Johnny's Birthday Painted Blue

We saw The Blue Man Group for Johnny's birthday. It was, I can honestly say, one of the coolest, craziest and most fun performances I've EVER seen.

Thinking outside of the box could be the biggest understatement of all time. They think of things I never would. Their specialty is music and loud, loud, loud percussion. They wind so much humor in it (thankfully very clean) that it makes for an amazing time. You are either laughing hysterically, screaming (when told to), clapping, jumping, waving hands--- it was just a BLAST. I guess their shows have different "names" around the country and world because this one was titled "Tubes". A lot of their props were tubes and it was fascinating! And what's the coolest thing, I think, is that they are completely expressionless during the show. They show no emotion and dont talk nor smile nor laugh. They just look at each other and make motions and are able to communicate with each other perfectly. I was surprised at how much the audience knew exactly what they were "saying" with their motions.

Moral of the story: See a Blue Man Group if you have a chance--
You certainly wont regret it!!
Because they prohibit photos during the show, here are some pictures I stole from Google of last night's performance:

And here are photos we took after the show:

Us and two of the Blue Men!

I don't think I'll be seeing those creepy characters on purpose anytime soon. :) But I would jump at the chance to see ya'll again! I can't believe how fast we're all growing up. Just yesterday I was 12 and climbing trees with Stevie. Now I'm 16 and getting my liscense this summer. Isn't that scary? Ah, those were the days...:) Does he still make up silly nicknames for everyone? :)

Shalom Ya'll!
