Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Last night Marlee Anne and I had one of the most amazing treats we have had in a very long time. I have been so excited about this day getting here.

Aunt Kim took us to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Fox. She, Grace, Lindy, Tracey and Ann picked us up around 5 and we all headed out.

We had supper at the Spaghetti Factory. I could have been embarrassed if I had been with someone else but they all understood it. I was eating like I wasn't going to get back out for another year or so. The food was delicious. Service wasn't up to their standards but after one comment from Aunt Kim and everything was wonderful!!! I was at the head of the table with no child to feed on either side. Marlee Anne was stuck up under Aunt Kim the whole night so I just breathed. WOW!!! I didn't know my mind, body, heart and soul needed that so much! I enjoyed my one on one time with Grace so much too!

One of my most favorite things of the night besides spending time with all of them was watching Lindy. She had never been out to Atlanta like that. She was just bubbling with excitement. Everything was just amazing to her. It really touched my heart. As we headed to the Fox she was taking it all in. I was so very excited and had been there many times before so I can imagine how she was feeling.

When we walked into the Fox it literally took her breath and outloud you heard her. It was really precious. We got to our seats which were perfect and when she and Marlee Anne looked up they both went WOW!

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was amazing. It was so funny because to my left was Kim, Marlee Anne & Lindy. They were all oohing and aahing and sitting on the edge of their seats. They were so fun to watch. To my right was Grace, Tracey & Ann. They all just sat there, smiles every now & then but definitely not on the edge of their seats. It was really very funny!

When Chitty Chitty Bang Bang took flight it was absolutely amazing! I cried when the children came out and were singing. They were just so very talented. Everyone was great but I loved seeing the children that the child catcher had gotten.

Afterwards we took a thousand pictures in front of the Fox just to get the right picture. We had so much fun watching all the prom dates there and at the Spaghetti Factory.

We went to Krispy Kreme before going home. Even that was very exciting for Lindy too. Well all of us actually. We just had an incredible night. I asked Lindy if she ate her lemon donut and she said she did. She said this has been the most amazing night. LOVE it!!!

The ride home was filled with laughter all the way. Well at least from the front two rows of seats. Grace and Lindy took naps on the way home.

Thanks ya'll for a very incredible night!

My son played Jeremy Potts last night. It is so nice to see that the show was such a positive experience for you and your family. That is why they do it. I enjoyed reading your post. (it appeared in a daily Google search for "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang).

I could not go without saying how very incredible Zachary was as Jeremy. OH MY!!! I am so glad to know that word got to you about what a wonderful experience we had. It will be a memory that we will cherish forever. Thank you!!!
