This week an amateur theater group put on Robinhood in the park, so we packed our picnic dinner and camping chairs and went out to enjoy the show. It was definitely an amateur performance, but the play is written for 5-10 year olds, with players asking them questions and getting them involved, and the kids just ate it up. It was a fun time.
We weren’t sure how Milo would do, sitting down watching a play for 2 hours, but there was music and dancing and he was surprisingly attentive. Our choice of food helped, I’m sure. For dinner I packed a noodle salad for dinner (salmon from Mark and Maria in Alaska, thanks!). Milo’s packing contribution was a jar of peanutbutter. And he ate it by the spoonful, not bothering to waste time even licking it off a pretzel. He diversified to include a peanutbutter cookie at the end….Oh well, it was a treat. At least we managed to get his teeth brushed before he fell into bed.
