Toddler sings the blues...

My birthday was a couple of weeks ago. My terrific family took me out to lunch at one of my favorite places--a blues club in Long Beach. Lunch time there on a Saturday isn't very busy, and they have live music (and great food).

So we enjoyed our lunch, and just as we were finishing up, the band took the stage. They were really good, and it wasn't long before the kids were up and dancing. Well, the band played a few songs, and they seemed genuinely amused by the kids enjoying the music so much.

Then, the leader of the band invited the kids on stage to sing along! The older kids got a little scared, but Toddler Houdini jumped right up there. The song was Nite Train, and her job was to do the train whistle sounds (whoo! whoo!).

Here's what it looked like:


You can barely see her behind the amp, but she is there.













There she is, belting out the tunes...














Finally, DisneyGirl joined in the singing...
















And the band rocked on!



















Here are the kids with Bob Crail, the leader of the Blackouts.

Thanks guys, for making this an unforgettable birthday memory!
