Fun on the Run

Saturday I was able to go see Les Miserables with 30 of my closest friends :). Truthfully, there were almost 30 people from Peoria that went, but not all of us travelled together. We had a 3 car caravan. It was a no-stress day, thanks to Kari's excellent planning. It is what she does for a living, but more often than not she still amazes me. She had a packet for each vehicle that included:
directions to the theater
what exit we would stop at for lunch (along with the fast food places available and what order they were in going down the street)
a synopsis of the play so those who had not seen it could become familiar with it
the menu for dinner so that people could decide ahead of time what they might want (to eliminate some of the wait time)

And everyone was operating on time, which made the day even less stressful!

I really enjoyed the show. We had really good seats (second row balcony). I think I prefer a musical that also has some talking in it. Les Mis was strictly music. But, that being said, I still really enjoyed this show.

After the show we walked several blocks to Giordano's for deep dish pizza. Than we walked back to our cars and headed back to Peoria. An eventful day, but a great break from the normal weekend routine!
