A few years ago, Puff and I found out that Asheville, NC, was hosting a weekly bluegrass concert (free!!!) in a beautiful park smack in the middle of downtown. It's called Shindig on the Green.
Puff and I made it a date night, complete with dinner at Tupelo Honey (ohmigodthosebiscuits) and listened to a little music, while enjoying a gorgeous night out. Now, mind you, bluegrass isn't really my thing, but Puff enjoys it, and I just enjoy being out and being entertained.
Bimmer threw a wrench into our plans last summer, since she was still so little and I was worried it would be too much (and too hot) for her.
And we almost missed it this summer too! But on a whim, we decided the Saturday of Labor Day weekend (the last concert of the summer) that we would make the trek.
Puff envisioned dancing with the baby and then having her sit still on his lap to listen to the music. Ha! What a rookie move.
I ended up spending most of the 90 minutes we were there, at the back of the lawn letting her run around with other kids. (She did stop and bend down to give a baby a hug at one point... melted my heart!) But she did a little bit of dancing and with perfect weather, we couldn't have asked for much more. I'm sure we'll give it a go again next year, and hopefully she'll be more interested in sitting still.
