Erie Blues & Jazz Fest

the park next to us has an annual blues & jazz fest. We went last year and loved it. So Freeland was pretty much counting down the days to this years festival. And he wanted to make sure we were able to go for as much of it as possible.

Here are some pictures from the weekend we spent out at the park.

like I said, we were in the back. People set up tents (and camp out? maybe?) but they grill out all day long, play games, make friends, and listen to music. So Freeland set up a tent for us (so River had shade) and we enjoyed all day Sat & Sun eating and listening to music with Brian & his wife Elizabeth (and their sweet daughter):

Then Freeland followed Adam & Henry's lead and took River down to the creek:
