Only at Tuacahn...

Alrighty now - yesterday we had an impulsive moment and decided to take T &W off for a cultural experience...  actually, T needs a night of culture to write about in his theatre class at school - and W was dragged along against his will.  He's forgiven me now.  I had never seen the show before and so despite the very late hour and my night blindness I got to be the designated parent for the evening.  Actually - I guess that left Q as the designated parent here at home being responsible and "parental" as I let the boys eat all sorts of junk that we sneaked into the theatre.  Well, actually - that's not quite true - they don't rightly care what you bring into Tuacahn as long as you cart out your trash...  
The show was... well, shy of spectacular - but fun all the same.  I know only a few of the songs and wanted more emotion and power during the singing and some of the acting.  Some of the characters are just plain loony... I'm not sure if that was good acting loony, or loony acting loony...  who cares right?
The cool part - the moment of the show that took my breath away was when they opened the flood gates and let the water spill over the stage - and it just kept flowing through the entire first half - off the front of the stage (where it was somehow diverted so nobody's shoes got wet!)... can't do THAT indoors - well, okay, they can - but it was WAY cool.

SO...  seeing as we got home near midnight (yes, on a school night) I was a tad bit tired all day - I will blame a lot of today on that lack of sleep...  I would love to catch up a bit, but seeing as Q is out of town for a business shin-dig I'm not likely to get wonderful sleep.  Currently M is calling from the other room how daddy needs to come and check on her and read her a story when he gets home... oops.

That flood was way worth a late night! We had our own late night of baby screaming with an ear infection to blame. Nothing like a brisk walk with baby at 2am. (BD did that part) I'm too tired to stand at that time of night.

How fun! Sounds like some memorable bonding. Way to culture the boys!

That sounds like so much fun. I really need to take my kids out there to see some productions. I love when they use the water and it is always amazing. I still remember it used in the production Utah. Your kids are being well cultured in the play sceen.

Sounds fun. I like it when you can get out of the house under the guise of 'homework'.
Is T's class an elective and he's showing some drama interest? He really was great in the family skit.....

I'll let him know that his Black Sheep Portrayal is remembered - he actually ended up in this class as a default - but he's enjoying it... I doubt we have too many thespians in our household - too much of their dad in them?

One of the things I miss most about St. George is Tuachan... The live nativity... nothing like it.
