W.........onderful "Hay Fever"!

Although our actual summer vacation begins next week, we've been luck enough to take several "short" vacations as well. Last week it was our annual trek to beautiful Spring Green, Wisconsin, to visit The American Players Theatre where classical and semi-classical productions are staged all summer long. On a perfect summer night we sat with my daughter and son-in-law under the stars to see a delightful version of Noel Coward's "Hay Fever".

The photos are of this theatre in the woods, and a close up of one scene from the play that features nine characters: four zany members of the Bliss family, four guests they invite separately without telling anyone else, and one unflappable housekeeper. The merriment that ensues in their English country house in the first half of the 20th century is contagious.

What a perfect mini-vacation. Who knew that hay fever could be so much fun?

Mini vacations are great...you can do more of them and spread them out throughout the summer :) We love 'em!

That's sounds great! I'd love to go see theatre like that sometime. I'll have to check into this.

Now that we have two kids under the age of 3 we do the mini vacation thing. I actually like it quite a bit. I look forward to those snipets of time away from the house.
