Bridge School Benefit

We spent the entire day at the Shoreline Ampitheater, in Mountain View. We went to the Bridge School Benefit concert. There were many bands and performers, including: Gavin Rossdale, Wolfmother, Monsters of Folk, Fleetfoxes, Adam Sandler, Chris Martin of Coldplay, No Doubt, and Neil Young. Neil Young is the founder of the school, which benefits severely physically impaired kids. It was a very good show. Gavin Rossdale was very good-nice acoustic version of Love Remains the Same. Oh and when Quinn and I went for a walk, we wandered over to this teepee that was set up, and who was standing over there as well? Gavin Rossdale and his son, Kingston! For those of you that don't know, Gavin Rossdale is married to Gwen Stefani (No Doubt), and Kingston is their child-the older one. Anyway, lots of great performances. Adam Sandler was fun-sang the Hanukkah Song, but not the Thanksgiving Song. Chris Martin was really good as well. He played "Clocks," with just the piano, and minus the rest of Coldplay. He was really funny, and he sure can play the piano! No Doubt was awesome, as usual, but the drummer was fully clothed at tonight's show. We left at a little after 9 pm, (after No Doubt), and Neil Young still needed to do his set.
It was a beautiful day in Mountain View today. These boys had lots of fun, running around, and Quinn enjoyed dancing.
Quinn was very happy as he found this $5.00 bill! The benefit benefitted him!
Look at that sky! It was nice and warm, and beautiful outside!
The lawn section was almost completely full. We had a great spot.

All three boys, hanging out.

Word of the Day: Busy. What a busy weekend, but it was great fun! Next weekend is Halloween! The boys are so excited to trick or treat. Kevin purchased tickets for us to go to the Disney Museum at the Presidio, in San Francisco, on Saturday. We look forward to that, and to seeing Where the Wild Things Are-couldn't fit it in this weekend. Happy end of the weekend to you all!
