haven't blogged much this week
because i'm still recovering from the big
30A SONGWRITERS FESTIVAL weekend!
saw so many wonderful artists performing
up and down 30A in a variety of lovely venues.
you should come next year, it's incredible!
and they added a few kid friendly shows this year:
the OHANA INSTITUTE is a school in rosemary beach
and they offer ROCK BAND class!
the kids learn to play instruments, how to write songs,
how to work together to create the sound they want...
it's really impressive.
there are several different rock bands
all made up of different combinations of students...
i saw them perform their winter concert back in december,
and then i got to catch them all again
doing a show at the rosemary beach town hall
during the 30ASWF, which is BIG TIME!
and you could say i'm a groupie.
here are some pics of their 30ASWF show,
taken by COCOA.
i always love it when i see big celebrities
wearing outfits from Gigi's!
after OHANA was done,
up next came grammy nominated artists
to perform songs from their new
"music for kids of all ages" album called
filled with songs about kids visiting a farm,
about being kind to animals,
about making friends...
and the cd comes with a coloring book
with all the lyrics brought to life...
it's available at Gigi's in the store and on the website!
my favorite band of the festival this year and last...
you must experience them...
they are so talented
and they have such a wide variety of fans...
young screaming preteens,
old people like me (also screaming),
even my dad started following them around...
we all love them!

as captured by COCOA on her blog right here!

hawaii, mexico, AND florida!
favorite foods include steak, spaghetti,
hershey's chocolate bar, dark chocolate fudge ice cream,
and cotton candy shaved ice...
SAMANTHA is dyslexic...
this makes it difficult to put words on paper correctly,
but she still LOVES to read...
especially the AMERICAN GIRL book series!
when she grows up she thinks
maybe she wants to be the first GIRL president!
OR maybe even a pharmacist
just like her mom!
CLAIRE just turned 10 years old.
one of her most favorite memories is going to the

AUDREY is nine years old.
her greatest desire is to be a secret agent spy
and her favorite word is SARCOPHAGUS.
when she grows up she wants to be the
worlds greatest veterinarian
and open the world's biggest animal refuge!
she is working on writing a book about monsters,
and while it may be a little bit scary,
she assured me there are no bad words in it.
she enjoys reading HARRY POTTER books.
her mom said she could watch the movies
after she finishes reading all the books!
her favorite food in the whole world is APPLE...
especially juicy green ones.
her favorite sweet treat is cookie dough ice cream
in a waffle cone with rainbow sprinkles!
she loves doing gymnastics
and wants to be a cheerleader when she gets older.
she once went to a cheer clinic
where the south walton high school cheerleaders
taught a cheer and a dance
and she loved it!
one of her claims to fame
is that she was considered
ROSEMARY BEACH'S FIRST BABY
when she was born!
despite all that recognition,
she can still be really shy sometimes.
she loves her brother
(and previous star of the week) ATTICUS
even though she says he's really annoying.
