Gabba Live!!

Yesterday Ingrid and I drove to Detroit to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live.  It was insane.  I've never gone to a kid's show like that before, and frankly, I might not go again for a long time! 

We were lucky enough to get free tickets, and actually being in the way back had its privileges.  Ingrid could stand in her seat and dance without annoying anyone behind her, and we could make a quick getaway at the end.

It was at the Fox Theater right downtown Detroit, which is an amazing old theater with tons of cool lights and statues and velvet covered seats.  The seats we had actually weren't bad, there was a huge screen behind the characters so it was easy to see.  And if Ingrid could stand up in her seat she could see everything. 

They played all the old favorite songs and the characters danced.  Ingrid was so excited!!  She kept stuffing her fingers in her mouth and chewing on them she was so hyped!  She sang along and had a great time.  We went to the merch table but found most things were pretty expensive.  I am such a cheapskate...Luckily they had cute little tote bags.  She can't outgrow it and we will use it for our library trips every week, a perfect idea!

We did get to see Biz markie, but it was frankly a little boring. He sat like Santa and had kids sit on his lap to do a beat, it went on FOREVER.

And no, no tshirt b/c hello, Ingrid stains everything and a tote bag will be much more useful in our house!
