Ballet Under the Stars

We went the Ballet Under the Stars last night.  It was such a fun night. The weather was perfect for enjoying a beautiful performance.  We love free family activities that enrich and add culture to our lives!

She was oh so happy to be outside enjoying the beautiful night.

She makes this funny face all the time. It's almost a smile, almost pain. I think she's stretcheing her mouth/gums since she's teething.

He really was as pained by my taking pictures as his looks...miserable I tell ya.

The ballet was beautiful and made me want to see Swan Lake performed by professionals.

It was a beautiful evening. Croix's preschool teacher showed up and with out even planning it sat right next to us. It was dark after she arrived and she had no clue who she sat next to until Croix started growling like a dinosaur. He continued to be a dinosaur until she left. Then he returned to Brent's lap and watched to performance. Maizy put up a fight but finally fell asleep in the wrap. They are both so tired today, but it was worth it! These are the perfect moments memory's are made of that last a life time.
