We additionally bumped into so many acquainted faces that night! Tucson is a small world, however feels smaller the longer we keep right here.
BEFORE fall competition, the Pilot took P to a birthday celebration whereas I took Liv to bounce, so P had double enjoyable occasions. The children performed within the impediment programs, received their faces painted, did the cake stroll and bingo factor, and it was a blast.
Saturday morning, P had a soccer sport, I took care of some work stuff and chores, after which one in every of Liv’s finest buddies came to visit for a sleepover.
We took the crew to sushi at Ginza,
(costume is right here! Heads up that it runs massive, so when you’re in between sizes, I’d measurement down)
after which picked up one in every of P’s buddies so she would have a buddy, too. We headed to the mall, the place the youthful youngsters hit up the large arcade with the Pilot, the older women and I went to Claire’s and received boba teas.
(they’re 10 and method cooler than I’ll ever be)
Sleepover breakfast was crepes! I hadn’t made them in years, however used this recipe (added just a little vanilla to it) they usually got here out very well! The children liked constructing their very own crepes with bananas, strawberries, Nutella, marshmallow fluff, and we served all the things up with crispy bacon, hash browns, and orange juice.
Later that afternoon, we noticed Lion King at Centennial Corridor! TBH I are likely to really feel just a little meh about Lion King (I believe I simply overdid it from watching the film 1800 occasions within the 90s with my JTT obsession), however the reside manufacturing is so completely different. The costumes are set design are really breathtaking, and all of us liked it.
Additionally value noting that Broadway in Tucson has STEPPED UP their theatre snack and drinks sport. They’d charcuterie containers, hummus and veggie containers, chocolate gummy worm pudding for the children, wine, beer, big cookies — 10/10 advocate a snack cease when you’re seeing a present.
Sunday evening dinner was filet with asparagus, do-it-yourself sourdough, salad package (we’re followers of the dill pickle salad child from Complete Meals), and just a little wine to cap off the weekend.
