My Guitar Hero

No, not the video game.  Spence of course.  You know, they say that the things that attract you to your spouse initially are the things that drive you crazy later on....have any of you ever heard this?  Well, that would have been true about guitar when we were first married and a few years after that.  The money spent on equipment, the noise, the time, being in a band, band members, playing in clubs, etc., etc. etc.  But now, it doesn't bother me so much. This may be due to the fact that we live at the potato farm (not a club in sight) and he usually only plays with his brother and they moved all the stuff down to the barn. :) 

The other night, I put the kids to bed and went down to take pictures of one of their jam sessions.  Spence plays guitar, Trey sings and plays guitar, and BJ plays the keyboard.  And you want to know what?  They're pretty dang good.  I don't know if they'll ever get all the members required to have an actual band, but they enjoy it.  It's a nice stress reliever after a long day of punching cattle.  Hayes and I just wish they'd get another drummer so that we can sneak down again and play on the drum set...Hayes was getting pretty good until the drummer took his stuff.  I guess he and I will stick with Rock Band for now. 

I had to add some effects to the pictures to make them more "rockin"! :)  Isn't their studio/tack shed cool?

those pictures are great! Stacy would love that, the band. But, obviously they don't need another guitar player or singer!! That is definitely one thing that attracted me to Stacy! wow....

I Love that Josh has all his crap, I mean equipment, in the garage and not in poor Haylee's room anymore. It is not much quieter but less messy. Josh wasn't able to go last time Spence called for him to come practice but wants to, we can be the groupies!
