Date Night

Now that the kids are a little older Kitty and I have been venturing out spending more time together and having more date nights.  This week we were both very excited to go see Radiohead at the Moda Center.

This was the first concert we’d seen since Paul Simon a few months back.  We’ve been to so many together from Pearl Jam to Herbie Hancock, and after three encores and a rare playing of Creep this one definitely ranked up there as one of the best.

It was Autumn’s dinner theater.  This year’s theme was Country Fair Jamboree!  She has been practicing for so long and knew all her songs and dance moves.  It was pretty amazing to see her perform.

Our entire family was ready and won the blue ribbon for best dressed!

Autumn had a special singing and dance solo, the barnyard boogie, that we’ll post later once we get the video.

There was an auction for the special painting project her class made.

I put Luca in charge of the bidding paddle soooOoo we came home with it

and a giant balloon cow.

Luca is all set and very excited to ride the chair lift.

P.S. I also found out on this trip that apparently my snowboard gear is considered “vintage” 😁

Violin Recital

Proud of our Luca.  He’s so precise and focused that violin has been a good way for him to channel that energy.  This was his first recital.  He’s following the Suzuki Method so he played Twinkle Twinkle, Lightly Row, and Go Tell Aunt Rhody.

We always have music on in the house.  Tonight this Jet’s tune came on and the kids busted out into their own spontaneous dance party.

We’ve read to Luca, Autumn, and Mia every night since the day they were born.  Now Luca helps out.
