A trip to the theater

Yesterday, Anna and I had a theater date. As in, thee-ay-ter. Since I know how much Anna loves all things fancy, I planned a surprise trip to Cacao, a tiny chocolate boutique within The Heathman Hotel. We sipped our chocolate (one kid’s hot chocolate, one chocolate macchiato) in one of the hotel’s elegant sitting areas.

Afterward, we went across the street to see Oregon Children’s Theatre’s performance of Giggle, Giggle, Quack. The show was great (all the OCT shows we’ve seen have been really high-quality), and the building is fantastic. After the show, many of the kids burned off extra energy climbing on a fantastic chair/sculpture in the theater lobby.

As usual, I couldn’t resist all the wonderful opportunities to capture shadows and reflections. And I love opportunities to be a tourist in my own town.
