Addie adores her new musical skills and so I thought a perfect date idea would be to go piano hunting. When Ellie found out what the plan was for Addie's date, she was confused and asked for more details. She tried to understand how one hunts pianos and simply couldn't. Addie, on the other hand, didn't have a problem at all. "Ellie, we're going to hunt wild pianos in their natural habitat!"
Ft Collins has a program called "Pianos About Town" in which artists have fixed up and painted beautiful pianos. Normally they don't tell people where the pianos are, but instead they're scattered around town for people to stumble upon in unexpected places. However, I was lucky to have convinced them to tell me where to look (I'm not familiar with Ft Collins and I wanted the day to be really special). It was magic! It seemed that every piano was better than the previous. She liked the ones with old keys the best, but also really liked the piano with the sunset.
And watching the skills that this girl is developing? Mommy could not be more proud. We successfully hunted and tamed 6 wild pianos and the day could not have been any better.
