Well, I survived the trip but just barely! I don’t know why I thought it would be easy to take for girls on a 4 hour drive. We survived though and had a blast.
My biggest regret is not giving ourselves more time. The girls really wanted to go swimming and I wish that we would have left earlier to give us more time in the city. Once we go there it only gave us 1 hour to swim and quite honestly we could have done without the swimming. I was hoping to do nails and have time to actually eat dinner but it just didn’t work out. Summertime in Idaho means construction city and because the weather has been less than summerly lately I didn’t even think about construction. We ended up eating only a block away from the venue but because I didn’t really know where it was we drove up to the parking garage and ended up almost being late as it took us 40 minutes to drive one block. Which made pictures before not possible.
We made it though and the girls had a blast! Some of the highlights:
The dresses!!! The girls LOVED them!!!!
The binoculars!!! As before I didn’t buy the best seats so I wanted to make sure we could see every detail of the show. We bedazzled them before hand, and got a lot of compliments on them.
Because of the time issue my pictures were after the show in the dark, yuck. As I was trying to get a half way decent picture with the trailers in the background some of the cast came out.
We were able to meet Donna Sheridan (Kaye Tuckerman) and the daughter Sophie Sheridan (Chloe Tucker). For those who don’t know this is a really rare opportunity, regular local plays it is common to meet the cast but not with these touring productions. I must say Kaye Tuckerman was simply beautiful too, honestly I don’t think I have ever talked to anyone so beautiful in my life. She was so nice and the girls were so impressed that she knew we drove such a long way to watch and that it was Princess’s birthday. Apparently, they didn’t listen to me talking to her directly. We spent about 5 minutes with them and it was really neat to be able to talk to them.
On the way back we stopped off and had lunch at Twin Falls. The girls were too scared to go all the way on the observatory when they discovered that some of it was off of the ledge.
We are home and I am very glad that I was able to give the girls an opportunity to see an amazing show.
