We had an amazing weekend that started with an exhibit of amazing costumes! These were my favorites.

Angelica Houston's gown in Ever After 
Jack Sparrow's costume from Pirates #1

Keira Knightly's from The Dutchess 

Kate Winslet's from Sense and Sensibility

Emmy Rossum's from the Masquerade in Phantom of the Opera

The gorgeous red gown from Land of the Blind!
Next, we were off to the BYU Harris Fine Arts Center

The kids especially loved the interactive pieces like walking this floor maze and ringing a huge selection of very loud hand bells. 
There, we got to enjoy our first opera experience, a special family presentation of

The kids LOVED it (shocking because they were dragging their feet saying how opera was boring.)

The amazing performers even came out for a meet and greet afterwards.

Our youngest was pouting because we tried to make him take a picture with "yucky girls." Apparently, we love to torture him... 
We topped off our fun weekend with a trip to the comic book store (Dragons Keep in Provo),
where we met Captain America!
