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!

Sounds like fun. I don't think mine would sit anywhere near that long

I know you guys had a lot of fun. I'm sorry that stupid restuarant gave you so much trouble. I won't ever go there after hearing your experience!

2009 will be a fantastic year for happiness, love, good health and prosperity for all of us, family and friends. So glad that the experience of seeing the Wizard of Oz was lasting so that you received that wonderful morning accolade from Nolan. You are an "AWESOME MOM"
