Rodgers & Hammerstein Musical Review

For those of you who didn't know me in high school, you probably didn't realize how much I love to be on stage. I love acting and singing and dancing. It's not that I'm the greatest at any of these, but I love the creative outlet and getting to be someone different...even if only for an hour. Throughout a week in March and the month of April twenty eight individuals from Logandale/Overton got together and rehearsed songs from the Sound of Music and Oklahoma. It was extremely time consuming, but well worth it for the friendships made and the fun in getting back on stage once again. On April 29th we performed our one and only performance to a crowd of a couple hundred. I haven't figured out how to download the video to my computer. But when I do, I'll try and post some video as well.

Here's the entire cast. I'm in the last row in the center. I was in the ensemble for Oklahoma.

And here I am as a nun in the Sound of Music. For those of you who are familiar with the play or movie, I was Sister Berthe (the mean one).

Trevor's First Birthday

On April 13th we helped Trevor celebrate his first birthday. Greg and Jackie had family over for a backyard BBQ and then watched as Trevor had fun with his first birthday cake.

Even with cake in his eye, he's still a cutie!

The Clark County Fair

On April 12 Rhett and I spent the afternoon at the Clark County Fair and Rodeo. We're fortunate to have the fair out in Logandale, so it makes it easy just to pop over for a few hours. We watched pig racing (and swimming), looked at all the animals, saw a hypnotist perform, and that night we went to the rodeo.

Isn't he so cute? Rhett does NOT do this sort of thing. He's very self-conscious about his height and he's always thinking that people are making fun of him. But after about an hour of coaxing, I finally got him on the mechanical bull. I don't know how long he was on there, but long enough for me to get a few good pictures.

I just thought this was the cutest. We happened to arrive at the pig pen when it was feeding time.
