On the mend...

In honor of orange and green week-- Libs went to school looking like a leprechaun!

It's still raining so the kids (and the teachers) are getting a bit stir crazy!

When the toddlers entered the big room today the story was in progress-- not one to miss a good story, Libi pushed her way into the center of the group. I'm pleased that she likes literature so much, but I wish she wouldn't step on folks to experience it.

This afternoon the rain came down in buckets. Libi and I thought someone was pointing a hose at our house the way it just came down! We had to brave this bad weather though because tonight was something really special!!!

We began by going out to dinner at ChiChi's. I know it's not the fanciest place, but when you haven't really eaten in days-- you go with what sounds good!

Then it was a wet drive down the the Music Center.

We told Libi that her big girl surprise involved singing and dancing, but we didn't tell her anything else.

She was THRILLED to find out we were taking her to:

Mary Poppins the musical!!!

Cameras were prohibited, but I did manage to snap a few shots inside:

Here are Libi and Daddy after the show.

And a blurry shot of our family. Libi was in awe of the whole show. She sat transfixed during the entire thing. She did say "Hello" to Mary Poppins and comment that there were no animals in the "Jolly Holiday" song. During intermission she insisted that we start it again and when the show was over she wanted to see it again immediately! I think my plan to raise a theater-loving child is working!!!

After we pulled out the the theater, my daughter requested "Dessert!!!"...

but she crashed before we could get anything!!!
