On Sunday, Garden Girl and I took Nature Boy to the Big City to see Mary Poppins on Broadway. We met my sister, Bethie-Boo, her husband, Uncle Fun, and the cousins, my nephew Namesake and niece Button. Namesake and Nature Boy are both seven year old boys, and like all seven year old boys, love to climb things. First, they climbed into an "E" --
Then Button joined them --
Then everyone got into the act. (If you look at the "L" you'll see why we call him "Uncle Fun.") Then Nature Boy decided everything in the Big City was made for climbing.Because Button and Namesake are friends with the little girl who plays Jane Banks, we got to meet the actress who plays Mary Poppins and take a backstage tour following the show. The children got to see Mary Poppins' umbrella and carpet bag. They even got to see the letters that spell "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."
And although the boys loved meeting Mary Poppins ---
They loved Bethie Boo the most.Thanks, Bethie-Boo! Thanks, Uncle Fun! Thanks, Button! Thanks, Namesake! We had a wonderful time in the Big City.
