One thing I looked forward to when we found out we were moving to Connecticut was living in the same state as a favorite band of mine, Mates of State. They're semi-retired these days, but they still play local shows, and I've been hoping for a chance to see them.
So when I found out there was going to be a family-friendly music festival with the Mates included, I was so excited!
There were food trucks and bounce houses and you know what? We had a REALLY good time.
Niko didn't want a selfie, so we made silly faces, and then he laughed.
I had fun joining a handful of other Mates of State fans in dancing at the front. It was less awkward when Miri joined me, but I had fun all the same.
It was fun to introduce the kids to music that Jesse and I have liked since before we were married. I think they really enjoyed their first rock concert!
