And just to show that we were all there at the same time, the obligatory scrunch picture. Good thing Court's so much taller than me.
Then, it was time to feel a little Wicked. I was so excited that we could get tickets. We just happened to be there when it was there as well. Pretty exciting.
Here we are ready to go. Brent's tie is new and so is my scarf. I got two compliments from strangers on my scarf, so that makes me think it's a keeper.
We haven't been to a musical for a long time so I was exciting. I've heard nothing but good things about Wicked and, believe me, it did NOT disappoint. The music is even better now that I know what the story is all about. Too great!
Once we were done with Wicked, we were all a little hungry, so we went to happy hour at the restaurant in the hotel. That was the first time I've ever been in a bar and also the first time that I was carded. It was an interesting experience. Especially when we started the day out in the temple. They didn't seem to mind that all we ordered were sodas. The food was actually really good. The company wasn't that bad either.
I kept trying to decide if I should mention that not all of us were carded. I don't think I'll embarrass him by saying who it was, but it gave us a good laugh. Sorry. :) I'm just glad that my white hair had just been dyed, or else it would have been two people.
Saturday was more shopping, an amazingly wonderful carmel apple (can you really call it a carmel apple when there is more chocolate than carmel?), a movie (He's Just Not That Into You - not bad), and a long drive home.
We had a lot of fun. I know Brent really loves going to basketball, and has fun with the company. And I enjoyed having time to be with Court and just do what we wanted to do. It was kind of weird not having the kids around. I like it both ways ... it's nice having a friend like that.
Ok, that's about it. The roofers seem to be packing up for the night. The basketball game seems to be a blow out - we'll see. Have a great night!
