Elephant and Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!” is a delightful new musical about two best friends and their many adventures.

Pi DayDoes anyone else get a little chuckle out of Pi Day (aka March 14th, aka 3.14)? It tickles my funny bone every year, and I totally justify serving pie for dinner (that’s chicken pot pie followed by a berry pie for dessert).
