We Have Festivaled

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Phew.  We did it.  We, the full-time working parents of a seven month old baby, survived ACL.

Wait, you say.  Isn't this premature?  It's a three day festival, right?

Yes, it is.  But we are only two day festivalers this year.  We've thrown in the towel, and are feeling quite good about it.

In our defense, our babysitters have returned to Houston and we don't have sound-blocking headphones for Jack.  So it would be hard to go to ACL today.  But in truth, we're tired and dehydrated and feeling quite good about having a day of weekend left to recuperate.

That said, it was awesome.  Day 1 highlights:  The Sword (local hard rock band; Durel's choice); Vampire Weekend (love them); Spoon; The Strokes, and Phish.


My favorite moments from Friday?  Realizing how light and unencumbered I feel with a small purse, no diaper bag, and no baby carrier; the chicken and avocado cone; Vampire Weekend, and The Strokes.

Day 2 highlights:  Mayer Hawthorne & The County; Broken Bells; sloppy nachos from the Salt Lick (chips drenched in queso, shredded brisket, and jalapenos).


Day 2 highlights:  those nachos, and realizing how happy we would be to get home to our sweet boy.

We came, we saw, we festivaled.

Hope this finds you well.
