“Beside you is where I will stay” (side show)

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

First of all, if you have never hear of the musical “Side Show”, its worth looking into. The music and lyrics are heart wrenching and describe a sibling relationship that I think is one of the most beautiful.  It reminds me a lot of what I hope for Sophie and Evan. Pictures I caught this […]

“Springtime! Springtime!” (Producers)

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

We went up to Fair Play on Friday night. First time we left after dinner – hoping the kids would sleep on the way up. They did! Transfering to beds in FP was easy, it took about 20 minutes to get them settled, but all in all the trip with the  lighter traffic, and quiet […]

“You’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade” (As Thousands Cheer)

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Easter weekend was a big one! We left the city on Friday afternoon and headed to Fair Play. We wanted to be back in the city for Easter dinner with the Cleary clan, but also knew that we were due for a quiet weekend in Fair Play, so decided it was worth the trip! We […]
