Weekend Recap

This past weekend we went to the fairground for a concert. The concert started at 2 pm. It was so hot and the sun was beating down but it actually felt nice, to me. We brought the camper to the concert even though we live less than half a mile away. My brother and his girlfriend stayed in his camper and we had several other friends show up.

The concert was awesome. There weren't very many people at the concert (as in less than 200) so it was easy to get a good view of the stage. We went to do three things: watch Back Porch Mary, drink some beer, and get a Back Porch Mary t-shirt, as they are not available online. We succeeded in all three.



I'm not sure if any of you have ever heard of or listened to Back Porch Mary. I did a "What's on my iPod?" and featured them here. They put on an amazing show and are one of the few REAL bands of musicians I have had the pleasure of seeing lately. I was even more impressed with their performance this time, than the first time I saw them.



The last band to play that night was Jason Boland in the Stragglers. My husband really digs them. They are good but maybe a little slow for my taste. I would have rather seen them earlier in the day.

All in all, it was a great time and I'm hoping this concert happens again next year.

Sunday morning we woke up in the camper and were sweating our asses off. The air conditioner had broke and it was the hottest day of the year, thus far. We were probably still legally intoxicated had to abandon ship and go home. We went back and got the camper once we had recovered from the insane amount of alcohol we had drank the day before heat exhaustion.

No worries, we got a new AC last night for a hundred bucks and my dad is putting it in tomorrow night. While we were at Wal-Mart, we also picked up one of these:

I anticipate doing a lot of this, this summer:

Hope you all had a great week!
