Pillow and painting

if you are ever in The Berkshires…a free show at Jacob’s Pillow’s inside/out stage is a must!!

all summer they have free shows…every night a different type of dance…..the stage is breath taking and the dance is amazing!

you are not aloud to take pictures during the performance, so we took a few during the warm up.

some dances we like…some we don’t.

but it doesn’t matter….we enjoy the night.

First of all...I can't believe you let your kids paint in their NICE clothes! (I know...sorry! That's what I noticed in your pics!)

And I too feel that knot in my stomach. Not ready for school to start...and summer to end.

Ahhhh...shoe shopping...done that!
Love the painting ...and I love the porch!
And the dance theatre place looks amazing. Anything would seem inspirational there!
Have a great week.

OH! I wish they had those shows here! My ballerinas would be in heaven!

And, same here. I am NOT looking forward to going back to school. No siree, Bob.

We started school this week. :( I love their paintings! So pretty! They are so adorable, as always. That place looks so breathtaking. It sounds like you have had a great summer.
