Our time together started with getting ready to go to the theater. No, not the movies, the actual theater.
Elizabeth picked out her pink tulle dress.
We then headed to the Barter Theatre.
The Barter is super famous in our area. Lots of famous people have gotten their start there (check out their site), and it's the state theatre of VA. So needless to say, I've never seen a show there I haven't loved.
We went to see The Barter Players (especially for kids) perform The Three Little Pigs.
It was on their second stage, which is attached to their cafe. We stopped for some apple juice first.
Elizabeth found the headphones to listen to some of the other shows. She loved that.
Next we found our seats.
She wasn't too sure what to think about the scenery.
And then wanted me to stop with the picture taking...
The show started and I was nervous...what if the Big Bad Wolf scared her?? What if she cried??
She. Was. Mesmerized!!
They did a 70's music theme with it. Adorable and funny for the parents too. So well done!!
I was shocked though. Elizabeth stayed silent the entire time and after it was over, turned and looked at me.
"Can we see the pigs, again??"
I knew she LOVED it then. She doesn't often ask to see things over again, unless she likes it.
We got to meet the actors after. She was shy and it took a little prompting to get her to talk to them.
|One of the wolves.|
|Her favorite piggy.|
After the show, we went to our favorite local restaurant in town. The best potato soup ever!!
|Elizabeth enjoyed some sandwich and fried corn.|
But I can say, my fears were unfounded.
Because the Wolf was her favorite...so much so, she asked if we could take him home with us.
Not sure if I could have explained arriving home with a strange man in a wolf costume to my hubby or not...
