Thursday : And the Bard Plays On

Last August our summer was cut short by its cool temps and rain throughout the month.
It was a difficult thing to accept.

Not this time.
I am relishing our summer this year... gorgeous summertime weather (including rain once in a while), peppered with a few Too Hot's.
Our friends were over for another day, and we were living as best we could.

After a late night out seeing the Perseid showers, we slept in and puttered slowly--ScoobyDoo and a bit of computer play were in definite order.

While pancakes and the rest of breakfast was being made, slowly everyone came alive.


Godzilla play for the other two.


This was the third day of these two being together, every moment.


Trev is an introvert, so it's surprising that these two blend together so well.
I look at them, and I know they'll be just fine when they're apart--puttering in their own way when they're alone, doing what they like to do solo--but when together, it's just so easy.
And let's not forget comical.  They're freakin' hilarious.
As I mentioned on fb, fully knowing the answer, I watched them, and asked "Do you two get tired of each other's company, ever?"
"No."  Both at the same time.

Music!
Maddie had a music sheet she had made (her own design) and she and her friends were trying out her system.  I love that this keyboard gets so much play-- playing songs, learning new songs, freestyle, noise tracks, whatever.  Play on!



 Maddie and Soleil left to our friends' house,
and the boys were ready for monster action, with Pacific Rim.


Soon enough we got ready for our evening--
dinner out, at dad's work (my current favorite salad for me!)


then to retrieve Maddie and our friends...
and off to the Children's Theatre to enjoy Shakespeare.
As You Like It.


They cracked me up--
every one of them (besides Trev) was inspired to give their interpretation of The Bard.





 Photo bomb!

Next while waiting, they found the sign for the next performance in the Shakespeare Festival
--Hamlet.
Of course this sparked much story-telling and interpretation, as well.  (I had no idea they knew so much about Hamlet.)
Looking forward to that, next week!

Soon we were allowed in, and the play began.

The greatest part for me was watching Trevelyn enjoy himself so much. 

Afterwards, the cast were in the lobby, greeting everyone, and Soleil and Maddie hugged Rosalind and Celia in their wedding gowns.  "They were my favorites!"

On the way home, the hilarity continues, with "Thou art sheep!" and many favorite quotes and quips and reenactments.
Awesome.

It's a goodly sort of life.
