A Tale of Two Cities

This Friday I went out for some much needed girl time with Becky, Natalie, and Randee (my two sisters-in-law and my soon to be sister-in-law). I took them down to dinner and to see the play A Tale of Two Cities at the Hale Center Theater. It was phenomenal! It helped that I had recently re-read the book so it was fresh on my mind. I loved the guy that played Mr. Cruncher! He did such a fabulous job endearing his part as a character I didn't particularly like in the book. In fact at one comical line a lady was laughing in the audience so hard that they had to pause for a minute before continuing. I think they were very pleased. A special treat for us was that the author of the original Broadway play was there and had coordinated during production with the Hale Theater. She got a standing ovation from the entire theater and it was really special to watch her enjoy her work (she was sitting two people in front of me). Also she brought a large group from New York with her to see the final play so I am sure this brought good press for the theater group. I guess this was the first off Broadway performance so that's pretty cool. Anyway if you missed it sorry it's last show was Saturday but you can find the music online...
Anyway it was great to hang with the girls and talk about all the fun stuff that only sisters chat about. Thanks girls for the wonderful night!

Front Runner to Gateway

We decided to take an outing to the Gateway for Nate's day off. We packed a lunch and the girls and loaded up on the Front Runner. A family day pass is only $13.50 and we would have spent that in gas and parking for Salt Lake. We spent a grand time watching the girls play by the squirt fountains and reading books in Barnes and Noble. After icecream in the food court and a couple of visits to stores we headed back to the Trax and onto the Front Runner. Abby slept the trip home and Nate entertained the girls with their new books, Rapunzel and Berenstein Bears and the Messy Room.

April Fools Wedding

It's fun to think their anniversary will always be April Fools, but a couple in our ward were married today. The girls just got their darling Easter dresses from my mom (she took them for a day of shopping to pick whatever dress they wanted and yes-I got some too), so of course they wanted to wear them to the wedding. Here they are:

I can't believe I don't have a photo of Abs in hers. Maybe that's when we realized we were going to be late. Well I will get one soon.
