Summer Sounds

Last Sunday, we made a return trip to Symphony Park for the Charlotte Symphony Summer Pops concert series. We came to our first one last summer, but it was a bit rainy. This year we were hoping for better weather and we got it! Yay! The night turned out to be perfect for an outdoor concert.

This year we also brought along another family - two of Allie's friends and their mom Christy (not pictured. How is it possible I didn't get a photo of her? Lol)
Sooo excited to be here. Allie loves this tradition we've started.
The opening act was a jazz ensemble that played a Dave Brubeck tribute. Swoon. Take Five is one of my favorite songs (and probably their most popular), but the band was great and it was the perfect soundtrack for our dinner and playtime before the symphony started.

Last year, we each took only a dessert to the concert- a dessert of our choice. Allie wanted chocolate chip pancakes so... we made chocolate chip pancakes. Ha! It's no surprise that she wanted to continue this part of the tradition as well, but also spread the love to her friends. She made each one of them a bag of cold chocolate chip pancakes. :)

Crazy fun girls

Symphony time! This week's concert was Scores from Movie Music and included songs from Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney, Gone With The Wind, The Patriot, Grease, Mission Impossible, Star Wars, Les Miserables, and more. SO FUN!

I love this summer tradition and hope we can do it every year!
