Today Relia and I went down to Austin so we could see a play. When I first thought of this trip I thought of it as a Daddy/Daughter thing and that's what we did. We simply left the FP Gal and DF to fend for themselves.
When we got down there we met up with my dad and went out for lunch. We went to the Chinese buffet. I told her that one of the nice things about a buffet is that you can try new things without much risk. She told me that another nice thing is that you don't have to wait for the food. How smart is that?
We had some time to kill before the play so we went to the Oak Park mall. How empty is it? Let me put it this way, not only do you have to fight through tumbleweeds, the building is actually starting to crumble away. It's all very sad.
Then to the theater. We got some seats and waited for the show to start. She was as patient as she could be. Being able to study daddy's watch seemed to help.
The show was good. It involved some quiet kids and a large magic fish. She was good but an hour is a long time to sit still. Especially when the seats are so fun. Afterward we got a tour of the very tiny dressing rooms and backstage.
Then back home. She slept a bit on the way up. We got home in time for dinner and then bath and time for bed.
