Glory be - a dream come true! I took the boys to the Collegiate Marching Band Festival today. Now just to be clear, this would be Kyle's dream if he had known such a thing existed. This is not my, Heather's and not Owen's dream, but it is most definitely Kyle's dream. And it was a dream come true - a was a gorgeous day, perfect weather and it was very exciting. Kyle and Owen brought their trumpets (toys) with them and carried them for the entire afternoon.
We arrived and got a chance to see a few bands warming up including the Morgan State Marching Band. I think it was the only all black band there (not entirely sure), so I was thrilled that we happened upon their practice. And they rocked. Really - a good marching band is really something to see.
Once we got to the stadium it was pure Marching Band Action - and both boys were enthralled. We got to see three different Marching Bands perform (there were 17 that day) and for us Morgan State was the best. Kyle Grooved to it, "playing" his trumpet and moving it up and down like the bands were doing. Owen lost interest after a while, but found interest in jumping from bleacher to bleacher and acting as traffic cop/toll gate to people down the stairs.
A marching great day all around!
