Thinking of things to do for Quinn...

has been one of our favorite past times these days! Mike and I are constantly coming up with little things to do to make her life fun and interesting as she gets older.

The other night, we went to see one of our favorite bands, The Appleseed Cast at The Mohawk. Between the two of us, we've both been listening to them for ten years and have all of their albums (obsessed, much?!) so seeing them for the second time together was pretty awesome. Before their set, we went to the merch table and saw that they had come out with this awesome limited edition record split of two of their old albums and instantly Mike knew we couldn't live without it. As we pondered on when to run to the ATM to get some cash, Mike decided that it would be awesome if we had all of the guys in the band sign the album to Quinn. That way when she is older, we could show her that her parents got their favorite band to sign an album to her! Swweeeeeeeet, so we went on a mission to get the guys to sign it for us. This little endeavor turned into us hanging out with the guitarists for a long while after their set...discussing life after 35, children, the new scoop on their coveted new album, etc. It was a lot of fun and really meant a lot to us.

Mission accomplished! The goal is to try to do this for our top 10 favorite bands of all time. Considering that Braid is broken up and The Smashing Pumpkins refuse to talk to each other...this might prove a little difficult...hahah. Oh well, we'll try!
