One note about this trip is that it was a girl get together with husbands optional. I was the only husband who came. That's me in a house with six women and as many as five children, all of whom happened to be girls. The HD flat screen downstairs mixed with college football kept me happy in the man-cave while the women shopped, or whatever it is that women do.
We also had the opportunity to go to our first ever Sounders game with Brandon and Ashely. We liked the marching band and loaded up on Sounders gear. Too bad it ended up a 0-0 tie. At least it was an exciting game.
Bri has been talking about taking me to see Wicked (The New Musical!) ever since two hours after she saw it last time, about two years ago. So we headed down to the Paramount for "one short day in the emerald city", which is ironic, seeing how we live in the Emerald City: a point which was not lost on the advertisers. Gravity was defied, hearts were softened, and we all learned a valuable lesson about not judging a book by its cover.(Isn't Bri a babe?)
