April on TV – with special guests!

Today was a special Spring Break edition of Adventures with Theo, when Theo himself got to come along to the TV studio with me! I also had a very special guest join me, my good friend Ita Tonga! We’ve been friends since she was in law school with my husband over 10 years ago. She’s the best and I asked her to be my “little kid” consultant to check out some activities that Theo has aged out of. Here are the topics we discussed on today’s segment:

Sundance 2018

As I mentioned on my January segment/blog post, we were really excited to attend a number of Sundance Film Festival shows this year. In the past I’ve taken Theo to the Sundance Kids section of films, but this year we branched out and went to “regular” films too. They were all documentaries and we had a great time!

The Sundance Kids section film that we watched, Science Fair, was Theo’s favorite. We also learned more about the Intel ISEF science fair during the documentary Inventing Tomorrow. The documentary about Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, inspired him to pull out our old DVDs of the show that we received as a gift when Theo was a toddler. Those are classics! We also saw the documentary Kusama – Infinity about the groundbreaking Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. There is a work by her at the local Utah Museum of Fine Arts that we look forward to seeing, now that we know more about her and her artwork.

Another one of Theo’s favorites was the documentary Chef Flynn about the young chef Flynn McGarry who started cooking in his home around Theo’s age, and is now opening his new restaurant in NYC called Gem (at age 19!). We were excited to see Chef Flynn himself during the Q&A after the film. One of the great perks about this film festival coming to town each year. Until next year, Sundance!
