Isn't she darling?! How could anyone get mad at her?
I feel fortunate that I really like my in-laws. I have been blessed to have had 12 years with my father-in-law. It was by the grace of God that he lived 6 more years after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was in those last 6 years of his life I really got to know and admire him.
We were fortunate enough to get this sweet picture just a few month's before dad's death. Thanks to my sister Lindsay who took it.

While we were eating lunch and planning our next adventure for the day we found out that Wicked was playing in town at the Orpheum and they had a 2pm matinee. We absolutely love the music but have never had the opportunity to see the show, so we decided to try to get tickets. If we were lucky we might be able to get $30 seats in the the balcony. While standing in line a man approached us. He had a group of about 50 people and 2 people couldn't make it. He was selling us $75 center orchestra seats for $50 each. We only had $70 cash on us and he took it. We had fantastic seats for a mere $35 a seat. Woohoo! The show was amazing! The highlight of our trip. If you get a chance to go and see Wicked, I would highly recommend it!
I am so glad I went on this trip with Bruce. We had a fantastic time. It was so great for me to have quiet time away from kids. I loved spending time with my dear husband without all the distractions at home. I hope we can do it more often than once every 15 years.

So much has happened over the last month that I need to blog about. I will catch up next week when I take a trip to San Francisco with the love of my life. This is one of the many things I am feeling extremely grateful for. My sweet parents (bless their heart) are kind enough to watch our 4 kids while Bruce and I escape. It won't be a full fledged getaway trip as Bruce has to go for the National Architecture Convention, but I am looking forward to having time with my husband and alone time without the distraction of kids. I get to sleep, read, watch TV, wander the city, and eat without kids demanding, whining, crying, etc! I can't wait for some solitude and then miss them terribly!
