So tonight Mom, Dad and I went to see Einstein and the Polar Bear at the Krannert Center for Performing Arts. The play was incredible, smart, well acted. I loved the smallness of the theater. I felt like I was on stage. Before the play we ate at The Bread Company. I don't think my mom liked it very much; the bread was too hard for her to eat. I ate poached peppercorn tilapia which was magnificent. Our waitress was someone M played clarinet with in the band. It was cool but busy and I was disappointed I didn't get to have any dessert fondue. Maybe we'll go again soon just for that.

The parents leave in the morning. I won't see them off because they're leaving at 7 a.m. And as much as I love them I'm not getting up that early. I think the trip was successful.
