The Guthrie


Last night Vance and I went on a splurge date to the Guthrie Theater. It was so much fun. We went to see 1776, the musical. We don't get to do expensive things like that too often so it was very special to get dressed up, drop Isaac off at Beth's, and walk into this oh-so-chic new building. The building was actually just as amazing to me as the play itself. You'll just have to come up and visit to get a tour. My favorite part was the "endless bridge"--a massive walkway cantilevered about 150 ft. or so out of the builidng, ending in a glass outdoor balcony that overlooks the Mississippi, the Stone Arch Bridge, and some falls. Tres romantique, let me tell you :).
The play was a lot of fun, too....Vance said it was the best musical he'd ever seen...but the best part was just getting some quality time together to enjoy something different and new. And Beth kept Isaac overnight, so we got to sleep in and have a leisurely morning together. We are some lucky people to have such a wonderful lady in our lives. It's easy to leave Isaac with someone who is thrilled to keep him!
I love this city.

Sounds like wonderful fun! What a great time, in between kids, Isaac weaned, and with a great babysitter, too. I'd do as much of this as you can right now. =)
