For a long time, he was in shows at the Hale or the Scera, both located in Orem. Then he started taking his show on the road. He started school at SUU in Cedar City, but he was living in Montana for the summer, and was in some shows at a playhouse there. Naturally we drove to Montana to see his performances in August. Now that he's back in school at SUU, we drove down to Cedar City to see him in A Midsummer Night's Dream this past weekend. (He played Snug, and his lion costume was epic.)
It wasn't a very long trip. We drove down Saturday afternoon, went out to dinner with Justin and my parents, followed by the play, and then drove home Sunday morning.
It's unfortunate that I didn't get any pictures of Justin, since we were down there to see him. They don't allow photography during the play, and I suppose we just didn't think about taking pictures during dinner. (It's really unfortunate that I don't have a picture of him as a lion. Perhaps if enough people comment that they would like to see one, we can convince him to provide.)
But, I did get some precious pictures of the rest of us. We had to drop Justin off early so that he could go get in costume before the play. That meant that we had a good hour to kill on SUU campus. Naturally, we got some truly precious pictures.
|It may be a bridge to nowhere, but we still make it look precious.|
|There was a statue of Shakespeare sitting on a bunch. How could I not cuddle him and look at him longingly?|
|My Mom didn't want to be outdone, so she had to cuddle as well. What she doesn't know is that she was still outdone, because she forgot to look at him longingly.|
|SUU even has a little waterfall in the middle of campus. (But it doesn't always have my parents at the top of the waterfall. This was a special and rare sighting.)|
