ACL - Boy Bonding

The boys (JC & #1) got to the park before the first show started Saturday morning. #1 was so excited - he has had his ACL07 scheduled saved on the computer for weeks and Saturday was going to be his biggest day. I really only had one request - and that was that they take lots of pictures and have a blast.

Of course, going backstage, riding the golf cart and lots of free soda were among some of the highlights.

Dr. Dog - 12:30 AT&T Stage

Raul Malo - 1:30 Dell Stage

Augustana - 2:30 AT&T Stage

Sara Hickman - 2:50 Austin Ventures Stage
What is special about this show is that Sara is our friend AND she had Grooveline Horns playing with her. Our old friend Fernie is the trumpet player with Grooveline. Sam and Jeff got to go backstage and say hey. Sam was REALLY REALLY EXCITED! Sara mentions them on her blog.

Andrea Echeverri from Aterciopelados - 4:00 AKL

Blue October - 4:30 AMD

Muse - 7:30 AT&T Stage
I am pretty certain that Muse was Sam's very favorite of the whole weekend. He saw them last year too and really enjoys them.

Another thing that made the day so great was that Sam was joined by his super friend Matt. ACL wouldn't be right if they couldn't see at least a few shows together!

End of the day and Sam is on cloud nine. Got to hang with Dad all day and do the big boy stuff. Got some special backstage attention, rode some golf carts and rubbed shoulders with some kinda famous people. He hasn't stopped smiling about it yet!

I followed the link to Grooveline's MySpace and was VERY excited to see they played on one of my absolute favorite band's albums- Salvador. AND my favorite song, Montana is on their mySpace page. Funstuff. Thanks.
