Little E’s First Concert: The Imagination Movers

Well, even after the disappointment that Grandad’s long awaited trip was postponed (thanks to the icy weather we had here in Texas), Little E’s still had a fantastic Saturday – she attended her very first concert!imagination-movers-littleE

Yes, the Imagination Mover’s “In the Big Warehouse” concert was her very first.  

The Imagination Mover’s were doing two shows here in Houston, but we choose to go to the early show so we didn’t conflict with Z’s special time that evening.  

We left the house around noon, picked up some lunch from E’s favorite fast food place, and headed into the Verizon Wireless Center in downtown Houston.

We made really good time and were anticipating have some extra time beforehand, but unfortunately hit road construction just before our turn off and ended up being  late :(

But the staff at the Verizon Wireless Center were great. We picked up our tickets from Will Call and an usher took us to our seats, navigating us through all the preschoolers dancing in the isles.

Because of our late entrance, we missed most of the pre-show, but our timing had us  face to face with Geniveive  while she was performing in the isle. (whoops!)

Little E had a fantastic time watching the Imagination Movers perform, and particularly loved seeing Nina perform with the Imagination Movers. Rather than describe her reactions, I thought it would be more fun for you to see it in this video of snapshots I took during the show:

Little E was probably the oldest kid at the show, as the audience was mostly made up of preschoolers , including a few little fans in their own blue jumpsuits :) . But E thoroughly enjoyed the show.

Mover Smitty did a really good job making eye contact with the kids in the audience in front of him, which thrilled the little boy sitting  in front of us. 

Little E really wanted to meet Nina, but that opportunity didn’t come up. So instead she really studied Nina’s costumes, dancing, and singing style, and took those lessons home to pratice in her own “performances” :)

E was thrilled at that too, jumping around later exclaiming, “My first poster! I can’t believe I have my first poster!”  It is now hung prominently on the back of our front door for all to see :)

In all, it was just as fun to take her to the Imagination Movers concert as I thought I would be. My kick though was in watching my girl’s eyes shine and all her facial expressions as she took in the show.

Many thanks to Tiffney with the Imagination Movers Street Team for making this experience possible for Little E.
