Stagecoach 2009 - Indio

Brian scored us free tickets to get into Stagecoach - a two day country music festival. County acts like Miranda Lambert, Reba, Zac Brown Band, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisely, Darius Rucker performed to name a few. We had a great time hanging out with our friends the Connors.Emily, Darby and Brandon
We took our canopy charis and hung blankets to help keep us in the shade. It worked -- no one got sunburned. There were about 70,000 people who came -- this is early in the day and it doesn't show the crowds well -- but it does show our view of the stage and big screens.

Brandon and Darby enjoying the music.
The evenings cooled down and since the concerts didn't end until 11pm we had to bundle up.

Madison and Jason made tents out of their blankets and hung out with their glow sticks.
We got these cool mister/spray pump bottles and the guys helped to keep the crowd cooled off.
Courtney and Madison kept cool under the shade canopies during the day.
The kids got to meet Lady Antebellum and get their autographs. They were really excited as we are big fans of their music.
Megan still recovering from her eye ulcer was not able to wear contacts lenses so glasses kept her in the shade as well.
Emily and Brandon got new hats --
Donna, Janet and Marleen. Janet and her daughter Rachel also came to the event and we were able to save them seats so they could be close by.

Here we are just haning out in our space -- it got REALLY crowded so I was thankful to have blankets to give us more room. What a great time we all had! Thanks Connors!!!
