Concerts in the Park - Crushing on Community

We are fortunate to have quite a few lovely parks in our community. One of my kids' favorite parks (outside of the one we live on, of course) is Scott Park. It was revived a few years ago and the kids beg to go, but it really isn't in our normal routine right now. We were happy to have a lovely excuse to go recently. Our neighbor/friend, Ryan Groff, is lead singer in a band, Elsinore, and they were performing on what his son's third birthday. We adore Oliver (Parker babysits for him on a pretty regular basis so he didn't want to miss celebrating Oliver's birthday and hearing Ryan) and Elsinore so we had to go. It was hot, but so much fun! Someone brought huge boxes, watercolors, hay bails, and other fun things for the kids to play with while they enjoyed the music. Elsinore played some great new songs, but one of the "older" songs close to our hearts was also performed. I don't know if I blogged about it, but we were extras in the video. Blink and you miss us (you can see Josie as the little person between the band members at the end...I'll blog about it soon), but it was a lot of fun.
 A perfect evening!

I was happy the paint was water colors.
Parker and his friend, Nico, also built a cardboard structure.
You are never too old to play with big boxes.

Josie and her friends had lots of fun hiding and running.

I guess one is never too old to get really wet too.
