Get Out!

It seems like we don't leave the house much but when we do, we go big! We are a family of music lovers and tend to have music playing around the house. Both Robert and I are long time Peter Gabriel fans and couldn't believe he would be performing at the Santa Barbara Bowl, which was one of only 12 dates on his New Blood Orchestra Tour. These performances are unique in that they are mostly his songs, with a few others from artists like Paul Simon and The Magnetic Fields, performed entirely with an orchestra, no guitar, no drums. FANTASTIC! I tend to be highly emotional with live music as it is but was was literally moved to tears within the first 2 minutes, it was just so beautiful! We weren't supposed to take photos during the performance but I took some before...


It was a bit long for a nearly 6 year old but a nearly 10 year old had a great time. We are looking forward to our next family concert...

Hi Lana,
Those are the very cool and pink converse of my hubby! I wish I could find some for myself! I always wanted purple or pink high tops! I have my "Gaea Uniform" of green khakis (I have 6 of the same pair in various shade of green and brown, thank you very much Target!) and black shirt! They hide a multitude of sins, like a 5 year old who doesn't get the concept of a hand towel!
