Friday 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.
Isn’t he adorable? I have been blessed with perfect grandchildren!
