Me. Note the cute 4th shirt. It says "lifelibertyhappiness"We got to the park when the gates opened at 4:30. The show wasn't set to start until 8. (I neglected to tell Mike this little fact. I wanted a good spot!) We had packed a cooler full of snacks and drinks. We brought a blanket and low backed chairs. We were set.
The Umbrella Cocoon
And watched this little guy.
He kinda broke my heart and made my uterus do little flips. He was so dang cute. And he must have been around music his entire little life so far because the kid had rhythm. He conducted his little heart out with his flag (you can barely see it in the pic because he was waving it around). And when I say he conducted, he really did. He was on beat and everything. Then, when the song was over, he would take the biggest and most dramatic bow you've ever seen. It was amazing.
(In the above picture, does anyone else think it looks like the Phil is being swallowed by a whale? Because let me tell you, that's all I could think about while the lighting was like that.) The music was, of course, great. Lots of patriotic music (duh). They did a tribute to the armed forces where they played all of the branches songs and had people stand if they'd been in that service. Mike got to stand for the Army. as he pointed out, he was the youngest one standing my at least 2 generations. But he got kinda teary all the same. They even had a broadway guy come in and sing four songs. Hooray!! And to the list of things I love Broadway showtunes. This just gets better and better. And then, there were FIREWORKS!!! Yaaaay!!!!
(Oh and the free photo software I found is picnik. It's totally free and really, really easy to use. I LOVE it!!!
(In completely unrelated news, it's cd13 and I got a high on my CBEFM! w00t! And I'll be caling the doctors office today to hopefully get the results of the bloodwork.)
