"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

At the Ballet

Our kid is turning out to have quite the affinity for dancing, so when her dance teacher told us about the Alice In Wonderland ballet she had helped choreograph, we went on a mommy-daughter date to see it:

The makeup and costumes were so creative, and so were the imaginative parts that would normally be difficult to show on stage. They pulled it off, though, and captivated P-double-B's attention until the last 15 minutes (when she emphatically declared that she was done watching and wanted it to be over). I'm just happy we made it that far, silly turkey!

After the performance was over, we joined the throngs to meet the cast and talk to them. My favorite part of the performance was the caterpillar who was comprised of 5 people. Pepper's favorite part was when the Mad Hatter kept fixing Alice's hair and making her wear different hats!

This was the first real ballet we had been to together, and I'm sure there will be many more to come. Have you ever been to a ballet before? If so, which one?
