weird science

Action-packed family field trip yesterday via the new green line train to St. Paul.

Yesterday was Zola’s first ever class field trip. It was my first black light performance complete with hyper-color puppets, and a gaggle of giddy preschoolers but no Pink Floyd to speak of…

Thanks to Imagination Theatre for Valentine’s Day Surprise: a play that dazzled us with a levitating circus in a sea of black and taught us that the key to happiness is to open your heart to the love and kindness within you.
