Barberville Spring Frolic 2008

Hey everyone,

I'm updating you about the Barberville Spring Frolic we attended this past weekend, April 26-27. We had a wonderful time jamming, dancing, listening to bands, learning about all sorts of instruments/types of bluegrass music, meeting new people... etc. :)
The Spring Frolic was hosted at the Barberville Pioneer Settlement. The buildings were so unique and beautifully old! Sorry that we don't have many pictures. The memory on mom's camera was almost full when we got there and we really didn't want to take a ton of time to clear pics off. Anyway, hope y'all enjoy...!

I will begin my post with a random picture of a peacock! :) Not only were we at a pioneer settlement, but it appeared to be a zoo/farm as well! LOL!

Here is the first group we got pictures of :) Jubal's Kin. L-R: Gailanne (fiddle, banjo), Roger(guitar, mandolin), and Jeffrey Amundsen (bass).

And... a flower setup mom really liked :)


Here we see myself, Olivia, and Anna preparing to enter the old school house. This is the only "posed" picture that was taken of us :)



Anna and Olivia contra dancing together, here shown promenading.

I sat this round out, so I was able to take a few neat shots of everyone dancing. In this pic, you can see all my lovely family...


The Morse Family band. L-R: Matthew: Fiddle, banjo, guitar, Leah: Fiddle, Abigail: Guitar, Seth: Guitar, Aaron: Mandolin, Dawn (mother): Mandolin, bass

Ooooohhhh!!! I LOVE it! I need to go next time! Thank you, thank you for the pictures and clip of Jubal's Kin! Wait until I get Kim in here, and show her. :) I love the lawnmower, I could really enjoy that! So cute! Don't you love the old buildings? The one in which you were dancing is one of my favs, I step inside, and my imagination just takes off! Thanks for the pics and clips...I enjoyed that a lot.
Love you lots, Stone Clan...

Oooooooohh, llloooookkk, changes! I'm guessing, that would be Anna! Was I right, was it Anna? Sigh. I am so good at these things. :) Hey, graduating Box Buddy, I got your lovely announcement, and adored it. So there. It was a gorgeous job, and I loved the colors. Have a good day!

There are changes indeed, and, yes I am the culprit. Good job Sherlock! :)
Here's what happened. I was just looking at other templates we could use for the blog, and our settings saved the accidental changes. "AAUUUGGGHHHH," I thought to myself. So I changed the template back to our original one and the colors were all messed up! *sigh* I sure had a time trying to get the set up back to the way it was. I guess I still didn't quite succeed. :/ Oh well! :D
I'm happy you got the announcement dear! Glad you liked it. There's a fun story for those that I'll tell you sometime.
Love you much!
Anna :)

Whah,ha,ha! I am SHERLOCK! Heh, heh!
Well, let's just pretend you did that with wonderful masterful skill, and then I will say-"I like it". :) Oh, but, I know what you are talking about...that's happened to me, too, and I think dynamiting the pc is a good idea. Yes, I'd love to hear the story. Hey, one more week to graduation! Woohoo!
Love you more,
JM
