After a ten day break, we all met again in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  We were only there for the weekend and we had 5 shows so I didn't get to do much sightseeing.  The Popejoy theatre was on the campus of the University of New Mexico.  Some of the cast saw a coyote near our hotel! We ate at an authentic Mexican restaurant and we also found an amazing restaurant called The Standard.  It was featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives". I LOVED the milkshakes!  Next up....Dallas, Texas!  Stay tuned!

We recently had a 10 day break from the tour.  I fit as much as I could in the time off!  My dad and me flew to Colorado to visit friends there and then went hiking/backpacking in Wyoming.  I got to see Old Faithful and go horseback riding which was really neat. When I got back home, I spent some time with friends and family that I haven't seen in a while.  I was so busy that I now need a vacation from my vacation!  No time to rest's time to meet up with my Beauty and the Beast family in Albuquerque, New Mexico!

We couldn't have fit more in a week if we tried!  Omaha had a lot of great things to do. In one week, we managed to go to the zoo, play kickball, have a going away party for Corey (who is going to the Blue Man Group Tour!), play paintball, go to an arts festival, and perform 8 shows at the lovely Orpheum theatre. Before the shows and during intermissions, the theatre sold some pretty cool Beauty and the Beast themed snacks!  I didn't get to try the Chocolate CHIP cookies, but they sure looked great.
Paintball was my favorite thing we did in Omaha.  It was my first time playing. It hurt a lot when I got hit, but it was so much fun!  I also really enjoyed the Henry Doorly Zoo.  It was HUGE and had so many awesome animals. The coolest animals were the okapis and the free-roaming peacocks.  I also really liked the butterfly house which had butterflies everywhere!
Omaha was great, but by the end of the weekend, all I could think about was our upcoming 10 day tour break!  My dad and I are going to Colorado, I get to see friends and family at home, and of course give my dog a big hug!  See you after our vacation..... the next tour city is Albuquerque, New Mexico!
