Off to see the Wizard

We took the girls to see their first play on Saturday - the travelling production of the Wizard of Oz at the Progress Energy Center downtown. They talk about the movie all the time, so I thought it would be good for them to see something like that.
Because of how sick we'd been, I waited until the week before to buy tickets. Then I didn't tell them what we were going to see until we got there. Their most exciting part was dressing up to go. Madeleine got a new dress at Target that morning, and they're both wearing my jewelry. As for makeup, they've got on a little powder and neutral eyeshadow along with their Little Mermaid lip balm.
We got there just in time, so there wasn't a whole lot of waiting around in our seats. I could tell they got excited when there was something they recognized from the movie. But we were pretty far back, so you couldn't really see facial expressions like we did with the Wiggles last year. We had skipped nap, so both girls were kind of worn out. They spent the whole second half on my lap, and Madeleine started asking to leave with about 20 min. left.
But they did have fun. Madeleine wanted to dress like Dorothy today, and Lily's been talking about the witch as well.
