Two weekends ago my sister came into town. She came without her kids, without her husband. She came by airplane. She came for the queen bed all to herself with no kids climbing in at 2am. She came for the long leisurely dinner out with two beers. Most importantly, she came for the Dixie Chicks! They did a Canadian tour and played in Hamilton Ontario, which is about 2 hours away. We made a day of it Saturday and went up to Niagara-on-the-Lake, a cute artsy town on Lake Ontario.
The concert itself was great! They played their hits chronologically and put on a very good show. Those three women are magical together, much better than apart. The stadium was absolutely packed. For a group that hasn't put out music since 2006, they still have quite the fan base.
Kevin and I also went to the musical War Horse. I thought it was tragically sad throughout. It was funny how I stopped seeing the man standing next to the puppet (directing the head) after a little bit and only saw the horse.
