A Wonderful Day with my Niece!


Hi!

Well today I picked up my little niece & we went to see the Bee Movie! It was great! I had a lot of fun! She got Matthew Broderick's character in her Happy Meal too! HA!

Then I took her to see the New Production of Annie! It was great! I surprised her, she was sooo excited. Before the play they had a 30 min talk on the history of it. My niece new all the words to it & I have no clue how? I got her a bag, she didn't want the glitter t-shirt & of course a CD so she can sing. I was in tears watching her excitement throughout the show in the first row of the balcony, where she wanted to sit. It was 1/2 price tickets! :-) I think I also was a bit sentimental remembering my grandparents taking us kids when we were little. I guess the best thank you to them is to continue the tradition! :-) It is like them taking her since they are no longer here.

The girl who played Annie, Amanda Balon, was great! She has been acting since she was 2 yrs old! Wow! And the gentleman playing Daddy Warbucks was great too. He was a drama coach for a long time & finally got on Broadway himself.

A packed day but fun & now...back to work...ha...but I have Fri off & I keep forgetting! I never remember!  Unfortunately, I think I will be overserving Veteran's Day but cleaning! Ha!

Sounds like a great day.  I know Todd and I always enjoy it when we take our little friend Pauline to shows like this.  She's 13 1/2 now and I suppose will soon have outgrown them, so we shall have to start looking for a new little friend to help us enjoy these types of films and shows!
