Carney Cousins: The "short lived" band

One morning, bright and early the cousins decided that they would form a band and make money. Oh, how they think making money is so easy... Michelle and I found this hilarious as they only have one real instrument; the guitar, their second instrument was a upside down trash can and a plumbing pipe as a makeshift drum stick and of course they had a singer singing lyrics they couldn't decide upon. 

The guitarist

The drummer 

The singer

The sign...

The cutie who watched, listened and learned

An interesting part of their business model for their up coming band was they wanted to charge us for listening. They would come inside and ask us if we could hear their music and of course who on our street couldn't? Once discovering that their music made it's way to our ears they wanted us to pay up! haha!

After about 40 minutes of growing as a band there was some drama like in all band stories. Someone stole money, another one threatened to smash the guitar while someone else retired from the role as lead singer. 

We heard a lot of ;

 I never wanted to be in the band anyway!

This is the worst band ever

Stop trying to control the band!

I'm through with the Band!

And you may have thought boys are not dramatic: WRONG! 

There was a lot of yelling, he said "blah blah blah", "no I didn't" and very sad faces.
We had a pow wow and set up some parameters about the way we treat one another. I did not know whether the cry, yell or laugh with hysterics. We loaded grumpily into to separate family cars and prayed that something we said would sink in so we could enjoy our morning downtown.

We pulled up into parking spots next to one another and the boys got out and practically wrestled one another with a big fat bear hug seeping with love. I think my heart started thumping really loud in the best kind of way. Something did sink in... we are doing something right:)

Our morning from then on was free of band drama and full of positive fun energy.

Fun moments from our train and downtown adventures

Matching watches for cousins that adore each-other 

Our money shots!

The cousins!

I am not going to lie; it was exhausting but worth it! Love all of these unique, stubborn,  strong willed, brilliant, funny, witty, adventurous and kind boys. Watching them grow is a blessing!
