Virgin Festival 2007 – Quick wrap-up

Sunday, August 5th, 2007

I just got back from the Virgin Festival in Baltimore. (well, I’m still at the hotel…) It was an awesome 2-day spectacle of music, sweaty people and questionable smells. I didn’t get to see every band. there was really so much going on it was a bit overwhelming.. I should give you a quick rundown of my experience while it’s still fresh:

Pre-Vacation Check-In

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Hey I thought I’d leave a quick little post so people don’t think we have disappeared. We’ve just been busy. REAL busy. I’m still killing myself over the Yo Gabba website and Marylynn is in PA with the kids helping Katie, Clayton and Gredtel move into their new place in Hershey. I’m going to Baltimore tomorrow for the mega-awesome Virgin Festival Weekend. I’m super giddy. Lots of good bands… Then as soon as I get back we’re flying out to California for our Summer vacation: A week in the Bay Area and a week in Orange County. It should be fun, but I suspect I’ll be exhausted by the time I get back…

I hung out with mission buddy Peter Eubanks and his wife last night. They’re cool. He just graduated from Princeton with a degree in French and he’s taking a job at the University of Iowa. I’m kind of jealous. I wish I could just use my French all day…. oh well.

So if I don’t write for a while you’ll know why, but I’m going to have my laptop with me on vacation, so I should have plenty of pictures to put up here throughout the trip.

We’re doing a bit better since the last post. We still get sad a lot when we think about it, but we’ll be okay. I mean what choice do we really have? The Sherwoods are awesome and we love them so much. They really have such a good eternal perspective on everything. They’re an inspiration to us all.

Anyhow, so to end on a lighter note, I leave you with the best rap video I have ever seen.
