The Sound of Music play

Yesterday evening, Jennifer, Amy, and I (Susan) were able to go with friends to a "Sound of Music" play for a friend's birthday. It was held at Toby's Dinner Theatre in Columbia, Maryland. The play was excellent and was based on one of our favorite stories. We had a wonderful time! On the way home, we listened to the von Trapp Children's new A Cappella CD. I thought some of you would enjoy this short clip of them a couple years ago, on YouTube- since we are in the Sound of Music mood! :)
