This evening the kids and I went to see “Suessical, the Musical” at Hope Summer Repertory Theatre. I haven’t been to a play in awhile and had forgotten the energy of a live performance. The musical was funny like when Gertrude the bird sullenly walks by with her mile long tail, giving a high pitched bird like sigh. And colorful with streamers, confetti, feathers and sets. Imaginative with rollerskating fish and the cha-chaing Mayzie who leaves her egg with Horton, the elephant. We loved the dancing and the mixing of fun genres of music.

When we got home, my daughter begged me to get out the photo albums. The kids and I cuddled on the couch laughing and talking about old pictures.
