Jazzy Sunday

Posted by Picasa
Today we went to a Jazz Festival. We took the train in order to avoid both traffic and the search for a parking spot. There were three stages with music playing pretty much continuously. Food vendors, craft vendors, games and a scenic river view. The festival was held in a park next to the boat club my family used to belong to. At one point, while listening to one of the bands, we watched the sailboats come in from the Sunday afternoon races, and enjoyed the delightful river breeze.

We had wonderfully healthy foods like mozzarella sticks and zeppoles (gotta love zeppoles). The kids got 32 oz sodas in souvenir tin cups. (For the first time I can remember they actually thought they had too much soda - and when we went out to dinner neither wanted any more.)

So - great music, scenic location, fun food, beautiful weather. It all adds up to a fantastic day.

And we are all very tired.

Glad you had such a good time on your family outing. Weather was perfect.

Sounds like a great time! But what are Zeppoles? I'll have to use the power of Google.

PJ - A Zeppole is basically a deep-fried dough ball drenched in powdered sugar. Very common at the Jersey Shore.

Deb - Thanks so much for the birthday wishes
