Seussical the Musical

Thursday night was opening night of Seussical the Musical, the play I was in this semester at the local community college. I had so much fun doing it, but I'm sad its over now. I made great friends in this show, and became even closer to other already good friends. Our cast became a family, and for the most part, everyone loved each other.
I played the Grinch, and it was seriously one of the funnest parts that I have ever done in a show. The costumers made me the craziest eyebrows I have ever seen, and I laughed every time I looked in the mirror.
What really makes me sad though, is that Seussical was my last show with Solano Youth Theatre. My parents are insisting that I "focus on growing up and getting a job" this semester. All good things must come to an end eventually, I suppose.

old photos

Recently, I found an old photo album from when my parents began dating in the early 80's. The pictures are absolutely adorable, so naturally, I had to share some of my favorates with you guys :) I love this picture because my dad never grins. If you know my dad, I highly doubt you've ever really seen his teeth. Am I right? He looks so happy here.

My mom, looking like a gorgeous model at Fisherman's Warf in SF.

The fateful day when my dad brought my mom home to meet his parents. After she left, my grandpa told my dad that she "is a keeper." High praise coming from my grandpa, who was a man of very few words.

My mom right after my dad proposed. He gave her a yellow rose corsage.
(as well as a ring, of course.)

My dad calling his buddy to tell him about his engagement. aw.
(I like the button truck behind him)
So, these are the greatest pictures I've seen in awhile. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
