This past weekend, we were given four tickets to see the performance of “Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook” at the Theatre Of Youth. Our excited kindergartener practically skipped her way into the theatre, excited to see the characters she’s been reading about in school come to life on the stage. Our son (age 3.5), was equally as excited – although we were admittedly a bit anxious to see how he would sit for an hour+ long performance.
Procrastinators, unite! It’s Christmas Eve-Eve, AKA the time of year where you almost always suddenly remember someone you were supposed to buy a gift for and completely forgot about. Just me? If you’re finding yourself debating on going out to the store or cashing in on an “IOU” this year, fear not. Disney on Ice presents Dare to Dream has a solution for you!
It was a true Christmas miracle – we had a FREE WEEKEND DAY and were offered an opportunity to spend the afternoon together at the theatre. (I knew my self-imposed holiday prep deadline would pay off.) We had yet to experience a performance at the Allendale Theatre, and all four of us were looking forward to checking it out. Parking is a tad tricky, but arriving 45 minutes before show time rewarded us a convenient spot across the street.
Last weekend, we were given the opportunity to check out the Beyond the Bump event at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Since I’m not pregnant, I wasn’t sure what to expect of the event or what I would get from it (other than a slight hint of baby fever which I have since managed to kick, but that’s neither here nor there). I went with two of my girlfriends, one who has an almost-two year old little boy and the other who is a first time mom-to-be due at the end of May!
The Science “Moo-seum” (as my three-year-old likes to call it) has always given me a nostalgic feel. A staple in the middle school field trip roadshow, I remember really enjoying The Buffalo Museum of Science as a kid – especially the freeze-dried astronaut ice cream that they sell in the gift shop.
