Back online!

Sorry for the long silence! We were at the beach for the past week and we had a great time. We met Mom, my aunt Gail, my brother Drew and his wife Amelia, my good friend from law school Allison, her husband Jeremy, and their precious son Cooper down there. The weather was great and Caroline had a week full of fun. I'll post more about that along with pictures soon.

We returned Saturday afternoon and Sunday we had tickets for Jeff, Caroline, and me to go see the musical Annie at the Manship Theatre (Playmakers here in Baton Rouge put it on). It was Caroline's first play/musical and she loved it. It lasted almost two hours and she was mesmerized through the whole thing; she sat still the entire time (which is an accomplishment for a busy girl about to turn 3). The actors did a fantastic job; the kids who performed where truly wonderful and Jeff and I enjoyed it as much as she did. She was beaming with a beautiful smile for most of the performance and of course had to sing along to the songs she knows. Afterward, the icing on the cake for Caroline was meeting the cast members. She got to meet Annie, Daddy Warbucks, and Miss Hannigan; they are the closest things to celebrities in my girl's life, so you can imagine her excitement. She was most excited about Annie and was a little apprehensive around Miss Hannigan; Caroline obviously doesn't get it that the play wasn't real and Miss Hannigan and I were telling Caroline that she's actually a nice lady in real life. Caroline wasn't so sure, but she got to meet her anyway.  As you can see below, her smile shows how much she loved meeting Annie and she loved it that Annie and she had on the "same dress".  It was precious to watch.
