Busy day!

Whew! It's been a whirlwind of a day! I got Clarissa off to pre-school this morning, ran to a church meeting, came home and took a shower and prettied myself up, dropped Clarissa off at a friends house and we went to see Les Miserables!!

First of all, we picked a terrible day to see it. There is a big college rivalry football game tonight (BSU vs. BYU) and the play venue is on the college campus and they had everything closed down for the game. We had to park in a dirt field a few miles from the venue and be shuttle bused in because we couldn't park on campus. It wasn't too big of a pain getting to the venue but when the play was over it was a madhouse of people trying to get on the busses to get back to their cars and the buses filled up before we could get on. We had to wait for the them to drop the first round of people off and come back for us. By that time it was downtown five o'clock traffic and the football game people were showing up so the streets were insane. It took us a solid hour after the play was over just to get back to our car.

The play was awesome though! I teared up when the opening music started because I'm a big dork like that. I love that play. Josh did great, he really enjoyed it. I worried that it would be a bit over his head because there is pretty much no spoken dialog in it, it's all sung, so that makes it a bit harder to understand what's happening, but he loved it and seemed to have no problem following the story. Next year Beauty And The Beast is coming and I'm hoping to take both boys to that one. But next time we're not going on game day!! :)

We were there last night too but we parked in the parking garage at the morrison center and there was plenty of parking. It did take a while to get out after but it wasn't too bad. The play was Awesome though. Dustin and I were talking that we don't remember some of the dirty parts in it from when we had seen it before though. I think the actors just added some unnecessary parts. Other than that it was great!

I thought it was a really good play! I loved the story. I was amazed by the kid actors (Joshua Colley is one of them), their singing was really amazing!
