Singin' in the Rain and Amorino!

"I'm singin' in the rain, just singin' in the rain,
what a glorious feelin,
I'm happy again!"
Recognize this tune???
The musical, "Singin' in the Rain," opened up in London on Saturday, February 4th at the Palace Theater. We bought tickets online for it awhile ago and were excited to watch it during its first week of shows! Even though we had really high up seats, we only paid 15 pounds for them, and we still had a good time. There were a few parts that we couldn't see, like when they were at the very front of the stage.....but other than that, it was great. My favorites parts of the show were the dancing, and the real water coming down from the top of the stage. They turned on water so it looked like it was actually raining and it came down on the performers. They danced in it and sang and it was amazing. The best part of the whole show was the ending dance number where the whole cast did a dance together, with their umbrellas, in the rain. The umbrellas were a matching shiny silver color on top, and then each one was a different bright hot color on the bottom. This made the choreography even more exciting, because of all the different colored umbrella bottoms that we could see as they danced by. It was brilliant.
After the show, we went and got some ice cream.
I found this place called Amorino,
on Urban Spoon and it definitely lived up to its reviews.
So good.
They have fresh ice creams, gourmet hot cocoas, chocolates,
waffles, waffles with ice cream on top, and other funky candies.
Mom, Dad, and Anna,
when you come to visit in June, we have got to go there!
Heather and Steven with their nutella and yogurt flavored ice cream topped waffles.
I stuck with the ice cream only.
I got nutella, stracciatella, and Madagascar vanilla bean.
Definitely recommend the nutella one.
It even came with a cute little chocolate wafer cookie on top.
Nate's was really cool.
Their signature thing that they do there
is to make their ice cream cones shaped into flowers.
They made a middle section,
and then added more, petal by petal.
And of course they topped it with the chocolate wafer like mine.
Such a cool thing.
I love when food becomes art work!
