Oh my gosh- I get sooo excited and a huge smile on my face from just even THINKING of Wicked! AAAAAHHHHH!!! (That's me screaming because I loved it so much). So anyway, it was the BEST thing EVER!! This past weekend -May 26th -I flew to Denver and met my Mom, my sister Anneke, my aunt Darla and her daughter Diane, who had driven out there the day before and we went and saw Wicked. People- if you haven't seen it, you HAVE to go. It's AMAZING! The music of course is fabulous, and it was just so hilarious and amazing! It gave me such a different outlook on the Wizard of Oz. Oh I just can't wait to go again! It was hilarious because as soon as it started, Anneke, just started bawling because she was so excited. She pretty much cried through the whole thing. She was a mess by the time it was over. I couldn't help make fun of her for it. GET A GRIP LADY! :) No, it was really good- and it did almost (and I repeat ALMOST) brings you to tears in a spot or two. Elfaba was my favorite by far! AMAZING VOICE! But- the whole thing was spectacular. SPECTACULAR! Does that word describe it? Hmm- Hold please.....

This is the Denver Performing Arts Center where we watched Wicked. There are like 5 theaters or something here and it was just a really cool huge center with little cafes and shops and stuff outside between the theaters.

Here I am outside of our theater.

Here's the crew walking down 16th Street Mall after a day of Wicked and shopping. Oh and after the show we went to Cheesecake Factory- YUM!

This is a random old man playing the saxaphone, apparently. Not only was he playing the saxaphone on the street, but he was also wearing fringe. I dare say it doesn't get better than that.
Here's just a shot of some buildings on the 16th Street Mall. There was not really any AMAZING stores there, but it was fun just to walk around and do a little shopping and just enjoy the city and the vacation. No cars can drive down the 16th Street Mall, they only let a shuttle and a little train drive down it, and I almost stepped out in front of both in the course of 3 hours. Luckily the shuttle driver gave a little honk on his horn.
