Music Monday: London's Birthday Party with Three BFFs and Cirque Eloize at NJPAC

London described it as “the best birthday party ever.” Maddie just loved having our own private balcony for ten, looking out over the crowd. Rex said, “Weird… but wonderful.” One of the other moms kept looking for Eloise from the Plaza Hotel… she didn’t find that naughty little six-year-old, but enjoyed many other surprises. I loved the trampolines, trapeze and contortionist but worried that London’s sister Maddie would be twisting herself into a pretzel during the after-party at home.

For those of you who are out of the loop, we’re talking about London’s 8th birthday party last weekend. Rex, Maddie, London and I were joined by three of London’s BFFs (best friends forever) and their moms for the Saturday matinee performance of Nebbia by Cirque Eloize at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC).

I quickly realized that I would have trouble describing it, so I was thrilled to find the following short video on YouTube:

It sounds like all had a wonderful time...I do wonder if Eloise's freind Lyle Lyle the crocodile came to Newark for the show...after all he still resides nearby in the house on East 88th Street.

The PAC is beautiful and a great place to expose our kids to live performing arts. I do hope you took plenty of pictures to share with us. Did you get the birthday cake from Cocoluxe?

How are things going on the new job?

wow, the list of folks participating in music monday (and linking to your blog) has exploded...

my kids love the whole cirque-thing but honestly they remind me of weird clowns from some Fellini-film--just something else my kids love that i don't get! ;)

cheers!

The Cirque is the best in Las Vegas. We had great seats when we went a couple of years ago. If not for the time change and being incredibly tired, it would have been a great night.
