Yes that is my son and my hubby wearing headphones and grooving to different tunes in the yard.

My son has been very generous in returning home from Gannon to mow and rake and mow and rake … He even enjoy’s my husband’s music — a mix of country, rock and roll, Beach Boys, 98 Degrees and 70s tunes. So Ryan borrows his stepdad’s iPod every time he’s on landscaping duty.

My hubby supervises while wearing his headphones and listening to Pandora on his iPhone. Well the funny thing about this picture is that to communicate, they have to hand signal, remove headphones and then talk.

These big honking headphones are another story. My oldest son got a set for himself years ago when he won some kind of gift card to Amazon. He bought these professional grade $150+ headphones. Everyone in the family tested them out, and fell in love with them. At the time, everyone in the family used them — including me, and we listened to my hubby’s music.

So if you need a gift that brings a stepfamily together to listen to one another’s music and leaves you laughing, get some headphones — and your camera.
