Snoopy and Dock Dogs

It's been a bit hectic- we've had 2 friends with very sick (ie, in the hospital) children, so I saw my fair share of the Med Center this week. So, when I wasn't holding Megan, praying for our friends, or thanking all the powers that be that Meg is well and wonderful, I managed to take a few shots of my sister-in-law's new production of "Snoopy" which is playing at The Company Onstage, and the Dock Dogs competition at Discovery Green.

First, Charlie Brown:

Kathryn is Peppermint Patty, who carries a torch for Charlie Brown.


Snoopy and Woodstock:

Megan has seen it almost 3 times now (she missed part of one rehearsal), and was singing along with the cast from the audience when she saw it this weekend.
Yes, she has her feet on the stage.

A little food pr0n:
Waffles and Wings, The Breakfast Klub.
I have never been so stuffed and miserable, and yet so totally happy after brunch.

Dock Dogs- now, this was fun. Basically it's a dog (with a serious affinity for water) with an owner that chucks a toy into this GIANT pool from a platform that resembles a dock (elevated above the water a few feet) and they judge the performance by the distance of the dog's jump into the water. Megan was SO up for this.

Of course, there were a few dogs that were hesitant to jump:

But for the most part, we saw some great doggie athletes.



And of course, the day couldn't have been complete with a little humiliation of my favorite Nikon shooter:

Good times. GOOD times.
