absolutely everybody that was sitting around us at Theatre in the Park on Friday night.
Eric had picked up a midnight extra on Thursday night and then worked his normal shift on Friday. This meant he was exhausted and went to bed early on Friday night. I really wanted to see Annie so I decided to take the boys by myself.
We got to Shawnee Mission Park around 7, bought our tickets and then waited in line until the gates opened at 7:30. The show didn’t start until 8:30 so I came prepared with snacks, a book for Kenny and some Toy Story action figures for Luke.
The musical started at 8:30 and things were still going well – Luke was a little restless and I had to keep telling him to stay on our blanket (and off our neighbor’s) but it wasn’t a big deal. Two and a half hours into the show, Luke was done. I mean, done. With 5 minutes left in the show (that lasted until 11:15), I decided that I just couldn’t control him anymore and we were outta there. Luke freaked out. So, there I was trying to carry a chair, blanket, backpack and purse and Luke won’t budge. I finally had to juggle everything and carry him out, screaming and hitting me then entire way. Yes, we were that family. I was so mad, I woke Eric up and had him deal with Luke when we got home.
All I can say is, Luke is definitely 3. And he won’t be going back to Theatre in the Park this summer.
