The concert didn't start until 2pm but I had heard that it fills up very quickly (it was a FREE concert..) so we headed out at about 10:30 with bagels and coffee in hand and just planned on making a day out of it!. It turned out to be absolutely perfect... hot and sunny, amazing music, packed crowd and a perfect spot right up front. Not to mention the absolute beauty of the place itself...but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves..
The amazing orchestra!
It was a packed house
A stroll through the grove..
Adorable club house..
The fog had rolled in at the very end...so here we are bundled and on our way out after an impressive show!
It was a perfect day, I loved the patriotic music, the great crowd, wonderful picnic lunch and spending the day in the sun with the one I love. Even after living here for 3 years and practically growing up right outside of the city it always amazes me that there is still so much more to discover, like the beautiful grove and the FREE summer concerts that they hold..it's nice to stay in the city but feel like you are somewhere far away from the hustle and bustle. I will definitely be attending other events such as the ballet in a few weeks! On another note this weekend marked the ONE year anniversary of Mr. Jones and I moving in together...it's funny to think that a year ago we were running all over town and up until the wee hours moving and unpacking...this year was much more relaxing and we were able to enjoy the fireworks show from our balcony again... love our home and that man. Hope everyone else had a happy and safe fourth! Can't wait to read all about em!
