A couple weekends ago we loaded up and went to St. Cloud to visit family and to see the play "Pilgrim" -- a play based on the book "Pilgrims Progress". We've read the book "Dangerous Journey" many times to our kids and it's created great conversation each time. It's a kids version of "Pilgrims Progress". Before going to the play, we spend the week prior reading the book again. It's a pretty long book and normally we take a couple weeks to read through it. This time, Josiah and Alayna were soooo into to (and if I'm honest, so was their mom) that we read it in 3 days. Yep, it was an hour or so of reading the book each night! We read it all though and the kids were excited to go see the play.

It was a lot of fun and though the play was nearly 3 hours long...they sat through it and enjoyed it! We drove back home that Saturday and on Sunday we had tickets to see "Cinderella" at the high school where Dan works. Unfortunately this negligent parent didn't take any pictures of that fun. Trust me though, it was a pretty good time and Alayna enjoyed going to a play as a family that was really just for her! :)
