Not the best picture, but this is where I was... Daytona Beach. It really is a great beach. This was a great vacation. Hubby and I threw this vacation together at the last minute after two KILLER work weeks. We were both exhausted and we packed to leave home in two hours. Needless to say, we forgot a lot of things. So what, we had a great time. We are both sunburned, but we are relaxed and recharged.
The last thing we did on our vacation was to attend a community theater play in DeLand, FL. We did this last year. I don't remember the play, but it was funny and then we went to this GREAT restaurant afterward. Anyway, in my mind, my husband and I had the best time on this vacation, last year. I felt like we really connected and had a wonderful time together. So, of course, I wanted to recreate this experience. Well, you can never go home, don't cha know. I went on line and ordered tickets for the community theater play. They were presenting Into The Woods. Who doesn't love a Stephen Sondheim musical. Click, I bought the tickets. I hope you take the time to click the link. Oh yeah, I bought the tickets. Then ... I noticed ... the play ... was ... Into The Woods, ... Jr. Huh? What does that mean? So, I looked at the website more carefully. This was an elementary school production of Into The Woods. This was a production of Into The Woods with third, fourth and fifth grade actors and actresses. Oh yeah. I told my husband what I did. (remember, I also booked the hotel room, on the beach, with the view of the hallway) Do you want me to cancel the tickets? My sweet man said, "Oh no. Don't cancel. We'll go and we will have a great time." And we did. The play was adorable. We were the only members of the PACKED HOUSE not related to a member of the cast. I laughed, I cried, I enjoyed myself so much. If you ever have an opportunity to see kids perform, and you aren't related to ANY of them, do it.
So, we will finish driving home and wash our clothes and go back to work. Vacation was too short. It always is. I can't wait until next year.
