Owl City in Austin

Trent found these tickets for us to go to while we are here in Austin.  He knew I liked the band and was so thoughtful to make it happen for us to go.  They were so much fun to watch as all bands are in person.  However I was hoping to see how they do all their electric techno sounds but they just used a audio file for it.  Bummer!

Newest family member

You’ve heard it said before that pianos become like another member of the family but I think its because of the space they take up.  Which our newest one isn’t that big but it does make a statement now in my living room. I’ve been researching digital pianos for a few months now.  Going back and forth between them and acoustic.  I know one day I will get the acoustic but for now in my girls season of piano life a digital will be fine.  Plus it has headphones! I scored this piano for $700 and the guy I bought it from bought it in Jan at Costco for $1300 which is true because I walked into Costco and they were selling that actual piano 3 days ago for that price.  He had to let it go because he needed the cash and he lives in a small place and it was taking up room. I found a great place for it in the living room which is the only place it would work anyway and the girls have gravitated to it which I hoped they would.  The keyboard wasn’t keeping their desire to practice everyday and I am so happy to see them jump at the chance to play to their hearts content as long as those headphones are on! Easton has now found himself playing it too we shall see what happens with that...
