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.
