Imagination Movers

Last Saturday we took Stella to see the Imagination Movers in concert!  Our friend Lilly is a big Movers fan, and she got to see their show the last time they were in town and told us all about how much fun she had.  After her great review, we couldn't wait to experience it for ourselves.  Mrs. Kelly, Emma, Sadie, and Talia met us there for a foot-stomping good time!

To get ready for the show, we created some cheese-inspired art for Warehouse Mouse.  Here are Daddy and Stella painting our blue cheese poster...
 At the arena, we waited patiently for the show to begin.  As an added bonus, D.C. and Genevieve from Choo-Choo Soul were there, too!
 Stella is not normally allowed to have popcorn because of the choking hazard.  When her daddy gave her the nod to try some of Emma's, she dove into the box face-first.  Literally.  I missed that picture, but I got this one...
 Mover Rich came into the audience during the show.  See him behind Stella?  Stella and Sadie even got to shake Mover Dave's hand during the performance!
 Unfortunately, Stella did not get a nap in before the concert.  This led to an idea emergency, as we noticed she was getting a little drowsy waiting for the show to start.  I headed to the concession stand and came back with as much sugar as I could find.  We kept her awake for most of the concert by plying her with Starburst and cookies.  Eventually, she would rest on Daddy's lap between songs...
 When the guys left the stage, she finally succumbed...
 By the time they started rocking out for the encore, she was totally limp...
 She didn't wake up until we got to the car!
Watch this video to see how much fun Stella had and why she was so tired after the concert.  I told Damon it was like a rock concert for little kids, and he replied, "What are you talking about?  It's like a rock concert for me!"  I now think that there may be a hidden reason that we DVR the show.  Is Damon jamming with the Movers while he gets ready in the morning?  Who knows?  Let's just say that we give the Imagination Movers: In a Big Warehouse Tour 5 stars.  If it pulls into your city, you must go!  We can't wait until they come back to the Big Easy!

It looks like everyone had a great time!! We DVR it too, and I swear Mike likes it more than Lilly sometimes.
