This is a pic of the girls standing in front of our house before the play. Okay - so maybe it's not our house. Maybe it's the house/mansion we parked in front of. I just thought it was pretty ;-)
We were early so I took a few pics of the girls in front of the Spotlight before the play started...
It pays to get there early! Front row seats - woo hoo!
After the play was over, all of the cast members went out in the lobby area to shake hands with everyone as they left and to thank everyone for coming. My girls also had a lot of fun meeting all of the cast and getting their autographs...
Molly's sister, Megan, played "Wendy" and her dad, Tom, played "Smee", Captain Hook's sidekick. Her brother, Brandon (not pictured here), was one of the pirates - it was a family affair!
And here's the girls with Peter Pan. She did an awesome job and so did Captain Hook - and, they are even married in real life! Who knew they really could get along?!

After touring the Station, we went in the room where they book inmates. Officer Long said when an inmate first comes into the jail, they are handcuffed to this bench. All the kids took turns getting handcuffed...
The movie was GREAT and had AMAZING videography of animals and nature - although there were a few scenes that were a little difficult to watch (i.e., animals becoming prey, a polar bear died due to starvation and exhaustion, etc.); however, there were no bloody or gory scenes and my girls still loved it.
We had a fun Earth Day ;-)
