D-Day: Daddy Daughter Dora Date

On Valentine's Day, George took Olivia to see Dora Live at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ. Dora and Diego are her new favorite characters. She's been asking me to go every time she saw a sign advertising the event. Here are some pictures from their daddy-daughter date.

Livy got to have popcorn AND cotton candy! How could Daddy say no? When asked what her favorite part of the show was, she said, "seeing Eggo." She can't quite pronounce Diego yet. George said his favorite part was the way they did the character "The Map" Apparently she looked like a big rolled up map with the face cut out so the actor's face would show through. He said it was really cute. He was surprised that they put the Dora actress in a little fat suit so that she'd look as if she was a tad bit plump, just like Dora. It's always interesting to see how they bring cartoon characters to life on stage. It was quite the fun evening outing for Olivia and George. She's so lucky to have a daddy that looks forward to spending time with her at things like this!

I just googled "dora live fat suit" and arrived at your blog-- we went to see this show last night, and I was very curious about Dora's fat suit-- glad you had the same thought! My husband and I spent a little while in the first act trying to figure out if she was padded or not-- too funny!
