Last week we took MC to see a performance of Daniel Tiger Live! in Charlotte. It was a quick 24 hour trip, but we packed a lot of fun into a short trip!
We stayed in a hotel uptown that was walking distance to the theater. We arrived in the early afternoon before the show that evening, so once we checked in to the hotel we headed over to grab some pizza at The Mellow Mushroom down the block.
There was a cute little urban park right across the street that had some gorgeous landscaping and a fun water feature.
We all rested for a few minutes before it was time to get dressed and head over for the show. This was MC's first stay at a hotel, and I think she could get used to hotel life!
She LOVED the show and was totally engaged in it the whole time. I was really impressed with her attention span; it was a fairly long show - about an hour and fifteen minutes total, with a 15 minute intermission. They sang a lot of songs that we recognized from the TV show and there were also several original songs in this performance.
Our seats were really close and at one point during the show, Katerina Kittycat was standing at the edge of the stage directly in front of us. MC waved to her and she waved right back; MC was thrilled!
We had the opportunity to do a quick meet and greet with Daniel after the show. It was late by this point, and although earlier she had said she wanted to give Daniel a hug and a high five, she opted instead to stay in BD's arms and check out Daniel from a safe distance.
The next morning we got up and headed to Discovery Place Kids in Huntersville. It was packed with kids on school field trips, but we still had a great time, and there was plenty for MC to do.
She raced cars on the derby track and played on the water table...
She drove trains and the fire truck...
And played with floam in the art center...
After we'd played out the museum, we stopped for a quick bite for a late lunch and then hit the road headed home for Chapel Hill.
