Two months ago, iKeith and I decided that the kids were old enough to see a theater performance. I've been waiting for this day for so long and vividly remember sitting in the Buell Theater 8 months pregnant and dreaming about the day we'd be there with our family!
The Blue Man Group would be our first performance as a family!
The kids have been excited...asking almost every day if it was time to see The Blue Heads. And then they were confused by the MEGAMIND movie and thought he was a part of the The Blue Heads.
Finally...it was time and we dressed up and headed downtown. It was Kid's Night on Broadway so there were activities for the kids before the show but my kids were just interested in sitting at the bar on the top level and looking out into the parking garage.

The show was very loud. Probably too loud for Mallory who is very sensitive to noise...except when she is making it. She spent the majority of the show on my lap with my giant Victoria Secret enhanced boobs covering her ears. I was to the point if she yelled, 'I WANT TO GO HOME!' one more time I was going to take my bra off and wrap it around her head.
Alex thought it was the greatest thing he's ever seen and can't wait to go again. He thinks they come to Denver every single Christmas. He was so excited that he made me buy Captain Crunch (which they are calling CRAPtain Crunch for some reason) and told the nice lady at Wal Mart all about the show.
Mommy and Daddy....loved it! We really liked how they got the audience excited by having us read these prompters out loud. It's a high energy show and just the expressions on their faces make you laugh. My abs still hurt from all the laughing. And I now have a craving for Twinkies!
My kids made a short video for you this morning....and Mallory has mostly forgotten that she left the theater crying. Apparently, seeing the Big Blue Heads is a lot like labor...you forget the pain by the next day.
Come back Tuesday when I'll be explaining why (with pictures) I won't be entering the apartment decorating contest in my complex.
