The children enjoyed baby time, played Rock Band on PS2, Mario Kart on Wii, made Valentines and placemats so nice that I just might have to hire those kids to decorate my house.
And what did the adults enjoy, you ask?
Musicians Life in Song got the party started, interspersing their own music with Karaoke. A mother and daughter team were our first “victims,” but it was the adults who really got into the singing. When it came time to show the movie---the kids voted for Get Smart---the adults informed me that the singing wasn’t over and they had to sing one more song. That one song turned into three. And as they gathered around and sang That’s What Friends Are For, I stared at the group with one thought:
Do these people even have kids, or did they just wander down here from the crowd of adults peering from the first floor railing?
I didn’t find out.
Needless to say, we’re looking into having adult music programs in the future.
