Fun family day

I've blogged before about our trips to the Center for Puppetry Arts, and how much we enjoy it...well, recently I won (from a drawing at the blog YaYaKids, thank you!) a "Family Fun Pack" of four tickets to their show, "The Emperor's New Clothes." We went on Saturday, and it was wonderful! It was a one-man show, very well done (as is typical of the Center), and on a side note, the puppeteer explained the moral of the story prior to the show (tell the truth no matter what!) and very gracefully handled the unclothed Emperor (who was a pig -- thereby removing any issues!).Afterwards, Bruce treated us to lunch at Olive Garden...we had a great day together! By the time we got home, Abigail was coughing like crazy, and I realized that I was definitely coming down with the cold she's had. She and I spent yesterday holed up at home feeling nasty, and today I am trying to pretend I feel great...after all, my parents arrive today and this is our annual week to spend at the pool, enjoying the summer sunshine and relaxing days...so I can't be sick! :/ Abigail goes today for her follow-up chest x-ray to make sure the pneumonia is gone. Considering that her cough is back, I'm glad we're checking it again.
In other random moments from this weekend, I canned some more pickled okra...
...and here is David, in quite the conglomeration of outfits!

That puppetry place looks amazing...and I'm just a bit too far north to think anything positive about the okra! :-) But the puppetry place looks amazing! :-)

Thanks for the great sample of the pickled okra-I am a convert! The kids imaginations are sure honed after a visit to a center like the puppetry one........

Is David Robin-man or Spider-hood? :)

I'm so glad you enjoyed your family 4 pack to Puppetry Arts! We were also there Saturday at the 1:00 show. Maybe the same one you all went to?? I can't get the voice of the walrus out of my head -- bleh bleh bleh...
Best to you! Beth (Ya Ya Mama)
