I can’t even begin to tell you how much the girls loved seeing Annie! The show was on Friday evening, and I didn’t tell them about it until that afternoon. When I first told them, they looked sort of confused. They kept asking “You mean like Annie and the orphanage?” When they finally realized what it was all about, they proceeded to serenade me with their rendition of “It’s a hard knock life…” for at least an hour.
Before the show we ate dinner at Ruby Tuesday, which I haven’t been to in forever! I had the Asian Glazed Salmon, and my Mom had some sort of a chicken thingamajig. It was all delicious! We also had a coupon for buy one dinner get one free, so you can’t beat that!
Here is Lainey at dinner:
We also made an interesting discovery at dinner:
Stop the presses people, because Alivia finally has a loose tooth! Yes, for reals this time!
I would have taken more pictures at dinner, but my Mom yelled at me. Apparently, she does not appreciate the fine art of picture documentation for blogging! Ugh. After dinner, we shopped around Meijer for a little while. Meijer is not exactly my idea of shopping, but it is for my Mom since she claims to “not get out much.” She did find some cute shoes though, and a birthday present for Lainey.
We finally made our way to the theatre, and were delighted to find that our seats were in the second row! Not only were they in the second row, but they were right in the middle too, it was perfect!
When we sat down it was about 20 minutes until the show started, and while we were sitting there Lainey started freaking out! She kept saying she was going to be scared, and that Miss Hannigan was scary, and that it was going to be loud, and it was going to be dark, and blah blah blah… My Mom kept looking at me like “Oh shit.”
Luckily, she was perfectly fine once the show started. The only problem was, she was so excited that she kept talking, really loudly! I couldn’t take any pictures during the show, but I did snap a few before and one at the very end.
The girls with my Mom:
This was the whole cast singing “Tomorrow” at the very end of the show. Behind Annie, is the lady who played Miss Hannigan. To the left of Miss Hannigan are Grace and Daddy Warbucks.
And my favorite picture of all:
We all had the best time ever, and I’m so glad we went! I think this is something the girls will remember for a long time.
