weekend review {Aladdin}

This weekend was a good weekend. And one of our most exciting ones to date! I have some fun news to share.... tomorrow ;) One of my friends from northern Utah came and stayed with us Friday and Saturday which was SO nice of her! I loved hanging out with Kyndra and her 3 year old so much that I totally forgot to take one picture together, sad! But she definitely made my weekend happier!
I'd been looking forward to Monday for awhile because we were finally going to see Aladdin at Tuacahn! I love to see these shows each summer and had been hearing great things about Aladdin! And there's just something about sitting in an outdoor amphitheater, surrounded by the gorgeous red rocks of St. George that makes life seem simpler and happier for a few hours! I love Tuacahn!


We bought all of that junk food during intermission, which oddly hit the spot big time at 11pm ;) And do you know what happened next? It started RAINING! It was coming down hard enough that they had to cancel the show. So we didn't even get to finish the last half of Aladdin! What a bummer. So! If you find yourself wanting a get away.... go to St. George, Utah.... and go see Aladdin! Then tell me how it ended :) And if you sleep in until 10am the next morning to recover from the late night, that will make me feel better about my sleeping in ;) ha ha!

We saw the exact same one here in St. Louis at our outdoor theatre. I don't know how they normally end it but ours ended with a lightning storm and the Genie popping out to commentator it. It was fun!
