International Children's Theater Festival and ANTS

Playhouse Square hosted the International Children's Theater Festival on Mothere's Day where they had plenty of activities for families.  It was our second sketch outing for the spring, and luckily, both days we'd scored beautiful weather, just a slight chill in the breeze. 

The Ants performed the top of the hour, moving breadcrumbs.  They little kids had to figure out how to help the Ants move the crumbs and how to set them up.  The Ants never spoke, and just made clicking noises.  One of the other sketchers noticed that the people in the costumes must have really studied ants, because they moved their heads in a manner that made them very convincing. 

It was good to get out with the sketchers for a good sunny day and catch some sun.  It was the first time we actually needed sunscreen.  And, people laugh, but my car always has a snow shovel and sunscreen in it.  Because, well, you never know!
