Today is Jayne's 1st birthday. We have been working like mad getting ready and now the day is here. I thought I would share a couple of pics. 1st there is the chalk drawing we did. I did Diego and the 1. The rest was done by Adam and my bros-in-law, Steven and Mitchiel. People have even been honking as they see it. We live on highway 30 so we get a pretty decent amount of traffic. The last pic is of Jayne. He is resting up for his big party!
The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.
