how do you say des moines?

This past weekend Beckett and I stole away for a quick weekend in Des Moines, IA to see a Rodgers and Hammersteins Cinderella musical. And it was fantastic.

The morning of the show, we checked out of the hotel and had fun exploring the little city of Des Moines before heading over to the Civic Center.

We had some great coffee at a little place called Java Joes Coffee House. 
We also got to go see the hotel where Beckett and his dad would go stay for Beckett’s Barbazon competitions in high school! I made him “walk the runway.” It was hilarious.

Cinderella’s costume changes were my favorite part of the show! She twirled around and all of a sudden she was wearing a different dress! We have no idea how they did that! 
Thanks for reading!
