This Makes Our Summer
This evening my little family went to a concert inside the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It was located at Howe Meadow. There was an amazing rhythm group called HeartBEAT Afrika. It was a sunny and muggy Ohio evening. We threw down our blanket with other folks from so many different walks of life.
Sam charmed and entertained many around us--especially with his dancing and applause. It seemed like his favorite part was a trio from the band beating out crazy rhythms on plastic buckets. Go figure! The simplicity of a little one to remind us what's really important. And all of this was FREE!
That's the thing that really amazes me about this area. There is such a wealth of culture and experience at very little cost. There are more concerts to come in this series, and for anyone interested, Pitch the Peat has been rescheduled for August 4.
As we drove away before the concert even ended, with a little boy rubbing his exhausted eyes, my husband said, "This makes our summer." And I concur!
