When I saw this production of Pinkalicious was playing at the Manhattan Movement and Arts center over by the Lincoln center, I knew I had to take my kids. They are all big Pinkalicious fans. (And Purplelicious, and Goldilocious, and Silverlicious). They play was one hour, and it was adorable. All 3 kids were enthralled. The music was cute and the storyline was simple and followed the book quite well.
I got up that morning and went for a run while Rusty took the kiddos to help clean the church. I didn’t get up early enough, and was disappointed that I didn’t get to run a few more miles. I got all showered and ready, then put on my “pretty” (non-walking) shoes b/c the theater was only a couple blocks from the subway. I got down in the subway station only to hear, “There are extensive delays of the 1,2,3 trains. Please seek alternate transportation.” Ahhhh! I was at the station on Broadway and 86th, so I ran down to Central Park West and caught the subway there. The B train wasn’t quite as close to my destination, so then I had to run and run some more to make it to the theater on time. Needless to say, I was glad I hadn’t run those few extra miles in the morning—I more than made up for it running to Pinkalicious!
We then took a little walk over to Sheep’s meadow for the Ward Picnic. It was fun to be able to meet and hang out with more members in our ward. Again, I just can’t say enough good things about how nice and welcoming everyone has been to us. I even found a running partner! Yay!
