A Night Out With Adults

Sorry for what will be late posts. Decided to unplug from technology for a few days!

On Saturday, Kristen and I did our annual pilgrimage to Ravinia. An outdoor concert venue, we go each year with friends to hear the BoDeans. Not sure who the BoDeans are? Think Party of Five and the theme song and there you go. Of course, that is my least favorite song. No one knows for sure when it all started, but we've gone the last seven years! Brian and Kristina (couple on the right) started the trek and we joined soon after.



For us, Ravinia is awesome! We hop the train north and get dropped off in front of the gates. No worries about parking, the fees, or worrying about driving after having too much to drink! Ravinia has a pavilion and then loads of grass seating with excellent sound. In fact, we've never actually seen the band, we just hear them as we chat, drink, and eat.
Between the three couples you can count 6 kids so it was fun to be kid-free for an evening and just relax. Already looking forward to next year!

We love Ravinia too. It's the perfect "staycation". Have you taken Gilbert yet?
