Kyle and I try to, every now and then, get enough time away from Lennox to have some time for us. As much as we love doing everything with Lennox – sometimes we need a break and go have some fun! We are lucky to have family that loves to babysit Lennox so that we can escape for the day or a night.
So that is exactly what we did Saturday afternoon and I think she had more fun than she would with us anyway! Lennox got to go to her first crawfish boil (she was scared of them!) and she went to the movies to see Rio 2! Fun day for her and she passed out before ever eating her dinner!
While she was having fun, Kyle and I headed to Frisco (about an hour north of us) to check out EdgeFest 24! Edge is an alternative rock radio station here and each year they have a day long music festival. We got great seats and headed out there for the day.
The weather was in the 80’s and hot – but thankfully there was some good wind so we didn’t sweat into a big puddle of nothingness and I was proud to not get a sunburn!!
The festival was great! We got to see a long list of artists but some of my favorites were Switchfoot, Grouplove, Smallpools, Bastile, Beck, The Avett Brothers and Cage the Elephant. Switchfoot makes me think of A Walk to Remember every single time!
GroupLove was great – but I did want to just give the lead singer/guitarist a shower and a new shirt!
Neighbourhood was AWESOME. The lead singer is a great performer – he even jumped off the stage and ran throughout the whole stadium while singing! You never knew where he would pop up singing.
Bastille was great too – they have so many great songs and I think they will continue to be really popular – again, great performers – I would love to see them on tour for a full length show!
Cage the Elephant was on the second stage – which was neat – immediately following one show, the next stage would start-up and you just had to turn around.
Although we were excited to see Beck, I think he was the most disappointing of the whole show. He was so distracted by his microphone cords and you could barely hear him – we left halfway through his show (he was the closing act). They may have missed the mark on that one. Still though – it was fun to see him sing Loser!
So – it was a great day and a great break from Little Miss Attitude. I love you to bits Lennox but sometimes Mommy & Daddy deserve a break! What type of things do you do to get a break together (other than going out to dinner!)?? It’s great to have a break from time to time, do you agree?
