Avery's friend, Hunter invited us to see the Charlotte Ballet perform "Little Mermaid" last Sunday. I decided to tell Avery we were going to have a surprise girls only afternoon. I will never be able to beat the Daddy-Daughter trip to Carowinds, but I figured lunch uptown and the ballet would still be fun :) The day before, I asked if she wanted to know the surprise and she said no, but she did know that she was going to wear a dress so I guess that was good enough.
Hunter also invited her friend Addie who is also a big mermaid fan. Here they are posing in front of a big, shinny statue before we head inside.
Here are the signs for the main characters, aka "Ariel" and "Prince Eric"
The show was great for kids. Two forty minute sessions with an intermission in the middle. It was Avery's first ballet so she had to wrap her mind around no singing and no talking and that Flounder was missing because this was not exactly the Disney version. But she clapped at the end of every scene and was worried the show was over every time it went dark for scene change. I think she had a great time.
Mommy-Daughter Date success!
