ballet under the stars

We don't have much of a weekend review because Eric worked and I holed up at home with Mia and cleaned house, ha ha! But Friday night was such a fun, happy, magical night! Our neck of the woods hosted an outdoor ballet, lakeside! The best part was that the event was totally free! This was basically the only thing on my wishlist in September that I was hoping to experience with Mia before baby arrived, and I'm so glad we were able to go!

 My posture does NOT help the fact that I look like there's a full grown baby in my belly, ha ha!
I dressed Mia up like a little ballerina which she loved! She got to make a little wand and get her face painted. I wanted to sway her decision but in the end she was so set on getting "Ariel on my HEAD!" that I couldn't say no, ha ha! And oh how she loved her Ariel!! I let her pick which food truck we ate at (okay, she got a quesadilla and I got a waffle, of course she ate just as much of mine as hers, ha ha!) I was curious to see how she would sit for the ballet but once it started she was totally entranced! She started moving her arms around and narrating the dance for me :) After a couple songs Eric showed up and that made Mia's night complete! We ended up moving to the edge of the lawn (I just couldn't handle sitting) and Mia danced with her wand for the next hour! It was SO ADORABLE! Mia had the BEST night and I'm so glad we got to go!

So glad you got to enjoy one last hooray with Mia before the little guy makes his appearance! That sounds like the perfect Mommy/ Daughter date. So wish we had something similar here in NC.
