Date nights have been in short supply around here lately, I'll admit. Between trips to Idaho, piles of homework, house projects, and a myriad of other things that we can never seem to put off, we often opt for pizza and Netflix at home on the weekend. But when we saw the poster for this:
We knew we couldn't miss it! We started reading the first Fablehaven book written by Brandon Mull out loud together, way back when we were engaged. It was the first book we read together. We eventually made our way through all five books of the series, and have branched out into other books as well. It's become one of our favorite family traditions. So we requested tickets, stood in line to get good seats, and had a blast listening to a short presentation by one of our favorite authors.
In any event, we're so glad we went. It's great to live in a college town (we found the same thing with Rexburg) because there are many free (or very cheap) cultural opportunities out there such as this one. We're trying hard to be better about not letting them pass us by, and enjoying all that life has to offer. Even when we feel just a little bit silly doing it!
