A few weeks ago Jeff and I spent the weekend in Vermont so we could watch Aidan perform in Thirteen the Musical.
In an occurrence that makes me believe in fate I met Aidan and his family at the dry cleaners twelve years ago. My Mom ran in to pick up her dry cleaning and Aidan & his older Brother Jonas (then one and three) were strapped into their car seats. I started making goofy faces at them and they laughed. Their Mom Wendy asked if I babysat and the rest is history – they are like a second family to me and Wendy married Jeff and me almost three years ago and is now an accomplished wedding officiant!
This is a photo of Aidan from 2002 – the year I started dating Jeff. They were the CUTEST kids 🙂
And this is Aidan now – the star of Thirteen the Musical. I stopped by the dress rehearsal on Friday night to take some photos and then we attended the show on Saturday.
Thirteen is a great show about what it’s like to be a teenager – funny and poignant songs and a very clever script.
An accidental kiss at the movie theater 🙂
This girl was awesome!!
And these two made a hilarious team
Casey was a close friend of Jonas and Aidan’s growing up – it was great to see them on stage together
Watching the performance on Saturday I got unexpectedly emotional and had tears rolling down my face….I couldn’t stop crying!
