Rockin out!

posted by Kelly

One of my dearest and most talented friends, Candace, rang in her 28th b-day in the rockinist of ways….with a Guitar Hero party. Not familiar with Guitar Hero…tisk, tisk…it is only the most fun “pretend” band game out there. She invited a few of her friends over to a conference room at our church so we could play on the big screen. We were suppose to dress like “rockers” although I give a C- to several attendees who only put forth a “modest” effort” at finding a rockin outfit. Ryan and I went all out. I was channeling a more vintage glamor rocker like Duffy and Ryan was basically any indie rocker out there. We had fun with it and fun guitaring and singing our hearts out.

Happy B-day Can, thanks for the great night!

If only you could have heard some of the notes John was attempting to hit. We vacillated between awestruck and laughing. He gave it 110%.

We did a stellar rendition of “Hotel California”. The family that sings together, stays together. Words to live by.

Things got a little crazy by the end. The scarf came off Candace’s neck and onto her head, the music was turned up and then there was dancing. That’s what people in their late 20’s and early 30’s do….we’re wild I tell ya, wild!
