The Music Man

My parents came down and took Elise to see The Music Man for a belated birthday present. It was cute my Dad was telling her all about how when he saw his first musical in college it changed his life. I loved seeing musicals growing up and I am glad Elise is getting the opportunity to do the same. They did such a great performance, we have still been singing some of the songs around the house. We also ate some yummy Olive Garden afterwards, so it was definitely a winning day :) We attended the Pioneer Day Parade and the kids had fun getting candy and we tried not to get too hot. We also got the game pie face now every time I go to the store the kids ask, "Mom don't forget to get some whip cream."

First Steps, the Zoo and More!

Q is walking! He took his first steps at 9 months old! Early walker just like Elise and Carter. Carter still wins, he took his first steps at only only 8 months old, not that it's a competition or anything though :) We went and checked out the local zoo. They have definitely made some nice changes including a new petting zoo and bringing out animals for the kids to see close up and enjoy. I also took the kids to see Beauty and the Beast at the Stadium, it was fun despite the summer thunderstorm that delayed the start of the movie. Kids had fun singing along to the movie. We have also made lots of trips to the library this summer checking out books and playing on the computers.
