When I was about Alicia's age my great aunt, hmmm or maybe my grandma I cannot remember, bought tickets for us to go see Peter Pan at the Hult Center. I LOVED it. At least I think I did. I really can't remember much except what mom has told me. But I know I must have because I loved going to the Hult, even as a child. I love watching ballets. They are beautiful. I am not artistic AT ALL so to see these people create such magic with their bodies just moves me.
So, as you can imagine, I am really looking forward to taking my daughter back to the Hult to watch Peter Pan tomorrow! Last year my mom told me they were coming and I decided to forgo The Nutcracker, which I hope will become our annual or biannual Christmas tradition, and she bought tickets for this instead. For months Alicia has looked forward to this. Hopefully tomorrow night I will have some pictures from our afternoon out.
Then my parents are having us over for an Easter egg hunt and dinner! Should be a great day.
And by the way, if you have never been to the Hult Center you should GO. Eugene is known for their artsy people and some of the best have come through the Hult Center. No need to always go to Portland.
O, and I should add that the boys are going to a really really great golf shop down there when we go. Ben got money there for Christmas and he has some things he needs to get. So they will have some male sport bonding while Alicia and I are off doing female ballet bonding. :)
