Last night my family of five was lucky enough to see the How To Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular at the Verizon Center. This show was unlike any other we've seen...part movie, part theater, and amusement park ride all rolled into one. As promised, the masterminds behind "Walking With Dinosaurs", Global Creatures, magically brought the enormous, fire-breathing dragons of Dreamworks' How To Train Your Dragon to life, but the producers didn't stop there. Throughout this epic experience the audience was immersed into a soaring landscapes, fiery caves, and the medieval world of the Vikings with huge floor to ceiling projection screens that simulated the feeling of travelling along with the characters whether they were scaling a rock wall, running over glaciers, or flying through a fjord. Perched up high in our seats if felt more as if we were part of a theme park ride than Verizon Center spectators!
If you have little ones, this kind of experience can't wait. There is just something truly special about the look on their faces when they see that dragons actually are REAL. "Wow!" is probably the last word you'll hear from them as they become totally immersed and transfixed by the wonder of it all.
I was lucky enough to meet Sarah earlier this year and discover that she is not only managing motherhood, home, new business, and a blog but also an entire homestead, garden, and herd of goats! Did I also mention that she's pregnant and expecting her second child next month? I have no idea how she and her husband manage it all, but I am fascinated by the concept of homesteading and am simply in love with the goat milk products that she and her family of goats make at Amalthea Ridge. (My favorite: the Ginger Lime Body Souffle...so delicious smelling and light that I wish I could eat it!) To learn more about raising kids on a homestead read my interview with Sarah here and visit her website at www.amalthearidge.com.
