My awesome friend, Vivian, organized a huge group section of tickets to Wicked when it was playing in Seattle in November.  We intended on an adults-only outing on a Friday night, but when we discovered the weekday matinee prices were about 2/3 the cost, we jumped at that and decided to include the kids too!
I've been trying to make a conscious effort to do things with Carson and Addy without the little boys.  I love doing things all together as a family.  But the demands of a 4 year old and baby often take over, and the big kids must take a back seat to what is going on.  So it is nice to take them out on their own once in awhile. It also gives me hope for the future in actually doing these things again as a big family.  I often feel like we will be in the baby stage forever!  But the kids really do grow up, can sit through movies, can be polite at restaurants, and enjoy Broadway musicals!
We had such a good time!  Trevor and I saw it a few years ago, so I knew the kids would love it and be able to easily follow it.  Some of the kids got scared, but not my troopers.  We downloaded the soundtrack as soon as we got home.  And the kids love the music (especially the song "Popular").  So glad we were able to take them and give them a little cultural experience.  My parents were great about's a good thing!
A few of the moms got together and ordered these cute tulle skirts for the girlies.  I wish I had a picture of them together. They looked so cute! 
There was a huge group of about 30 of us and it was such a blast! Grateful to be included with such a wonderful group of friends that enjoy getting our kids out for outings and adventures and musicals!! 
We ended the night at Cheesecake factory...yum, yum!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
