Wizard Of OZ
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! John and I took the boys to see The Wizard of OZ on New Year's Eve. We had dinner at Brick City Grill in Greenville...which I won't go into details about...because this is a "happy" post and that restaurant will make it go sour!! (I will blog about Brick City Grill in the next few days)
We were up high in the balcony section. Higher than I anticipated, but still not too bad. The boys were giggling with excitement when it started. The tornado made Nolan ask a zillion questions like "why is the house in the air"?
Nolan didn't like the witch and said she was ugly. Braydon yelled out when the lion was being bad scaring the tin man and scarecrow. He yelled "BAD, BAD, LION"! It was funny! Braydon also was dancing to the music.
During intermission we were all getting sleepy. This play lasts almost 3 hours!! The second half of the show Braydon did fall asleep about the time that the flying monkeys came around. Nolan stayed awake.
On the way back to the car Nolan kept singing "We're off to see the wizard".
Nolan thanked me the next morning for taking him and he said it was "Awesome Mom".
.....and that is a great way to start out the new year!
