Memorial Day Weekend

First and foremost: A big thank you to those who have served and are serving now in our military. A special thank you is in order for those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Secondly, we went to see Prairie Home Companion at Wolf Trap on Saturday for their Memorial Day edition.
We're such nerds that we got there 2 hours early to wait for the gates to open 1 1/2 hours before the show. We got AWESOME lawn seats.

Wolf Trap is really amazing. Just beyond where you see the chairs and people is a fairly steep hill. That makes all lawn seats good seats. Unlike other places I've been, this means that everyone can see despite others sitting in front of them.

The actual seating is really gorgeous, too. The entire stadium is made of a really beautiful wood.

This is their set. It really does remind me of home :o)

Garrison Keillor himself came out to the cheap seats!

I love a man in a suit and red sneakers.

The end of the show!
