March 13-14, 2009
I'll let the pictures do the talking :)

Kylie just realized that she is not going to go get braces. A different surprise awaits her!

A great little birthday book that announces a drive to Portland Oregon where a hotel stay awaits and tickets to Wicked! Surprise is an understatement.

The family outside of Keller Auditorium. It's getting exciting!

The stage before the show begins-we had amazing seats!

While walking back to the hotel (the beautiful waterfront Marriott), we passed by the stage door and saw that all of the actors were leaving. We stayed and met all of the actors. They were sooo generous and kind. They signed the girls playbills and took photos with them. Here is the Wizard!



We waited the longest for her. She had to shower all of her green makeup off. Truly worth the wait.


I can't begin to tell you the excitement we all felt as we finished walking back to the hotel. We met them! The amazing actors who transported us away for three hours to a wonderful world of song, dance, love, betrayel, cheers, tears and applause.

We were on this grand adventure with our dear, dear friends Eddie and Mindee. Here we are enjoying a midnight dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. YUM! YUM! YUM! Kylie of course ordered a club sandwich-her favorite.

Talk about string cheese!

Perfectly Wicked T-Shirts to end a perfectly Wicked Weekend!

Love you, girls!

What a great birthday surprise! Glad to see you all had fun.

Okay, I am freaking out because one of your daughters could be your twin! I'm embarassed that I don't know which one's which, but I can't believe how much the one in the polka dots looks EXACTLY like you.

P.S. What a fun birthday surprise!

I love that play. I get to see it again this fall. Can't wait. I know Ruby would love to see it, she knows the music by heart, but I decided at six, I shouldn't spend the money. I can't wait until my girls are a little older and can really value the experience like yours!
