Best Concert Ever!!

What a busy and fun weekend!!  Friday started off fun knowing that Matt would be home from work early.  I always look forward to that!  In the evening we went out to dinner at one of our favorite places to celebrate a good friend's birthday.  The food was so delicious - I had homemade vodka cream pasta with this delicious shrimp skewer.  I do love food!

Then it was Saturday...and this is a Saturday we've been waiting for since December.  Finally, the day was here.  It was not sunny as we had hoped but that did not damper our spirits.  With two good friend in tow and the children safely stowed with their respective other family members, we headed up to Green Bay, WI for a concert at Lambeau Field.  It was the first time there was a concert since the stadium had been renovated and boy did they pick a good one.

It was Kenny Chesney's Goin' Coastal Tour 2011 featuring Kenny, of course, but also Zac Brown Band (my favorite!), Billy Currington, and Uncle Kracker.  The parking lot opened at 11am and we got there shortly thereafter to enjoy some time tailgating.  We grilled and stuffed our faces with food and washed it all down with plenty of beer.  We would have loved to have been in summer clothes, but ah, it was still so fun!  Here's a few pics from the parking lot fun:

The concert was the best I've ever been to, hands down!  The set up in the stadium was amazing and the artists all did such a great job.  The best part for me though was watching them play various songs together toward the end of the concert.  Other highlights included all the tributes that were made to the stadium itself, as well as the Superbowl Champion Green Bay Packers.  ZBB wore a yellow and green hat and one of his crew had on a Matthew's jersey.  Very nice!  During Kenny's show, Coach McCarthy came onto the stage during "The Boys of Fall" to show off the trophy.  Wow!  If you have the chance to catch this tour, I highly recommend it!
