Wicked Weekend

My sister has been obsessed with the musical "Wicked" for a while now. She and a group of friends traveled from Utah to L.A. to see it last year. She is constantly singing all of the songs from the soundtrack and was determined to get me to like it. Her opportunity arrived when it was traveling through Portland. Heather wanted to go see this with Annah and Megan (her two daughters) and since Megan lives here in Oregon, she thought it would be fun to fly here and all of us go see it. We just weren't sure it was going to happen and then one day Brad (Heather's husband) called me. I can always tell when Brad is working up a plan. He probably called me about 4 times within a couple of hours and just kept asking me about dates of the show and if was I planning on going...just questions like that. Next call I get from him, he tells me that he has booked a flight for Annah and Heather and bought tickets for all of us to go to the show!

Let me explain the picture above...
I really enjoy giving my sister a hard time about her love for Wicked. The songs she would play for me all sounded SO cheesy. I guess I've never been big on musicals. Anyway, when I picked her up at the airport, I wore my witches hat a played "No One Mourns the Wicked" really loudly on the stereo. I got out to help her get her luggage out of the car and cackled a few times.

While Heather was here, we decided to get all of the sis-in-laws together. Miriam, Sariah and Amber came up from Eugene and we all went to Changs. YUMMY!!! Actually, Heather and I got together with Megan and her boyfriend Justin the night before at Changs...2 days of Changs is a good thing! Anyway, it was a lot of fun to hang out just us girls!

We went to see Wicked at the Keller Auditorium. Across from the building is this gorgeous fountain. We decided to take advantage of the clear weather and take some pictures.

I really did enjoy the show! It was fun to see Glenda (the gu is silent (: ) and the "wicked" witch, from that point of view! The production itself was amazing...the acting was great...and all in all, I enjoyed myself! However, I will still give my sister a hard time about her obsession...that's what I do!
