I Wish I Could Bottle the Magic of Sundance!

For Paul's birthday I bought tickets for us to go up to Sundance (one of my most favorite places in the world!)

to see The Sound of Music! It is the perfect date night activity and we were both really excited to go.

My mom came down to watch the kids. Before we left I asked Emma to take some pictures of us. My mom got to laughing because on all the pictures our expression never changed. Soooo 

right before Emma took another picture I did something wildly inappropriate (I grabbed him) and she captured this expression. Ha ha ha! That got everyone to laugh. 

I had bought the barbecue dinner to go along with our tickets. After we hiked up the ski hill we got to relax in the shade of pine trees, right next to a little stream and eat a delicious chicken breast sandwich, red skinned potato salad and baked beans. It was all really good but the atmosphere was my favorite part. 

I love the sound of running water.

After we ate we waited in line for a bit and then we got to sit and wait for the show. 

Excuse me lady, could you get your bum out of my shot please? 

Bum lady took this picture for us. 

Here is a glimpse of the set before the show started. The show was wonderful. The little bitty actress that played Gretel was sooo adorable. The cast was all very talented. It was about 63 degrees up there. We got to see the stars and sit together wrapped in a blanket. Heavenly! I can't even tell you how perfect the night was. It was magical and romantic. The setting, the show, the weather, the food, the company. All wonderful. I hope this becomes an annual tradition. They had us vote on which show we'd like next year. I don't even really care. If they are putting on a play, I'm there!
