Do the Jitterbug

My oldest nephew, Wilson (aka Wilbur Doug), and the Jitterbug Productions group from Fairhope, AL traveled to Kentucky to perform their rendition of Mulan, Jr. for a convention held in Lexington. Chris, Noah, and I headed up there for the day, as it's only about 3.5 hours from here, to see Kelly and Wilson. When we got to the Children's Theater I had specific instructions to ask for the usher with straight black hair wearing a black skirt and silver shirt. We were cutting it close on time (darn you, GoogleMaps) and we could tell the place was packed. The theater manager tried to tell me that we would have to sit in the lobby and watch it on the television. I told him, politely, not so much. Luckily he came to his senses when I told him that my sister was saving seats on the top row and he sent us in. Good choice, mister, goooood choice.

Noah loved all the colors and the music and was very mesmerized for the duration of the performance...almost two hours! Pretty good for a five month old. We are so glad we got to see the performance and it was well worth the trip. Wilson's face lit up when he found us in the audience...made me so proud. We grabbed a bite to eat, had a mini photo session outside the theater, and then parted ways. It was a quick but wonderful treat!

Here are a few photos from the day:

Wilson is all the way to the right, smiling at us.

Stuck in the middle of the avalanche, now in the bad army.

Kelly, Wilson, Noah, and the color of the walls.
The boys...
Good lookin' fellas

We had a great time, though it was a very quick trip that made for a longish day.
But we knew we had a special visitor meeting us when we got back home...
