The Taming of the Shrew & toy stores

We're off to my sister's wedding soon and we needed a weekend to ourselves, the sun was shining and it was so so nice.

We headed downtown and walked along the piers with lattes and bagels, which is a great way to start off your morning!

And we headed into a really cool toy store downtown to buy some baby gifts for friends :) Plus we came out with a few toys for ourselves. Joshua was very into the little pick up scoop you could sit on haha

But our evening was what was really spectacular. We went to Magnuson Park to watch Shakespeare in the Park, they were doing The Taming of the Shrew (10 things I Hate about You is based off of it, and it's my favorite movie)

We took a picnic of sushi, blueberries, blackberries, cherry sodas, and licorice

It was the BEST play I've ever seen performed! It was so magnificent. It was hilarious, like laugh out loud the whole time kind of funny. The players were great and the story was so fun and full of personality. The sun set as we were watching it and we felt totally transported. I think the whole car ride home the most we could say was "wow that was awesome" on repeat.

We ended the night with a bottle of wine and our new toy :) We bought a Settlers of the Catan made for 2 people! It is so stinkin fun! Hubs beat me both times but I will get my vengance. And yes are aware that we are becoming nerdier as we age, not cooler :)

  1. I took a Shakespeare class at UC as part of my literature requirement. We read Taming of the Shrew! It was one of my favorites. I didn't really like Shakespeare in high school, but I really liked the plays we had to read for the class.
