Last night was our girl's night out to Riverdance! We were a little pinched for time. The earliest ferry we could make left Bainbridge Island at 5:30, getting to Seattle a little after 6:00. We decided to walk (I hate driving in Seattle and finding parking) and it was a little over a mile uphill to the restaurant the girls had chosen--The Cheescake Factory. Abby was so worried about missing dinner or being late for the show that she jogged the whole way!
We had about a 10 minute wait for a table and didn't get our food until 7:00, with the show starting at 7:30. Abby was nervous! The girls scarfed down their pizza (Abby) and pasta putanesca (Madeline--she's always been an adventurous eater. When she was perusing the menu, she said, "Oh, the pasta putanesca has capers and kalamata olives! I'm DEFINITELY getting that!) and we made it to the theater just in time to check our coats, rent binoculars, and get to our seats.
From watching our Riverdance video at home countless times, the girls knew exactly which dances were coming up next just by the first note.
Here they are at intermission at the beautiful Paramount Theater.
These are very sweet girls who are growing up so so fast!
I'm glad we had this fun night together.
