>Thursday in ogden utah- music, art and foodies

21 Apr

I had so much fun last night on my family adventure! I won tickets to see Rhythmic Circus at Peery’s Egyptian Theater from the amazing Visit Ogden group. My daughter loved dancing around to the music and even made a little friend. I have never seen tap dancing before and i couldn’t stop grinning, it is definitely something everyone must watch at least once. Its hard to capture the energy of tap dancing on film, live is a totally different experience and these guys and gal are amazing at what they do. I loved the jazzy/funky band they played with the the hilarious little introductions. Definitely check out Rhythmic circus! Unfortunately we had to leave a bit early though to avoid the inevitable meltdown. Hunter was getting a bit cranky and needed a change of pace. We happened to have some leftover tokens from our Staycation trip so we headed over to Fat Cats for some arcade games. Hunter immediately ran over to the spider man, her new favorite cartoon, and began squealing her sonic boom squeal of joy. After spending all out tokens on skee ball and the merry go round we let her run around pretending to play games before cashing in our tickets for spiders and monster fingers. Overall family date night success! For more photos check out Indie Ogden’s facebook page!

So I am pretty excited about today’s events. There is quite a bit happening and they are all really amazing. If you’ve been procrastinating trying out some of Ogden’s great events then tonight would be the night to finally do it. Don’t be shy, Ogden is an incredibly friendly town! When i first moved here (thanks to universal cycles) so many people came and said hi and introduced me to others and made me feel welcome.
