We ended up getting to come to Alabama yesterday and going to see the play Wizard of Oz today in Birmingham. Can you believe my sweet 15 month old sat through a little over 3 hours of a broad way play? Well she did, but then again, who wouldn't when you had the seats we do. Mom and Dad get season tickets to the plays each year for the Birmingham Broadway plays. We just lucked up this go around and we all got to go. It was me, Sid, Bailey, Mom, Dad, Erin, Maggie and Bo. It was wonderful. Me, Sid, Bo, Maggie and Bailey got the season ticket seats. You could literally see the spit coming out of the actors mouths as they were talking. Unfortunatly, you can't take pictures during the show, but here are some from right before the show.
Can you tell I had the point and shoot camera and not the big camera? It was hard for me to even use the little camera after getting used to the big one!
Dad and his usual chipper self. I think him and mom were just excited to have two grandkids along on this trip. They love this sort of thing with them.
In case you didn't believe me, check out Poppy T with his two girls. I still can't believe my 15 month old sat through it!
Here's the group, minus me. Someone has to be the photographer, right?
Bo, Maggie, Poppy T, Erin, Mimi, Sid, and Bailey
The visual effects for this play were probably the best of any play I've ever seen. And I've actually seen two plays on real Broadway in New York, so that says alot. The tornado was amazing and the witch's fire was even more amazing.
I've been singing "ding dong the witch is dead, the wicked witch of the east is dead' since the play was over.
Oh and after the play. After the play we went to The Cheesecake Factory. Yeah, half of my food and my entire piece of cheesecake is in the fridge waiting for tomorrow to come. I am stuffed from the other half of my meal. That place always amazes me when it come to atmosphere and food. Sid had never been so that was another fun thing we got to do with him. I didn't take any pictures because i'd rather eat than take pictures in a place like that. haha!
I would have to say that of all the family trips we've had since Bailey has been here, today takes the top place. She so loved the play. She watched the stage the entire time, watch their every move. She clapped and she danced and she sang a little. And we all loved the Cheesecake Factory. It was just all in all a great and wonderful day.
I'd just like to say thanks to Mimi and Poppy T for giving us their good seats and taking a side seat so we could have this experience and for the great meal afterwards. Precious family memories that we hope to make many more on days like today!!!!!
