Concert on the Square

We took Clare to a concert in Madison on Wednesday night. To expose her to culture and stuff. Actually, Concert on the Square is a really fun event. The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra performs on the capitol square, and everyone brings blankets and picnics and spreads out on the lawn to listen to the music. Alcohol is allowed, and the concert is free. If you are ever in Madison on a Wednesday night in the summer I highly recommend it. There were kids everywhere, so I didn't feel too bad when Clare inevitably had a meltdown.

Clare expresses her opinion of the current governor.
It was a beautiful night, though. Ben and I forgot glasses for our wine, so we drank out of the bottle. Because we are classy that way. It will be fun to take Clare next summer, when I am sure her mind will be blown by all the colors! sounds! people!  For this year, though, it was as good a place as any to take a nap.


  1. Ben's expression in that photo is priceless. :)

  2. I love how the people picnicking behind you don't even notice Clare's meltdown. And the sweet napping photo almost makes me want another baby. (*almost, but then I refer to the meltdown pic and come back to my senses*)

  3. You are so funny. I love your voice.
