We may have been far from the stage, but everyone around us still had a great time at last Friday’s concert. And tickets were $10 – you can’t beat that!
This is one of my favorite photos from the Winter Jam concert Friday night. I loved everything about the concert – the cheap tickets, the message, the music. More photos to come!
This weekend my husband and I went to the Great Midwest Balloon Fest with our families. I went to the balloon fest a couple of years ago, but it’s gotten huge with 50+ competing hot air balloons, many thousands of attendees, and a Clay Walker concert. it’s no big surprise I couldn’t pick a favorite photo. Can you?
I had a semi-relaxing Labor Day yesterday … or at least I didn’t have anything officially planned. After grocery shopping, grilling, and shopping at an outdoor mall, Jerod and I met my parents for the Kansas City Symphony’s Pops in the Park concert. Perfect temps and sunny skies made for a very beautiful and crowded concert. Beforehand kids got to experience the “instrument petting zoo” and try out a variety of musical instruments. After 13 years in band, I’ve never even played a bassoon!
… but she’s still famous, at least for Kansas City! Last night we had the pleasure of watching Ida McBeth perform at the Zona Rosa Jazz on the Square concert series. Ida McBeth is a renowned performer at the Blue Room, and I can see why. She has such a strong, full voice, and she’s just full of spirit and energy! I couldn’t pick just one photo. Which is your favorite?
By the way, I do have a friend who was lucky enough to photograph the president when he came to Joplin this spring after the tornado.
This summer, Platte Woods United Methodist hosted “Hot August Nites” – three Wednesday evening jazz concerts with free ice cream. The Beach Nuts, featuring the famous Walter Bryant, entertained us last night. They were both nutty and talented. 🙂
