Choo Choo music
Our Kangaroo friend Bobby Roo, was for a long time a character we had thought about creating.
He loves to sit under his apple tree and play his ukulele.
His character of joyful enthusiasm for fun and music affected our feelings towards all of the songs as they were being written.

When The Sun comes up - lyrics
"When The Sun Comes Up" is the first song on the album.
Soon after our son was born, this song started coming out. We sang it to our baby boy just to entertain him, or if he was crying, to cheer him up. Now that he is older, he sings this song all by himself.

10 wonderful songs to enjoy
The first song written for the album was "Butterfly Lullaby".
Butterfly Lullaby inspired us to continue writing more songs, and eventually after about 18 months of writing and recording at home, we wrote the final song which was "Such A Beautiful Day".
Each song was recorded with love and warmth, and to entertain and communicate with our child, and children all around the world.
