Garrison Keillor has a radio show that is broadcast live and we got to be there for it! I am not sure how much of it the kids understood, but I thought it was great. If you want to hear what we got to listen to, here is the link:
The show opened with a 4th of July Open Song. It was an ode to those who dream the impossible dream. You can listen to it here... http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/programs/2010/07/03/scripts/open.shtml
The kids got to laze around on chairs and on the blanket while snacking away on picnic food and listening to the show. The weather was nice, if not a bit warm. Not a cloud in the sky. It was a beautiful way to spend a Saturday.
