A Pirate Play

For Austin's birthday I decided to take him back to the Dallas Children Theater to see "How I Became a Pirate". Austin loved the Christmas play there and I knew he would enjoy a play about pirates even more. I was right he LOVED it. A few weeks ago when I decided to take him I went to Barnes and Nobles and got the book and started reading it to him and told him we would bring it to the play so the characters could sign it. Of course he was super excited and therefore asked me very frequently it today was the pirate play day. On Saturday my mom suggested that he dress up like a pirate for the play and of course Austin wanted to. I did not mind, especially since he was a pirate for Halloween this year. So with his costume packed we headed to Dallas after church to run a few errands and go to the play. We went to the party store first to get a few things for his birthday party this weekend but he convinced Mimi and Grandpa that he needed a telescope, eye patch and hook to go along with his costume for the play, of course they said yes.

You can not take pictures during the show but it was such a great show. The props and scenery were amazing. I highly recommend this theater for you and your kids, I loved it as a kid and I know that Austin loves it just as much. I can't wait to take all my boys this summer to see Giggle, Giggle, Quack!!
