Beware the Ides of March!

daisy_knotwise was driving through Bensenville yesterday and saw a sign indicating that their "Music in the Park" program was starting up again this Wednesday. When she checked the schedule, she saw that the first act scheduled was one of her old Chicagoland favorites, The Ides of March. And I agreed that we should try to go if the weather was reasonable.

So the forecast for today, as of yesterday, was for cold, miserable, and rainy.

What we got was slightly cool and clear. Thus, we bundled up the girls and headed to the concert. Things went moderately well, except for Katie spilling some tea on her shirt, which caused her to remove it. She rejected all substitutes, and ended up shirtless for the rest of the night. Later, she removed both socks and shoes.

At least she kept her pants on.

But she danced to the first few songs, which was great fun to watch. And Julie bopped along nicely to the music when I picked her up and put her in my lap so she could see the stage.

Eventually, though, Katie and Julie had had enough. We started packing up and were heading for the figurative exit just as they started their last song, Vehicle, so we got to listen to that on our way out.

All things considered, a moderately successful music venture.

Next time, I'm feeding Katie fewer Cheetos. :)
