Back Deck Happy Hour







One thing we love to do when we’re visiting my parents is sit outside, pour a few drinks and listen to my dad play guitar. He’s always been musically inclined, but only in recent years has he started doing these little jam sessions. It’s such a wonderful way to spend time together!

Above are several photos of last night’s concert on the deck. Jack especially loved it—he was getting a little fussy before bedtime, but as soon as my dad started strumming, he mellowed out and was totally mesmerized by the music. And that picture of him holding my mom’s hand? Too cute for words.

What little traditions does your family have when you get together? I’d love to know!

    how fun! My dad and brother both play the guitar so I remember growing up listening to them both play. Sometimes it got annoying as a teenager who just wanted to go to sleep, but now I enjoy it ;). We have a tradition of singing Christmas carols to my dad playing the guitar. I look forward to it every year!

    Looks like such a relaxing time with family! I love live music and evening drinks– makes ordinary days feel like vacation. Thanks for sharing!

    Nothing like music and happy hour as a perfect end to a day!

    Is that a bib AND a teether that Jack is wearing? My 8 month old, Hudson, is teething like crazy and I think he’d love this! Would love to know more about that :)
