Kenny Weekend 2009

Ah yes, it's that time of year again. Well at least it was back in August. Suddenly we're into September and I haven't had time to post the evidence of Kenny Weekend, until now.

This year Kenny was playing in CT on a Thursday, before his yearly stop at Gillette Stadium for Kenny's Country Fest on a Saturday. Incidentally it was my friend's birthday on the following Sunday. So, when we bought Country Fest tickets back in December (yes they go on sale 8 months ahead and sell out in minutes every year) we coined the ordeal to be "Kenny Weekend."
When we arrived at the concert in CT, we couldn't believe how close our seats were. Here's a photo depiction of just how close we were...

Can you see two Kenny's?

Here are some shots from Gillette. This is the first year we were not on the floor, and I really didn't mind. At first we thought it would feel much father back, but it wasn't bad. Being up in the seats had a few benefits, one being that they had some actual air flow (with 56,000 people attending and it was a hot august day, it was much breezier than the floor seats), and two being that the chairs are fixed, so no one was squishing into our row.

His skills, enthusiasm and energy on and off of the field will be missed! (Wes Welker was there too, but I didn't get any good shots of him)
Next: Some actual knitting content! Last week I sneaked in some time on my booties. Hopefully my increase in knitting time will continue. I found a mistake early on so I ripped back to zero and started over. I'm now ahead of where I was before the rip!
