Beer goggles in town

This is why I don’t shoot weddings. I cannot figure out the flash and if I can’t find the good light I’m a fish out of water! I’ve read the manual for the mounted flash over and over and it is still like a second language.

Anyway, we ventured to Portland to see March4th play at a new gallery opening. Its a traveling marching band with dancers and stilt walkers. I was a bit skeptical about a “marching band” but a guy from my college days is one of the stilt walkers and I had to see what it was all about.

These are not the band geeks from high school! This band ROCKED!!! The music was great and the entertainment was fun. Here’s a video from their site that shows what they all about…

I tried to get some photos, but we walked up as they were already getting started and the crowd was spilling into the street.

Like I said…beer goggles. Impressionism, we’ll call it!

Then we walked through the gallery. The kids loved looking at the art (me too!). There was an entire room of paintings showing a single naked woman and a some sort of barnyard animal, not interacting, just on the same page. I’m not sure what the artist was going for there. Very interesting stuff.

We stopped in a brewery and Jason had a couple drinks, we all shared a couple desserts and someone surprised us by picking up the tab anonymously. I don’t think I’ve ever had that happen!

And late! Time to find the car and go home. I like how Xander is giving me the karate chop or something. He is such a goof ball.

    Looks like a great evening. At the restaurant where I work, we will have someone pick up the check every once in a while for another table while they are both dining. Your family must have impressed someone watching…how could they not…those boys are adorable.
