and cheese, orange Izzes, cherries... Steve made sure we were fully stocked for a long day and the weather was just right.  The kids are sun-soaked and water-logged and their cheeks are pink with the slightest sunburn.  It's been a good summer to us so far.

  1. this post would have thoroughly confused me as a child, as i was wholly convinced that pregnant women just walked around with pillows under their shirts.

  2. I am the most jealous a human can be. I love Garrison Keillor!! I can't even start my day if I don't hear the Writers Almanac.

    What deal with devil did you make to get on stage tickets?? Just cause, you know, if it was reasonable (ie life of servitude, first born, your soul) I'd like to make it too.

  4. @mellyb, deal with the devil indeed! no, in reality, the kids are related to garrison. it's the cross we have to bear (three times now!).

    @jenni, yes that and that the babies came out the belly button.
