A is my go-to girl for our theatre review dates, and after almost all of them she announces, "we should take brother and daddy to see this!" Brother is almost always too young for the shows in question, but he has read the Pinkalicious books a million times with his sister and, as A was quick to point out, the show has a brother and sister in it - so it was obviously made for them. And she was right, he loved it.
Before the show, we did some exploring in beautiful Glen Echo Park.
This boy has a bone to pick with Glen Echo: there is in fact no echo to be found at the park, something he discovered after shouting, "echo! Echo! ECHO!!!" with no response.
A and I went on the beautiful Dentzel Carousel on our last visit to see Pinkalicious, and she thought it was very, very funny to hear that mommy and daddy once went on the same carousel on a date many years before she was born (and she was disappointed I couldn't remember which animals we'd been on). On Saturday, she rode the carousel with her daddy, who also rode it as a little boy (he recalls riding on an ostrich as a child, a memory that pleased A very much).
