On Thursday our family went to dinner at La Posada. It was fun. It was good to hang out with everyone, and the food was good. Raylan won a new friend, a fox that he named Frank, from the claw machine.

The musicians are all great, but the most fundamental element of Case's music is always the vocals. Neko has a unique, powerful, melancholy sort of voice, and she has backing singers who layer harmonies within her songs that make them rich and, frequently, quite beautiful.
It was a good show. We had a really nice time. The music made it worth braving the damp, 30-something degree weather on a Friday night. Thank goodness the show was in a nice, warm concert hall.
On Saturday my parents kept the kids so we could run some errands and have a day to do adult stuff.
Mom sent this picture of the four of them riding a train at the mall. It doesn't look like the kids suffered too much in our absence...

Saturday night we went out for dinner. Thai food. Yum!
On Sunday morning we met up with my folks to pick up the kids. They came home and played a bit before lunch and nap. Then we played in the house a bit.
Later we went to Hoppin' House to try to wear Raylan and Kiddo out a bit before dinner and bed time.
We got home from Hoppin' House, and I gave the kids a bath before heading off to band practice.

Band practice was good. We sounded good, and we had a good time.
Reed, Frank, Jim, and I were there.
And that was the weekend! It was a little cold and wet this weekend, but we had a good time.
Happy birthday, Amy! Love you!!!
