another wednesday night sunset beach concert series

last week we attempted another summer concert at the peninsula. Abbey Road & String Theory were playing. If you remember the week before we went out with Adam & Camille and it was beautiful weather. There were tons of kids playing in the water, families eating dinner around their picnic baskets, kids building sand castles {and digging holes to china}.. and people were even laying out.

This week was a little different.. thanks to the weather in Erie. It was cold! Yes, in the middle of June we had fleeces on and were doing everything we could to bundle up. How crazy is that? Im not lying! We even ended up leaving early because we didnt plan on it being that cold. I should note, its because of the wind that it was so freakishly cold. Were not really that big of wimps! As soon as we left it wasnt half as cold..

Note the people below in jackets:

Freeland sad because it was so windy and we didnt really care about pulling out all of the food we brought with us:
The band. They are a Beatles cover band. It was great music.

Please look at this and laugh with me. Do you all see the humor in this photo?? It was insane. One family bundled up.. another group of friends in 2 pieces playing in the water?! Im sure these girls thought they were very cool for being so brave. Im also sure everyone else thought they were crazy & going to catch pneumonia.

We are quickly learning the weather in Erie cannot be predicted. I will say not matter what the weather is - its way better than a Texas summer for sure!

  2. when you live here, you have to expect the worse and then layer down if it happens to be warmer than expected. it's cruel.

  5. Actually, the ladies in the water were probably warmer than everyone bundled up on the beach, since the lake is warmer than the air was on Wednesday, and there's no wind under the water

  7. Sounds like you guys are having a great time in Erie! And thank you so much for your comment and all the great information! We have done meds, but not where they put it directly in there like you said. Im going to ask my vet about that when we go in next week. I greatly appreciate it because my friend Sarah, who wrote the other comment, said her friend's dog died being put to sleep - no thank you! So thanks for the good info - you were a HUGE help!
