Wicked Birthday

_MG_5796.jpgMy Lutheran Stud entered into his mid-30s yesterday. I never thought I'd see the day. ;) 
_MG_5804.jpgThe children and I bought him a Rockies mug. We did a little celebrating with ice cream floats before dinner. No cake or cupcakes; just ice cream. It was kind of fun, but felt a bit off. The kids wanted to know where the cake went. My dear husband only wanted floats, no cake. Can you believe it?
_MG_5806.jpgAfter celebrating with our children the two of us headed downtown to see a show. I highly recommend that you see a show if you're ever in Denver. It's so much fun. We've been to quite a few now.
_MG_5811.jpgThis time we saw Wicked, and let me tell it was pretty wicked awesome!
It's gonna be a Wicked evening!The story line was fantastic and incredibly twisted! It really gets you thinking about The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
_MG_5813.jpgThe area around the Denver Center for Performing Arts is pretty cool. You'd never know it was tucked away in the middle of the city. 
_MG_5816.jpgThere are little balconies where one can take in the view.

I have the soundtrack somewhere if you want to borrow it!! Such a great show. When I saw it the first time, I was in St. Louis and it was a new production and had a lot of issues during the show (A blackout, and Glinda's dress tore). I saw it again in L.A years later in a theater made for the show and it was INCREDIBLE. My Glinda was Megan Hilty, who is now one of the two stars on "Smash"!

I love the picture of the Wicked sign where you can see your reflection. So cute. Glad you had a great time.

That was Jared's idea. He said I should get a reflection of us in the window. :)
