Gettysburg Bluegrass - Tony's Birthday party

This past weekend we accomplished a very nice relaxing weekend.  On Saturday, Anna went to her elementary school for a Boardwalk party.  
I hung out with the kids at home, mowed the grass, chilled out.  It was very relaxing.

Sunday all the family came up for cousin Tony's first birthday party.  Sam and PJ went up with Mom and they all had a great time.  Anna and Dad, however, had a different agenda.  Getting up early, they hit the road at 8AM, and bet feet up to Granite Hill Campground in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania for the 52nd annual Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival.  GBF is a more traditional festival, with lots of Gospel and old-timey bluegrass, and we stayed the whole day.  The weather was a little cold, and very windy, but it didn't rain.

We got to see Dry Branch Fire Squad, and the Lewis Brothers, and Shiloh, and the Seldom Scene finished off the day by Four PM, which allowed us to make it home in time for dinner.  Very enjoyable.   I look forward to when we take the whole family to these things, and stay for three four days and not just one.
