Mary Poppins

This last weekend we went to visit my grandparents.  While we visiting we went to see Mary Poppins with Bockum and my parents.  It was the first time we have taken the girls to see a play.  I wasn't sure how things would go because the play was outdoors and didn't start until 8:45pm, well past bedtime.   Red Fish was definitely a little tired but she made it through the entire play.  She liked the play and really enjoyed the tap dance numbers.  It was fun to watch her face when horses crossed the stage.  She was blown away that real horses were allowed on stage.  She loved the story line.

New Fish was completely entranced by the play.  She absolutely adored every second of it.  They were both so quiet and good during the play.  I did have to put my hand over New Fish's mouth on the multiple occasions she was tempted to break into song.  She did a lot of dancing along.  At the very end of the play when Mary Poppins felw over the audience with her umbrella it was completely quiet and New Fish suddenly shouted: "Goodbye!  I will miss you!"  Everyone around us burst out laughing.  It was beyond cute. 

Watching the girls was the first time I have felt like myself in months.  It was a good feeling. This was one of those nights that felt pretty much perfect.  (Other than Grandma not being able to be there with us.)
