There were a lot of families in attendance! Sweet Girl and Love Bug were engaged the entire time. The show was at least 45 minutes long, but it was action-packed and there were a variety of puppets. Mr. Brown told the story of Mother Goose and the different characters that were to perform in a circus. It was hard to take pictures with my camera because the puppets moved around so much, but I did get a few shots of some of our favorite parts.
Sweet Girl really liked "Kelly" the duck. I believe she was the niece of Mother Goose. Love Bug liked the cow who jumped over the fence. I liked the lion who danced with Mr. Brown when he wore his "dancing shoes." The shoes had velcro on them and the lion "stood" on Mr. Brown's feet. This enabled the lion puppet to be very animated. We all liked the tight-rope walking bear. Mr. Brown not only had a variety of puppets, but several fun props, too. He single-handedly performed, ran the music and set the stage for the different acts.
Love Bug, who usually ends up on my lap during story time, was so intrigued, that she didn't move from her spot on the floor. She even made her little stuffed Bob the Tomato toy dance. Sweet Girl had brought Spotted Elephant because she had "never seen a puppet show before" and she was dancing, too. I loved watching the expressions on the girls faces as they watched the show. Mr. Brown even got me laughing a couple of times!
We all had a fun time and was thankful that we got to see the show. Going to these types of shows seems like all fun, but the girls are learning how to behave during a show, how to be respectful of those around them and how to thank the performer(s) at the end of the show (if possible).
It was a nice change of pace and fun to get to hang out with our "story time friends" outside of that environment.
Another fun day with my girls!
