I had two goals for the summer.
They came together on Saturday evening.
One was a snowcone, or in this case shaved ice.
Oh yes, half was grape for my friend Relyn and the other half cherry, my favorite.
The other part of the evening was a free concert at Washington Park,
by the Rose Gardens.
The city of Portland has many free concerts in different parks,
plus free movies in the parks too.
What a wonderful tradition, but one my husband and I
hadn't participated in for way too long.
So this summer was the summer to change this and return to
the free concerts in the park.
The year I turned 40 I actually danced on this stage.
That was the year I went to work full time and suddenly
I didn't remember how fun it was to go to the park and dance.
Last Saturday night was dancing the salsa and what fun was that.
Are there concerts and snowcones in your summer?
I certainly hope so, as it is a "very good thing".
