I had the privilege of visiting with my sister, Diana, and her family last week.
A new interest in their life is the Wii Rock Band. She and my 16 year old nephew, Daniel, could spend 8 or more hours a day "doing" Rock Band.
Philip, 13, also likes to play with them, but not necessarily for such long periods of time.
While I was visiting, we all went down to my parent's house, and decided to bring Rock Band with us. While my dad tried to pick up on how to play the drums, lead guitar or the bass, he never quite did get it. Diana did her best to help him, but to no avail.
The best part was when my dad tried to sing.
He would have done much better if they had some Bing Crosby or Frank Sinatra songs. My mom, on the other hand, did fairly well and enjoyed playing with Diana and Daniel while Philip, my dad and I played cards. (I won't even start telling you how badly I did in Rock Band!)
Diana and Daniel are really good at Rock Band after all their practice. As they were playing one particular song, Diana mentioned that it is one that just flows for her and is very comfortable to play. The funny thing about it is that the song she was referring to is one called "Waves of Mutilation". Doesn't that sound appropriate for her? (Hint: The answer is NO!)
After a while, the whole group joined us playing cards. (I think our laughter was too infectious for them to resist!) We had a fun evening, however Daniel had a few moments in which he was not doing well!
Isn't Diana beautiful?
I had a memorable time and can't wait until my next visit. Stay tuned for pictures of the beach at sunset next time. . .
