What we were doing while our fish were brutally massacred, presumably by an electrical surge during the storm

Clapton Is God

Clapton is God. Good first concert for a toddler. I know some of you are probably shaking your head at me and whispering about GAWD how could she bring a TWO YEAR OLD to a ROCK CONCERT! THE NOISE! THE DRUGS! THE STORMS! But I don’t regret it in the slightest. Say what you will.

Before the Darkness... and the Rain

 The whole family, before the 50-something hippies took up residence behind us and the pot-smoking college kids moved in in front. The crowd was really great, overall – a little too excited about the proximity of lightening that could KILL THEM, but pretty great. Lots of families, older parents with their high school and college-age kids, 30 and 40-something parents with their elementary school kids.

Okay. So R was the youngest person there.

And she kept begging to go on stage to “sing and play ditar with Clapton!”

But we didn’t let her.

Peace Out - Christina pointed out the little toddler peace sign!

Peace out dudes. Christina is the one who noticed the little toddler peace sign on my flickr page. I just noticed that I look exhausted and my bra is showing in all the pictures.

R, do you want to go home? NO. STAY HERE.

The rain began about an hour into Clapton’s set. Prior to this picture, R and I were huddled under the poncho, listening to “Wonderful Tonight” and “Layla” as I wondered if we should hit the road. R refused – she wanted to stay. But when the storms began in earnest at the start of the encore, Mom and Dad had to insist on leaving.

And we came home to dead fish. And a flooded kitchen. But hopefully, she’ll remember this for a few months…

    We went to see Tom Petty when I was 8 months pregnant with Noodle. Good idea? Probally not. I imagine she was exposed to more pot then than if she were lighting up herself now, but we all turned out ok :).

    Looks like you had a great time! Good for you.

    What a fantastic memory for her. And if she forgets its a great story and you have pictures. I think Clapton is a perfect ‘first’ concert. And who know what might have happened in you were at home…..maybe not just the fish would have suffered!

  4. Awesome. The outdoors venue seems like a great first concert. We’ve been trying to go to a free one to test Pitter out.

    Wow…Those are really great pics. Kids seem to love those live events, even when you think they won’t. Back in January, I took both my girls to the Stars on Ice thing, and I totally thought we were going to have to leave 5 minutes in. We stayed for almost the whole thing.

    Too bad about those fish…

  6. Oh how fun! You and R are so gorgeous! What a gorgeous family!!
