Jack's Parents Take a Weekend Off

Friday, October 8, 2010

Well, we're not taking a week of from being parents.  That's a lifetime job.  But we are taking a weekend off.  Durel and I are headed to the Austin City Limits Music Festival, aka ACL.  This year, we're excited to see Vampire Weekend, Muse, Flaming Lips, MIA, Spoon, Silversun Pickups, and countless other bands that I either can't remember or we haven't yet discovered.



We're ridiculously excited, for a variety of reasons:  a three day music festival with eight stages, hundreds of bands, all of the fun food and drink you could imagine, great weather, good friends, and uh...no baby.

In fact, this is almost a tradition for us.  Here's a little flashback to us, pre-Jack, at ACL in 2008:


And in 2007:


In fact, I've even opined on the etiquette of festivals (which sounds snooty but is actually quite practical).

Anyway, enough typing.  Time for ACL-ing.

Hope this finds you well,

  1. Do they make "My parents partied at ACL and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" in wee sizes?

    Have a blast, wear your sunscreen.
