Playing In Wonderland

Today Tom's jazz band played in Children's Wonderland in Vallejo. It is a cute playground type place based on Alice in Wonderland.I can't believe I didn't take any pictures of it so I had to steal this one from Google Images. This is a picture of Tom warming up. I know his trumpet is on the stand. They just warm up the mouth piece first.
This is Tom playing some song. I didn't do a video today because it takes a long time to upload and I just did one. Take my word for it, they were really good today.

Here he is again. This is just a little closer.




We had a great time. I think they will be playing there again in a week or so. Maybe I will have a video of that.

What a fun place! If we can't move LA closer to CA, I'm just going to have to come visit you someday. It looks like you live in a really lovely area. I definitely want to go hear Tom's band play while I'm there.

I really need to find a flute and start playing again! Those pictures make me want it even more!

What a great hobby for Tom! And a great new hobby for you--that of a band groupie! And photographer! How fun. Fondly, Susan

That is totally cool! Thanks again for sharing. I can see you're awfully proud of your Tom!

Jill said...

I would make a good guess that everyone of those people just love Tom!

Go Tom!

What a fun event. I think it's sweet that you didn't take pictures of the place because you were so interested in taking pictures of Tom.

How cool! That place looks like lots of fun.

My girls have been in the jazz band at their school for years. Morgan plays bass and Bekah plays tenor sax. I really like the Jazz band better than the regular Symphonic band. The music is more fun.

I hope you all have a great weekend. Oh, and I love this blog and its layout. It's really pretty. I'm following.

I like Children's Wonderland. It seems like now Tom's not a bishop anymore he gets to do fun things. How cool!
