Jazz Jam



It's been a slow week for me. Nothing good to blog about. I took these videos of my crazy kids dancing a while back and thought I'd share them. So basically, this post is for Grandma...to anyone else, it's just a couple of crazies being crazy.

We attended the local Jazz and Arts Festival a month or so ago. The university that Spencer is attending actually has quite a good music program. Specifically jazz music. I've mentioned it before, but several notable musicians have ties to this small town (Deep Blue Something, Don Henley, Meat Loaf, Norah Jones, Roy Orbison and Sly Stone...to name a few). I was expecting a little better from a jazz festival in a town that produced such names. It was a fun event, but definitely small town. We didn't hear any of the next greats.

This is what we enjoyed the most...a little rockin' out to some less than mediocre, crazy Christian Rock band. When we came to sit down they were just tuning up their instruments so we had no idea what we were in store for. The first line included "Jesus." I just can't ever enjoy music like that. Parker was quite surprised as well. His eyes went big..."What did they just say? What song is this?"

I struggled uploading one of the videos to blogger, so I used YouTube instead. (I guess I figured it out Karen...I couldn't tell you how to do it though. Videos are not my strength as a blogger.)

The best part of this second one is at the very end where Reid tries to shake his bum.

Little Ross and I really enjoyed watching the boys dance!! Little Ross said "Parker Reid come to house" I think he is missing his little neighbors. Thanks for sharing the videos.
