Meanwhile, Micah and I enjoyed a long weekend at home. We spent most of our time playing at the house together, but we ran a few errands, enjoyed some special treats, and had a very special date out on Saturday night. We went to the Denver Center of Performing Arts to see Hanson play with the Colorado Symphony! This was a birthday gift from my parents and my grandpa and it was so much fun!
Here are a few pictures I took from our time doing school at the park and playing at the house. I wasn’t even going to do school on Friday with Ethan being gone, but Micah was pretty motivated and wanted to do lots of writing and reading while we were at the park!
The only other pictures/videos I took of our weekend together was on our date. Micah was pretty nervous about the whole thing so I was holding to the idea of staying for the whole concert very, very loosely in my mind. We tried to go to the Cheesecake Factory before the concert, but the wait was too long. Micah was pretty pumped to get grilled cheese and Sprite at a burger pace next door instead.
We arrived plenty early and ended up staying until the very end!! We even got to see them perform for the standing ovation the crowd gave them. I was so pleased!! It was really a unique concert and lots of fun. Micah knew a few of the songs, but I would say they played a good 50% of totally new songs they wrote for this tour. He took most of our videos, particularly if he knew the song. =) Micah called them the “boon dot kids” (aka mmmbop kids) all night, which had me laughing so hard.
We had to get a video of “boondot” and also “Tragic Symphony” (which he had listened to on repeat for weeks now…):
Micah took a brief “nap” during intermission (aka halftime) and was excited to hear one of our favorite songs, “I was born”.
We made it to the very end and he was clearly not tired at all. =)
Love this guy!! It was so special to get to enjoy a weekend with just him!!
