How was your weekend? Mine was busy, but with all good things! Annie the Musical (Yes, I will stop talking about it after today! ) started Thursday night, continued Friday night and ended with a noon and 6:00 show on Saturday night.
Friday night our son and his girlfriend were going together to watch it (we had all seen it together as a family Thursday night) so after dropping him off, hub and I went to Mojito Tapas nearby and had a dinner together before I went to the second half (which is mostly when my son appears). It was a nice quiet time to catch up.
I got home around 10:00 Friday night but was up and at ’em early Saturday morning – I had let myself run out of coffee at home so what’s a gal to do? Skinny Blonde Latte – yum! I had to get groceries and Easter basket stuff for hub, the boys, and my mom. I ran to Trader Joe’s, Kroger, and CVS.
I resisted the urge at TJ’s, but they are gorgeous! This is my favorite flower.
After dropping son off at the theater for call time and the other son left for his flea market and a movie with his girlfriend and her mom, hub and I went to support our sister-in-law and brother-in-law’s business. They were having their start of the boating season open house! Go to Marine Sales and Service for all of your boating needs if you are local! (This is not a paid advertisement!)
L’Boatique was back – I showed this cute little shop on wheels to you last spring – it has swimwear, accessories, towels, sunglasses. It’s a really cute concept!
How cute is this?
I left the open house and went to the second half of the play and got lunch for my son before he had to be ready for the next and final show.
Then, my mom and sister arrived and hub’s dad arrived. The two men hung out and my mom and sister and I went back to Mojito for some light bites before the show.
We got ham and chicken croquets below,
guacamole with plantain chips
and meatballs but I forgot the photo.
All of our family in attendance just loved seeing our boy in the show! His brother attended 3 out of 4 shows and I went to part or all of all 4. This was our first experience with a musical and I am just in awe of the adults who run it and all of the 110 kids who were a part of it. It was an unforgettable experience and I’m a little sad it’s over.
Easter morning was breakfast casserole, Easter baskets, church, laundry, sitting outside in the beautiful sun, and a nice dinner to end the day.
I also got to see three former students – two at the musical and one at church. This is one of the best things about teaching; I love getting to see them again!
Even though this weekend made me so happy, it was bittersweet. My Dad would’ve just been overjoyed to see his grandson act and sing. He would’ve loved the jokes and he would’ve been singing the songs and driving my mom crazy! He loved Easter, too.
On that note, have a productive Monday!
