What a Show...Date day with Darbee

Good evening everyone.  It's a yucky drizzly evening here in GA and quite warm.  I hope all of you have stayed safe from the terrible storms.  

This was hubby's week to be on call which means it was his weekend to work.  I do not like those weekends but at least they only come once a month.  
Darbee and I went to church this morning and then we had a special afternoon planned. It was a mommy and Darbee date day. We went to lunch at Zaxby's (Darbee's favorite when Chick-fil-A is closed).  After lunch, we headed over to the Performing Arts Center for a special show.  
The Golden Chinese Acrobats were visiting and putting on a show this afternoon.  I went on a fieldtrip when I was teaching to see them several years ago and I knew when I saw they were coming I wanted to take Darbee. I knew she would love it.  And that she did.  She was in awe the entire show.  I admit I was too.  It is amazing to see how much they can twist their bodies and the strength of those men and women.  There was no photography allowed, but I did find some pictures on the internet that are exact scenes that we saw today.  Just take a look....
This woman was amazing.  Her balance was amazing.  She twisted and turned and never dropped a thing.  When she was done, she sat the cups down and showed the audience that they were not glued or stuck together and guess what????  They had water in them!  Wow...

Darbee liked these ladies.  She liked their "nails."  

How these girls did this and never dropped a ball I will never know.  Amazing.

The strength of these two men amazed me.  I wonder how much training they do each day?

This guy had the audience on edge and ended up with two standing ovations.

He stacked the chairs so high that when he was up like this, his feet could touch the ceiling of the performing arts center.  It was so cool.  A little scary but very neat.
He was great.

One of the final acts was all of these people on this bike at one time. 
It was really neat.

We had the best time and the show was well worth it!
I am so glad we got to go. 

Thanks to all of you for your sweet comments about Mama.  She is still feeling rough and having a hard time.  Please keep those prayers coming.  

Until next time...
