This year we spent spring break at home. Although we would of much really enjoyed spending our days on the beach in the sun, building sand castles, we enjoyed some of the amazing things living in Chicagoland has to offer us. I planned a few special days for the kids and I. On Tuesday we went to see Princess and  the Pea at The Marriott Theatre.

It has been awhile since Mia and I have been to the Marriott Theatre to see a play or musical and Dylan has never been. I wasn't sure if a 5 year old boy would enjoy Princess and the Pea or not. The show was colorful, funny and only one hour. It captured both of their attention and they really enjoyed it.

We were seated in the 3rd row which was awesome but the Theatre is round, intimate and you really can't have a bad seat. It is a show that all ages will love and a perfect way to introduce live Theatre to the little ones in your life!

After the show their was a question and answer session with the actors. Mia and Dylan loved hearing about what goes on behind the scenes. The both asked questions as well. Mia had a chance to get her picture with the Princess after the show.
