Friday Family Fun

12814479_10102606279202399_3743326093515866978_nFriday night was the  family 10th birthday dinner for lovely Alice shown here with her cousin Georgia.  We feasted on Alice’s favorite  dinner, Shepherds’ Pie  complete with a heart shaped Red Velvet cake.

After dinner, we were off to a play at the Middle School.  Here we are waiting.  One of my daughter’s friends wanted to know if Bofa (David) was live texting during the play?  Katie said that he hates musicals and  uncomfortable seats, but loves his grandchildren!

I am sure that the director  knew  that Dr. Suess’  112 birthday was just past.  The play had a respectable run on Broadway.  It is an amalgamation of Dr. Suess’ most famous books and characters. It is a musical so much was sung with a job well done for these Middle Schoolers. Some very strong singers, great scenery and a very enjoyable evening.

I have to admit that my favorite was Henry, my grandson who is Alice’s brother.  He was a member of the Wikersham Brothers who were mischievous monkeys and antagonists  who tormented poor Horton the Who.  The monkey brothers, sang, danced, hopped and scampered, peeped around the curtain and generally made all in attendance laugh with the  fun  of their shenanigans.   There was Henry, shall I say typed cast,   leading   the monkey  brothers.

  1. I loved reading about your family time. Not only are your words bursting with love, but your grandchildren are blessed with your love. I know just how you feel, because I have a perfect granddaughter, too.

    Lovely Anne. Just read the advice above, and totally agree. My oldest grandchild, Alan, is married now, and next one has three kids of her own, so yeah, hang on to the small ones, and take photos at each stage. I had nine, plus three greats, but lost one grandson last summer. Memories are wonderful things, but not like having the living, breathing person here to hug.
    BTW, a heart shaped chocolate cake would still make me happy.
