If the house is a rockin'

Last weekend we attended a "back porch concert" at a local winery.  We were so excited to go because
the band playing was the same one that played at our wedding reception!
The weather wasn't too hot, we brought a picnic dinner and bought some wine to go along with it.
We had a lot of fun!


My little chickens had a ball.  They loved the grass, so soft on their little feet.



Towards the end of the night, the horns came down and played out front.  It was awesome.  I have a special love for horns since my dad was a musician.  He played the sax and trumpet.  He would have loved this band!

This is the band leader, Ezra Charles.  He has a son, 13, who plays the drums and one night a week they go together and play music at one of the hospitals in the Houston Medical Center.  (I can't remember if it's MD Anderson or TX Children's, but awesome either way!)






Check out this big tree!  The area behind the back porch was full of beautiful pecan trees.  It was a great night!

Looks like everyone had a great time. You'll have to let me know which winery this is. Maybe we can meet up at the next one. : )

That look utterly delightful. And how fantastic that you got to hear the band from your wedding...makes it even more delightful!

That is so neat that it was the same band that played your wedding reception! I bet it brought back lots of wonderful memories. Love the pictures too!!!
