Won't You Take Me to Phunkytown??

This post is a little belated, but it was my favorite weekend of the summer so far.

On July 3rd, we joined our friends Lori and Will (and our new friend Katie) at the new Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Alpharetta to see...

This was our 7th Phish show together, and we had a blast! They even started the first set with my favorite song, Character Zero. It has been about 3 years since we saw them last so I was really excited about this concert!

When you can't see Bryan's eyes, you know he's really excited!

I will admit, I did not take to Phish right away. When Bryan and I met, he was convinced that all he had to do was immerse me in about a million live Phish recordings and I would love it. Nope.

Finally, he bought me the Billy Breathes album. I fell in love. In fact, the song that we danced to at our wedding, Waste, is on this album. About 3 months after I learned to love Phish I saw my first show. I was hooked - the lights, the dancing, the happy energy, every single minute. It's a 3-4 hour "mountain top experience." Can you tell I like it? :)

I might have a teensy-weensy crush on him.

It was a fabulous night!! They played lots of our favorite songs, we both got to boogie and we got our "music fix" until the next time.


July 4th was spent with our newlywed friends - The Burlesons! I forgot to bring my camera, so I stole these from Sherry's FB page. :)

Bryan loves to Bocce!

We played cornhole for the first time and Bryan taught the crew how to play Bocce. The boys grilled brats and burgers and once it got dark we lit a few fireworks and sparklers. (No worries Mama and Mom - we were totally supervised by a firefighter.)

The Burlesons:
Christina and Ron (the very responsible firefighter)

I loved having a whole weekend with my sweet boy.
