Last night we went to a lovely little church’s dinner theater production. Myself and S. go ever year and it is always a blast. This year we brought the children with. The Theme is always a bit different, but this year they totally revamped the concept. Instead of entering the “diner” we “boarded the cruise ship”. It was a “Love Cruise”. Mysteriously, the entire entertainment scheduled for our cruise all came down with food poison. It was up to the crew and staff to find alternate entertainment for the passengers. Luckily, they had some Nun’s that were up for the job. The Captain, was not fond of the entertainment director and pretty set on getting him fired if things did not run smoothly on this voyage. Boy, was he is dire straights. Luckily, he had his faithful crew members that were encouraging and helpful. The entire evening was filled with fun and jokes. We even won a couple games we played. I was very fortunate to have won a pet rock, so we didn’t miss our pets as much whilst we were on our cruise. How nice of them!! Then we won a game of Jeopardy. MMmmmm….Chocolate. The dinner was buffet style with fixings for a great picnic. Salads, Hot dogs, Hamburgers, Chips and more. They had some really nice touches to the evening. The boats entertainment was themed around the Bicentennial and found a wonderful way to pay tribute to those in attendance that were veterans. It was very heartwarming and ended with lots of love and caring being shown. A good tear jerker.
My parents were cooking in the kitchen for this event and afterward we caught up with them, then headed for home. It was a late evening for us, but always worth it. I am thankful that my parents think of my family every year and get us tickets to this event. It isn’t a “payfor” event. It is donations of food stuffs for the food bank or jst simply a donation as you walk out the door. It is a really family friendly event that I appreciate yearly.
Enjoy the pictures!!
