Concert in the Park

We went to a concert in the park at Ashley Pond last Friday. 

Russ learned at work that Ashley Pond should actually be called Ashley Pond Pond because it's named after Ashley Pond. He was a Detroit gentleman who founded a school for privileged boys in Los Alamos in 1917. I, personally, think that Ashley Pond Pond would we way too complicated to say if you were speaking quickly (which, I'm told I commonly do :).

Friday night at the park was a great time to people watch, more specifically, kid watch.  Kids kept running down this hill and barely stopping themselves from launching into the water.  There were even a few of them riding their bikes or roller blading down the hill. I was impressed that I didn't see anyone get wet all night.

The Nomads, a local band, played an awesome blend of classic rock and, if my husband were one to dance, I would have pulled him onto his feet and made him dance with me. Instead, I did some awesome shoulder dancing and foot tapping. :) 

This is a concert series that lasts all summer long and I can definitely see us attending many more shows.


  1. This sounds like it was great fun! Wow, what a beautiful sunset! Thanks for sharing, Momma J.

  2. Looks nice down there! Glad to see you guys are settling in so quickly.

    By the way, I'm really tired and bored this morning...again.
