They have a pot luck supper and then everyone hangs out and socializes. When the sun goes down, everyone heads up to the stage to watch the show. This year there was some question about the performance because it was raining really hard all day, but what else is new? This has been a wet late summer/fall, so we get rain almost every day. The rain did stop at some point, and they put out tarps and chairs and we watched the show. It’s a lot of fun seeing old friends and watching the kids perform, especially, of course, A. She’s a natural performer and plays with a fairly high level of confidence, it impresses me to no end.
After the show, it was late, but the kids wanted to check out the bonfire, where there was a surprise. JM set up all these fireworks and this impressive display of sparklers and explosions, which was pretty cool. We ended up getting home closer to 11:00PM, and man were we beat, but in a good way.
Fortunately it was Saturday, which meant sleeping in on Sunday to be well rested to make falafels. Such is life, right?
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Antony Grossy for the pic.
