We managed to avoid the afternoon thunderstorms that plagued us last year, and spent 8-9 hours outside every day. Coming home after that to iPads and video games feels like a letdown to me. The kids are super excited for online play, where I’m ready to move to the woods!
I will always love outdoor concerts more, but this AJR event was so exactly what we needed too. The kids’ first official concert that wasn’t bringing a blanket somewhere to ostensibly listen to music near a playground.
A week away, breathing and swimming in the mountain air, with our a 500-square-foot rustic cabin to hide in from the hail equals some pretty zen kids and parents.
