Stations of the Cross

Stations of the Cross is a Catholic tradition that takes place in the weeks before Easter. There are several stations set up depicting different scenes from Christ's Passion Week. I am told that different churches celebrate it in different ways. Tonight we are attending with some friends. It will be done inside with the congregants seated as the priest moves through the stations explaining each depiction. I have heard that some churches do other kinds of presentations of the Stations of the Cross including dramatic and/or outdoor

a little taste of them all

When we travel together, I love to try a little bit of many different items. Our trip to Boston was no different. I love each of us ordering different items and sharing them all. We would order a few different items to share for dinner as well as dessert. It makes it fun and that way we get to taste several different items.

my home town scavenger hunt

If you are looking for some cheap fun close to home, why not try a hometown scavenger hunt? You can come up with ideas to search for throughout your town. List them out, load up the car and head out to find them. This can be done with a range of ages and can be fun for all. Bringing along a camera to record your finds adds to the fun!

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

This show is great fun! It follows closely to the video script. There are lots of laughing, singing and dancing. The actors are all very talented, with lots of experience. The flying car is grand! I love how the background was all black with "stars" to aid in the illusion of flying. We enjoyed the show and the audience really got into it. I must say I did not enjoy the potty humor of the spies, even if they were from Vulgaria. I enjoyed the performance of Professor Potts, Grandpa, all the children and even the child catcher! Be sure and catch this Broadway Across America show if it comes to your area!
