Way to go Columbia!

We had a blast on Saturday night at a free concert series put on by the city and held at a big park in downtown Columbia. We met up with some friends from our playgroup. The kids ran around while the parents chatted and listened to reggae music blaring from the stage. It was blazing hot but so great to see so many people out and enjoying themselves together. I was actually surprised to see the diversity in the crowd. Lots of families, singles and older maybe retired people. There were nicely dressed typical Columbia socialites sitting 10 feet from the scummy old guys who yelled "hey baby" when I walked by. (there is a story that goes with that and I actually caught it on video and will post later.) We stayed till the end (10pm) to see fireworks show. I was talking to another mother in the crowd who has been going to the series for several years and she said that this is one of the best things that Columbia spends its tax dollars on and one of her favorite things about the town. Way to go Columbia!

This is a picture of Daniel and his naked face with Ellen watching fireworks.
