So, last Saturday, Allie and I headed out for lunch at a little cafe in downtown Minneapolis before making our way to the Children's Theater to see "Annie." Allie was definitely excited, but since she has never been to a play or musical before, she was really not sure what to expect. Here she is at the theater, waiting for "Annie" to begin, with her very own Sandy (I know, bad quality phone photo):
It has been a week later and Allie is still singing songs from the play and taking Sandy with her all over the house. She has adopted a little bit of a New York accent in an effort to sound like Annie as well. Plus, she regularly enlists Zach to help her act out scenes from the play.
While we were enjoying the show, Ben stayed home with Zach and Olivia. Zach opted for a PJ day and was apparently struggling to wake up from his afternoon nap when Ben snapped this picture.
It was good that I left these two at home because there would have been no way they could have sat through a 2-hour musical. But, I am looking forward to the day that I can take them too!
