|Time to blog!|
The week leading up to the concert was pretty typical; work, farm, sleep. I managed to workout 3 days which I'm not all that happy with but I will try and do better this week. If you read my post, Farm Fresh, then you will know that we have been eating a lot out of the garden. I have actually noticed a significant drop in our weekly grocery bill which is nice for a little while! Also, we have started advertising our chickens, turkeys and beef for sale. We've gotten quite a bit of interest so far so hopefully we will be able to sell everything!
Now, onto the weekend. I was off on Friday so I spent the whole day getting everything ready for the concert. We were camping at the concert campsite and I have never been camping so I had a lot to do to prepare. My nephew, Jack, spent the day with me and he was such a great helper! He is only 5 (almost 6) but you would never know, he is so mature. By the time Scott got home, I had everything ready, we just had to pack the car up. We picked up our friends, Heather and Stefan, who were spending the first night with us at the campsite. We got to the Shediac exit around 6:45 and it was lined up down the highway. We waited in that line for 3 HOURS just to get into the campground! Regardless of the wait, we still had a good time just chatting and enjoying the company. We cracked the long wait up to just arriving at the busiest time. We finally got into campground at around 10pm only to find out it wasn't really a campground, only a field. Again, we didn't mind, who cares what it was, we were only tenting anyway. We set up our tent, had supper and met some of the people camping around us. After we ate we went to find where the stage was because there was supposed to be small concert for the campers that night - a pre-show you could call it. It was AWESOME! The music was great and we had a blast. Unfortunately, it didn't take long to figure out that the campsite was extremely unorganized. There were not enough porta-potties for the amount of people they had at the site (you can only imagine how gross that was), there was nowhere to get water of any kind, and there were NO garbage cans. Like, what?! Who doesn't think to have garbage cans when there are 1000+ campers on site!

|Terrible picture - but I discovered I LOVE to camp! We will definitely be doing it again in the near future!|

On Sunday, I had a bridal shower to go to for a friend and then my sister-in-law dropped her 2 kids, Jack and Hannah, and their dog Sadie off at our house. We were looking after them for the afternoon while she went out to supper with friends. As exhausted as both Scott and I were, it turned out to be so much fun having them there. We are very close with them so we love any chance to have them to ourselves! The kids helped me pick some veggies out of the garden for supper, which they thought was super cool. Then Hannah helped me clean them and package the ones we didn't need. Jack helped Scott fix his whipper snipper and then after supper Scott gave them rides on the lawn mower (I know, we're pretty hillbilly haha!).
