We enjoyed a fun day out in Philadelphia, indulging in a chocolate lunch at Max Brenner's (ah-maze-ing) and catching the holiday show at the Comcast Center.
Pennsylvania Ballet, which is celebrating its 25th season.
My friend and I attended the performance with two 4 year olds, one of which was my energetic son. I was surprised that they were both engaged for the majority of the ballet. Considering we had walked them around the city and it was dark and quiet in the theater, I was impressed that neither child fell asleep. Soren was actually sitting on the edge of his seat during the battle between the Mouse King and the toy soldiers. Though he wasn't eager to come across the Mouse King in the lobby during intermission.

The Nutcracker was a delicious holiday treat that I look forward to seeing every year. I hope to return again with my family next season.
