Yesterday Ryan and I took Emma and Elizabeth to see the Nutcracker ballet. We had really nice seats- only 5 rows from the front.
We arrived just as they started letting people go in the theater, so aside from the long walk from our parking space, we were able to just walk right in. Then the half hour waiting game began. (How many exit signs are there? etc.)
At intermission, they gave us free hot cider that took us about 10 minutes to drink. It took us that long to cool it off enough to taste it.
Emma totally got into it. Her eyes were pretty glued to the stage and dancers. Elizabeth enjoyed about the first hour, before becoming a wiggle worm.
