A week ago, we went to the Fresh Beat Band concert at the Kirby Center. I planned this a few months ago as something fun to do with our big girl, Macy Moose. Our world used to revolve around her (and it still partially does) and I sometimes feel guilty that I can’t give her as much attention as I used to.
She was so excited to go and even practiced some dance moves in the yard before we headed out.
I didn’t know what she would think of the whole thing, since this was our first concert and we have never even taken her to the movie theater before, but she did great. She was a little overwhelmed at first, but by the second song, she was dancing in the aisle. The show was 65 minutes long, with a 15 minute intermission. The intermission really got Macy out of the mood, because she was ready to leave after waiting those long 15 minutes of downtime. I think it would have better without the intermission, but I’m sure some kids needed to pee and others needed their overpriced sugar rush. We got a little momento to remember this fun day- a glowstick that was a bargain at $10!
Afterwards, we went out to dinner with Macy’s new BFF, Violet, and her parents. Our husbands finally met each other and the girls had lots of fun coloring and chowing down on mac and cheese. A good time was had by all.
For dinner, I enjoyed French Onion soup
and Brushetta Chicken Pasta, which was delicious and not too horrible nutritional fact-wise.
