HELLOOOOO! WE'RE ALIVE!!!!
Oh my goodness. WHAT a ridiculous couple of days. Josh and I are still deep in recovery mode... which has involved a lot of naps, greasy food and movie marathons while snuggling our girl. It feels so good to be reunited!!! I missed her so much!!!
The shows were phenomenal. So many talented folks in this world! A few of my favorites were Johnnyswim, Young the Giant, Misterwives, Grouplove, Parade of Lights and Bronze Radio Return. Out of over 120 shows I managed to make it to 18. My feet are still bruised and my sunburn is out of control... but it was so worth it!
Other great attractions were the hammock hangouts, which provided some serious shade and relaxation relief, and the silent disco... which was one of my favorite parts of the whole trip. They give each person a set of headphones and DJs play for you. You can't hear anything without the headphones on except the crowd singing. So many dance offs... my inner wannabe back up dancer was so pleased.
But I think the best part was when some of our sweet pals surprised us with a giant blown up poster of Hadley's face. It's become tradition (and necessary for survival) to bring in large posters so you can easily find your group at the seriously crowded concerts. We brought Hadley in and she saved so many of us from being lost for hours! I think some people were completely weirded out by seeing a giant baby face among so much debauchery but most were asking about her and telling us such nice things.
It was so cool!
After 5 days and 4 nights of sleeping on a half deflated air mattress, eating hot dogs and drinking red wine for breakfast, sweating profusely, singing until our voices go hoarse, belly laughing the days away and rocking out with our favorite bands..... this girl is fuggin' POOPED.
It's been real Firefly.
Thanks for the awesome memories.
