ukulele fest

wednesday night Chris and I went to a ukulele festival in Maryland. the goal? to beat the world record for most people playing ukulele at the same time. the previous record was around 800 folks -- and we beat it with 944! it was a really fun event. lots of people out on picnic blankets, folks of all ages with their ukes out, cookout food, a ben and jerry's ice cream truck, etc.

so i spent all last night excited that i was going to be in the guinness book of world records only to find out this morning that the SWEDES held a 3,000-person ukulele festival! BLERRRRRRGH!!!!!

it's ok. it's ok. it's ok. it's all for the experience, right? and the memories, which are captured, in part, via my camera :) enjoy

my makshift ukulele case, haha!

look at that crowd! such a beautiful evening

yes, we are dorks. but we embrace it

chris practising

i was number 844!

the shoe shot

we all held up our ukuleles before we started playing!

so we didn't make a world record. that's ok! we had fun anyway.
