Concert in the Park

emily - 2003


Last night we took a blanket and some sweatshirts and headed to the park to see Montgomery Gentry (country) and Bowling for Soup (alternative rock) perform live. For free!

All week we've noticed big things being set up at the field across from the commisary - trailers and speakers and a tower and lights and a big huge stage. It was kind of exciting.

It wasn't as crowded and crazy as I had imagined. We had room to spread out our stuff and room to dance. And we danced!
Lucky for me, before we moved to Hawaii we lived in Texas and South Dakota where country music is all over the radio, so I knew some of the songs. Did I mention that this was my first ever actual concert? (but not my last. next up Jack Johnson)

I did not bring Nathan's big fancy camera, as I was worried that it would be too much for me to keep it safe and keep the kids safe at the same time. So no photos.

Sorry about that. But in honor of Mr. Montgomery and Mr. Gentry I found some cowgirl photos to entertain you with from our brief stint in Tejas! (Abilene, TX, 2003)

blue star card is easy... take your hubbys deployment orders and go over to acs. they'll do it for you right there on the spot. You can also register online.. either way you have to pick it up at ASC. If you have any other questions let me know.=o)
