This year’s annual tradition of going to Disney on Ice happened to fall on opening night. Brendan as surprised with front row seats. It was a great show and Brendan even got to be a part of it just before it began! (again!)
Most important – his outfit. The moms who sat next to us loved his ears and their daughters enjoyed watching Brendan sing and dance along too!
15 years ago today the musical Wicked opened on Broadway.
We have seen the show a few times but this picture is from the first time- in London, 2014. Brendan had just turned 7.
During the whole trip, in every train station and any time he saw the poster, he insisted we had to see the show. On our last day, we went. Our seats were the first row of the balcony.
I’ll never forget watching him sing all the songs he watched on YouTube videos over and over. And I’ll never forget him telling us (once again) that someday he wanted to be one of the people on the stage telling the stories.
The second picture is of the t shirt he got after the show. He just recently retired it (4 years later!). For a while it was in almost every picture we took, he wore it as much as he could. He said he loved it because it reminded him of how he felt watching the show.
It’s that time of year – the Condon’s annual Halloween Party. Both of our kids are officially “too old” this year (it’s for kindergarten- grade 5).
Bren volunteered to help but didn’t want to wear his Trick or Treat costume. So he put this together and sent me this picture before he left. He’s “a Snapchat filter.”
(Actual Halloween costume is also very Brendan) 🎃
