My parents and sister came to Austin a few weeks ago and we all went to ACL. The best part was that my parents brought 2 friends with them to babysit the kids each night - wow - how great is that?!?
Best parts of the weekend? No kids to worry about, great weather on Friday, great bands : Phoenix, John Legend, !!!, Airborne Toxic Event and Dave Mathews Band.
Not so great parts? The rain on Saturday, the swamp of Dillo Dirt Sunday and the crowds of people that would climb over us if we did not sit in a defensive strategy.
We had a lot of fun, it was great to spend time with my sister and family and see live music in beautiful Zilker Park.
