Twin Making Sounds: The first single

Finn and Leif's new band, Twin Making Sounds has recorded their first single today! Here's the self-titled track!

How we did it:
Finn built the first two samples on GarageBand, using the musical typing function and playing the instruments of his choice: piano and drums. I looped those bits and he was done.
Leif then chose another drum loop and recorded the vocals.

Voila! Music!

The weekends slip away!

Whoops! The end of summer seems to have gotten the best of us. We left you, loyal readers, without a blog post or two! Here's what we've been up to:

A couple of weeks ago, we made a somewhat impromptu trip to the cities and while there, we paid a visit to our friends, the Whetstone family. Benjamin is a big dude now with a little brother of his own, Abram. The boys had a great time with trains and trucks, as would be expected.

Also that weekend we hit up the Como Park Zoo, a family favorite, and ComoTown, the adjacent amusement park.
Here's me with the boys on the teacups. My stomach can't handle the prolonged spinning the way it once could...

Then last weekend, we made our first trip to the Boundary Waters with the boys, with both sets of grandparents as support staff. Our entry into Lake One was a bit rainy, but it held off long enough once we got to our campsite so we could cook and set up our tents. The next two days were progressively nicer and everyone had a great time. Keely and I are looking forward to many more trips with our boys.

Keely was pretty psyched to portage the canoe while pregnant, even for just a little while.
