Old Gem Theatre

at the Bryant Lake Bowl.

At the beginning, when the actors began going over the rules, such as we were allowed to laugh and clap and give suggestions (this being a kids’ play), we had to act out the laughing, clapping, etc.

So when it was time for the audience to practice a laugh, a gave a very loud and low laugh. The kids found it terribly funny, especially since the actors on the stage noticed as well. They also thought that it was funny when a kid was on the stage dressed in a wig, and when she was supposed to get up from being scared her wig fell off, so I said “They scared the wig right off her!”

So although the play was obviously geared toward kids much younger than the ones that I brought, the kids had a good time.

And Helena even got on stage. She tried to get Ada to go up there with her, but that wasn’t going to happen.

Bryant Lake Bowling

We got off to a great start at Neighborhood Night. There was only a short wait and so we went over to Rusty Quarters to play a couple of games, then came back to order some appetizers. By the time the appetizers came, the lane was ready, but there was enough time for Liam to spill a glass of water all over his pants.

Much to their delight.

Ada really didn’t want to bowl at first because she wanted to eat up all the appetizers before anyone else could get some. While we were getting the balls and our shoes on, Ada sat happily eating. Once she began, she was off to a roaring start, but that didn’t last too long.

Ada was feeling really silly. She kept bouncing around and I had to tell her more than once to get her hair out of the food that was on the table behind her. Eventually, she just fell off the chair, cried, and then calmed herself down. Here she is with the food behind her looking sad after she had gotten herself back up.
