We spent the morning finding Peter Pan costumes...
Rebe is wearing her Peter Pan cardi and Benny the waistcoat I made last year.
Rebe of course made a card for Peter, in it she asked me to write...Dear Peter, I really love your show.
I hope you will come to my house sometime soon.
Lots of love Rebe
The show itself was just brilliant. The costumes and the choreography were wonderful. There were some super props. Although there was no talking the kids followed the story, probably because they know it so well.
Rebe loved the music and kept noticing how different characters had different kinds of music. The drums of the red Indians made her tummy 'feel all funny' :-)
Benny was just fascinated. He sat on Andy's knee with his mouth open and didn't move for the whole of the first half. He laughed out loud at the funny crocodile and really enjoyed it, probably the most of all of us.During the interval Andy bought us some treats, Benny managed a few 'cris-mis-mis-mis' before the lights went down again and the rest sat uneaten as he became drawn back into the action on stage. Joa on the other hand grabbed hold of my ice cream and wouldn't let go! I had to eat the rest of it hidden behind his back :-) We had dinner out then drove back home into a gorgeous sunset. It was a completely lovely day :-) I only have one small complaint... how is making dinner a team effort when one of the team is asleep?
Thank you so much Chris! xxx
