Sunday night we traveled to Davidson for Concerts on the Lawn. We go to see the Band of Oz every year. They play on the large lawn in front of the Davidson College Library.
Surprisingly enough, food is not the number one reason that we have a great time. It's the dancing! The Band of Oz is a great beach music band. My mom and sister were visiting cousin Will in Alabama, so Anna Jane got dance-partner-Papa all to herself!
This is at the very beginning of the show. As the crowd loosened up, the dance floor was packed!
The boys were not quite sure about dancing smack dab in between the band and a large crowd of people, though Henry had his bounce down pat.
Once we got back to our picnic blanket, Wilson picked up his air guitar and started rocking out.
The show is always a blast, but this year was very exciting for me. My good friend Heather and her new husband Brad joined us. Here is one of 15 shots of Heather that Anna Jane took with my camera.
And here is Brad.
No, wait. Here is Brad.
But really, either one of these men would be a great catch. Brad was very sweet and Dave and I both liked him a lot.
And the 92 year old dancing in the first photo danced all night long. And at the end of the show as we were all lugging our coolers back to our cars, he looked much less worn out than the rest of us did!
And now to the food!! Papa produced a fabulous portable picnic table and I covered it with snacks.
Henry enjoyed spinach dip on the end of a breadstick.
And lots of fruit.
Wilson carved the watermelon.
And Anna Jane caught up on business while the band took a little break.
By the end of the night we were all full of food and singing and dancing. Great memories.
Can't wait till next year! In the meantime, keep rockin!
My dad's fraternity buddy, Bill Bowman, sponsors the show every year. And since he told me that he loves the blog, I had to include a pic!
