This weekend I took my kids to Rock the River
A christian music festival put on by Franklin Graham
We went early stood in line for good seats (a good place to stand close to the stage)
We stood for 9 hours. But we had a great place to stand with a great view.
It rained and sunned, off and on all day - we actually sun burned our cheeks.
We saw a rainbow. A double rainbow. 'What does it mean?'
The bands were great. Skillet was awesome. Starfield came to sing infront of us (he high fived Josiah and his friend and spit on Abby's friend Courtney...). I include the video from just after he was right in front of our group singing. He made off with a free pair of sunglasses...
I had been waiting to see Downhere in concert for a few years and finally got to.
Very entertaining and good messages from Franklin Graham and the artists.
So I got a sore back from standing on the metal floored barricade
...and got a sore throat from yelling and singing along (good thing it was loud - although the really off key voice in the video is probably mine)
...but I got to spend the day with Josiah and Abigail and 6 of their friends.
If you want to watch this pause the music player at the bottom of the blog first
Starfield lead singer Tim Neufeld from Winnipeg and now Abbotsford...must be a good Mennonite boy with a name like that
