Weekend Update: Country Fest 2013

My weekend started with the most awesome package on my doorstep.  ..

Thanks Chobani!! I have already tried a couple of the flip flavors – and OMG key lime crumble is ah-mazing.

Then, we headed to the Lake, with a quick stop at YUM! for lunch.

And a stop at the grocery store – where we spotted the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile.

Over 4 days we saw: Thompson Square, Miranda Lambert, Gloriana, Hunter Hayes, Montgomery Gentry, Neil McCoy, Little Big Town, Toby Keith and Jason Aldean.

In addition to the concerts, the people watching is the best!

And we got to meet Lauren Bell Bundy who is on Heart of Dixie and is a country singer too. She was super nice.

We also spent time in the lake, went to Eau Claire for the farmer’s market (picked up some lettuce and baba ghanoush and pita chips). Always good to cross something off of the summer to-do list!!

And then went to “the best gyro place ever” per Laura. Smile

And the rest of the weekend was spent on the water. Including Luke’s first boat ride. Smile

  1. Ok that IS the best surprise ever!! I’ve only had a chance to try the almond coco one and loved it…need to see if I can find the others around here soon! You guys had awesome seats for that fest!! I saw Miranda Lambert with my mum last February in Youngstown…she’s great! Definitely one of my favorite country singers 🙂 I hope Luke enjoyed his boat ride! Have a great week, love 🙂

  2. Wow, sounds like a great weekend! We enjoyed lots of Vitamin D and time at the pool with the girls. I also enjoyed an awesome, low-humidity (YAY!) trail run while the girls napped. We don’t get those days very often, so I took advantage!

      OMG – thank goodness, no! It was a stuffed raccoon on someone’s arm. . . and people were petting it. Crazy stuff.
