Pretty much all this week we have had this amazing beautiful weather and we have been spending a lot of time at parks and walking around lakes and whatnot. We also had ballet Tuesday and the St. Paul Ballet company put on performances from their spring selection. I can't say enough about how much I love ballet Tuesday, the 2nd Tues of each month at the Landmark center. It is casual enough, a lunch time that just happens to have ballet going on in the middle - that you don't have to stress about the kids running around or talking. Yet the performances are really worth watching - along with the beautiful dancing, there are little lessons in classical ballet, the history and technical terms explained and demonstrated, different techniques are taught. And best of all - Riley and Joe love it. They are riveted and live for the moment at the end they can rush up to the performers, get a little toy or treat from the basket, and have a "lesson" with real ballerinas :)
Well, we must be off. Happy Thursday everyone!
