Charlie is brilliant

Jul 29, 2011

I swear this dog is a genius.

After surviving yet another rotation (2 down, 10 to go!), I'm headed to Dallas for a weekend with my two favorite boys :)

Hooray for In-N-Out and Top Golf!

Roadtrip to Rothbury Part 2: Rothbury Music Festival

Jul 28, 2011

 Once we pulled up to the campsite/field/parking lot, we asked a worker where to go and his first words were "Here's the scoopsickle"
. . . with a totally stoner/SoCal/surfer accent
That one statement pretty much set the tone for the entire weekend.

Watch the video I filmed of the infamous monkeys!

Oh you know . . . just a morning yoga sesh.

Couldn't do without the 'ol canteen.

Damien Marley

Snoop with his gin & juice

Sherwood forest in the day . . . 

Sherwood forest at night . . .

We were so excited to be celebrating our 1 year and a half anniversary on the 4th of July!
Ohhhhh how times have changed . . .

Holdin down the fort on the front row for DMB
Oh how times have changed . . . again

Citizen Cope

Makin a "Get Well Soon" Sign for Leroi

Thomas couldn't hang . . .

I won an award!

This was our first time to see Michael Franti and we fell in love.
He is one of the best entertainers we have ever seen!
SO much energy!

Dave shocked everyone by randomly hoppin on stage for a little dance party

Then Michael Franti shocked us by hoppin the fence into our chair!
He broke my chair and I'm pretty pissed about it.
Around the 8 second mark, you may see Michael's fingers intertwined in someone elses fingers . . .
Him and Jose had a moment :)

I caught Dave's two minute crazy dance on video . . . check it out below

To our complete surprise, Josh AND Bart both caught drumsticks!
I guess the sign worked . . .

Day 3:
Brett Dennen.

Anything works to stay in the shade.

Trey Anastasio from Phish

Colbie Callait and her hottie guitar player

John Mayer

I think he was bitter than he wasn't on the main stage, because his set list was average.
He did cover George Harrison's "My Sweet Lord" though, which was delightful.

JM guitar pick number two!

Roadtrip to Rothbury Part 1: St. Louis and Chicago

Jul 27, 2011

Back in 2007 (whoaaaaaaaaaaaa) Josh and I first heard about the Rothbury Music Festival.
It wasn't until 4th of July weekend in 2008, but we knew we had to go.
The lineup was insane and the location was amazing
 . . . it was only a 23 hour drive to Michigan.
At the time, it was our longest road trip yet but we were determined to do it.
We started saving & mapped out the drive so that we could make some pretty cool stops along the way.

It turned out to be one of the best experiences ever . . . and the start of our music festival addiction.

We saved $540 in pure change . . . which all went towards the gas.

AHHHHHHHHHHh short hair!

We drove all night and made it to St. Louis for breakfast and a quick ride up the arch!

Riding the rickety womb like elevator up the arch with 4 little boys was definitely an experience.

I love Bart, can't you tell? 
I think it's just his sleeveless tees that turn me on.

Once we arrived at our hotel in Chicago, we had to check out the supposed "World's Longest Bar"
Not so sure about that . . . 

I was SO Sex & the City

Off to do some touristy sight seeing . . .

We found this neat-o fountain that projected random faces of different Chicago citizens every few minutes . . . all the while shooting water from their mouths.
. . . and they blinked.

The boys named this stage "The Whirlygig"

Grant Park

The Bean!

The start of a terrible tradition . . .

Terrifying cab ride

The Sears Tower

View from the Sears Tower

Always the goob

There are no words for this picture

Quick dinner at Big Boy Burger before our arrival to the festival 

Check back later for Part 2 . . .
