Date night



Last night, Nate and I went on a date to Riverdance in SLC. It was such a fun night, just being out together, without the kiddo. MacKay was nice enough to come over and hang out at our house while the Asher dude slept. Thanks Mackay, you're AWESOME!

I haven't been to a Riverdance show since I started doing some Irish dance myself, so it was kind of fun to watch with a whole new outlook. It was cool to think that I could do most of those steps... just not quite so fast, and I definitely wouldn't look near as good. The whole show was great! It's nice for us because there was the band for Nate and the dancing for me, so we both had parts to enjoy. The lead female dancer was this tiny little thing, very cute and of course, very good. The whole show was pretty much the same as before, but still very entertaining. I think my favorite dance was the one with the Russian Dervish dancers, you know with the three couples that do all the fun lifts and turns... love that one, and then the one with the tappers and the Irish guy dancers, such awesome footwork!

We didn't want to spend a ton on the tickets, so we opted for the nosebleed section... seriously the very last row in the center section, right in front of the spotlights. The seats were actually pretty good, except for the fact that I was dying of heat by the end of the show, I thought I was going to pass out. The freezing cold weather felt so nice afterwards!

I think the show is playing through the end of the week, so you should definitely see if they still have tickets in you live in the area.

Hey Morga! We went to see it in December in Sacramento. Ben like it, but not as much as I did! It's fun that you guys got to go on a folkdance-esque kind of date.
