Each year we try to go to "Jazz in the Park", the annual event held at Wingra Park, hosted by the Dudgeon-Monroe Neighborhood Association. I don't think we've missed more than one in the years I've lived in Madison, and that one, I "think", was due to weather.
Last Saturday was a beautiful day. It was bright and sunny, warm, not too humid, and a great breeze blowing off the lake.
The bandshell was new this year. In years past, the band was in a huge white tent, which made it hard to see them from a distance. This worked out very well for everyone/anyone in the park.
Don, Perry, and me. This was Perry's 2nd visit of the day. He stopped by earlier while on a run, went home, got cleaned up, and came back to enjoy the music and people.
I got to hold Nevada awhile, too, giving Dad Seth a short break. Tough work for me, eh? ;)
Rob rode down to the park with us, and Seth joined us as we rolled our bikes to "our site".
Krista and Jacob came down to the park with the twins, too. Here Krista is with Zoe (in her new butterfly hat for the occasion).
Jacob with Kai, who is also wearing his new hat for the event.
Kai enjoying some time on Don's recumbent trike. This was Don's seat during the entire day. He sat with us for awhile, then pedaled around chatting/enjoying the event with others in the park.
Here I am, all packed up and ready to head home. The trailer made the trip down to the park very convenient, carrying our cooler with snacks/refreshments, plus our folding chairs.
A great time was had by all! Hopefully, the weather at next years event will be as nice.
