a cool view

ryan snapped this picture a few weeks ago in the theatre during rehearsal for a dance show and i didn't see it until recently.  i thought the lighting looked cool with all of the colors!

cats do what they want

leko always does whatever he pleases.  he runs our household, and he knows it.  i thought this buzzfeed article about cats doing what they want was pretty funny. i especially laughed at #11, that was my favorite.

phil torres took video of thousands of monarch butterflies in mexico and they sound like a waterfall.  you can listen here to his footage.  pretty cool!

"take me home, colleen"

this past weekend, we had a show in the theatre on saturday called "take me home, colleen."  it was different from our normal lineup since it was a folk-ballad irish-history play which recounted the time of the potato famine in ireland in the 1800s.

the show incorporated old photos from the 1800s along with present-day video of ireland, and it was a fund-raiser for the families of two police officers from our area who were killed in the line of duty.  it was interesting to meet the performers from ireland, and the person who wrote the production.

this weekend we're on to the next set of shows: 
two different dance recitals and a local college's graduation.

choo choo

the weather on sunday for mother's day was so incredibly cold, dreary, and rainy.  since we couldn't do any outdoor activities, we decided to take a little train ride around part of the area where we live.  it was a lot of fun and felt like we were stepping back in time.  it was a great activity for a rainy day too!

the world's best cat toy!

anyone who knows ryan knows that he loves to play with theatre lights.  for mother's day, ryan did a little light design in our living room / dining room for lunch.  everyone liked it, including leko.  theatre lights have to be the world's best cat toy!

a wrapping and unwrapping helper

leko loves to be involved in anything that included boxes, tissue paper, and wrapping paper.  when we were wrapping our gifts for mother's day, it took a long time until we could get the box back from him in order to wrap it.  he kept sitting in the box, attacking the tissue paper, and "stapling" the cardboard with his teeth!

when it came time for our mamas to unwrap their gifts, leko was there to help again and to lay claim to the wrapping paper.

what a cutie!
love, laurie

mother's day 2019

our families got together yesterday at our house for lunch to celebrate our mamas on mother's day.  we made a thai-inspired lunch with strawberry shortcake for dessert.  it was nice to get together with everyone on mother's day.  we're so grateful for our mamas, not just on mother's day but year round, and for all that they do for us!

happy mother's day!
love, laurie
