Chronicling The Comerfords

This past weekend we had a great big sister day.  Nana took me, my sister-in-law and all the big cousins to The Fox last Sunday to see Mary Poppins.  It was such a great show and the kids did awesome!  I was a little nervous with it starting at 7, but it was not a problem.  There was some antsiness about 30 mins before intermission, but then we walked around and got cokes so the second half was just fine.

The show itself was so good!  I would highly recommend seeing it.  From the stage props to statues that come to life to Burt tap dancing upside down on the top of the stage.    While I was glad to see Mary Poppins "fly" in with her umbrella on cables, Burt was a little bit much.  Don't get me wrong, it was REALLY cool.  The tap number of Step In Time was one of my most favorite parts of the show. But we are there to see a live show.  It doesn't have to be a 3D movie.  We are going to see an amazing stage and talented performers not death-defying stunts.  I mean the top of the stage at the Fabulous Fox Theater is high people!  There is no way I would go up there.  Amelia agreed.  She said "I wouldn't go up there, that's way up high!"  That being said, Burt was a champ and did a great job.  To be able to mimic the same tap steps upside down that high up takes talent.


Since we weren't leaving until later in the afternoon and I already had Daddy committed to hangout with Annie all day, Amelia and I had a big girl afternoon. 

We went to eat at our most favorite sandwich shop, Panera Bread.  I do not guess that is just a sandwich shop, but whatever you want to call it, it is good! 

After lucnh we headed to Belks for Mama some new outfits and make up.  I let Amelia sit in the chair at the Clinique counter and put a little light blush on her.  Before I knew it the lady behind the counter was over giving her a 3 year old make up.  She put on some lip gloss and even gave her a little sample sized gloss to take in her own special bag. Our Clinique lady is named Ginger and she goes above and beyond in every way. We love her!

We had such an amazing day together.  Amelia felt so special all day!  She has been going around ever since singing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and "just a bowl full of sugar helps the medicine go down". ;)  What a great experience!


  1. She is so cute! I can't wait until Mac's old enough to go see a show with me. I saw Mary Poppins in NYC a few years ago and loved it.

  2. @sara she did great! I was worried she was too young but not so much!
