A few weeks ago, Mama and I got to take the kids to see their first play. Since Marcos and I met as Theater majors in college, this was a very special day for me. Naturally, I assume that the kiddos have theater in their blood, and I couldn't wait to see how they would fall in love with the stage like their daddy and I did when we were little.
Since we are such huge Tangled fans here, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take the kiddos to see Rapunzel. Of course, it was nothing like the movie. It actually stuck closer to the original story, which I had completely forgotten until I saw it acted out. Later, Merrick said, "Mommy, I think that was Tangled 2."
My mama is the best mom and grandmother in the entire world. I am so grateful that she lives nearby and can go to me with special events like this. I love that she is going to be in so many of the kids' childhood memories.
We dressed Scoutie Girl in her Rapunzel dress (pajamas actually...shhh....don't tell!) to see the play. She's only two and she already loves to dress up. I definitely see a closet full of princess dresses in our future.
The twins and I went down to the stage to check things out before the show started.
I was incredibly surprised that the kids paid attention during the entire show. Typically, when we see a movie, I am chasing them all over the theater. Not the case here.
Dee lovin' up on Merrick. :)
Woo-hoo! What a great family field trip. I can't wait to take them to their next show. After the show, my mom was already talking about taking them to auditions. Once a stage mother, always a stage mother, I guess.
