Best Recipe Ever

Okay, so I normally don't post recipes here on this blog, but this delicious one I just couldn't resist.  I got the idea for this recipe from an envelope in the mail.  In the envelope was a schedule for the upcoming events showing at the Kennedy Center this year.  After drooling over this one particular item on the schedule, Glen and I carefully concocted this recipe.  After a bunch of research and  a few set-backs along the way,  months and months later, we've  finally got the recipe just right.   Here it is for your enjoyment!

The ingredients:
1 theater loving Daddy
5 up-and-coming theater loving children
1 excited wife (and throw in a sister for good measure)
1 medium size minivan
1 GPS (optional, but highly recommended)
20 dollars for parking
1 camera
4 rows back (preferably center seats)

Take the 7 (+1) family members and toss them into a medium-size minivan.  Buckle tightly.  Drive approximately 15 miles  to the Kennedy Center parking garage.  Beware of small signs and overgrown pigeons.     If seating has not yet opened, take some time to have a potty break (or two) and enjoy the fresh air.  Take some pictures.  Maybe even a self-portrait or a squinty eyed one staring into the sun.  Don't forget a family picture in front of the Wicked sign.  Take one more potty break for the small bladdered among you (no names mentioned...Adam...). 

Enter the theater and find your seats.  Take care not to hyperventilate upon seeing that your seats are 4th row, smack dab in the center (again, no names mentioned....Cami...).   Sit back and enjoy the amazing show! 

Make  the day complete with a rocking taco salad at the brand new Cafe Rio in Manassas, then go home and work on your callings.  Finish off with a late-night trip to three different Targets for stocking up on glue sticks before the sale ends.  Collapse into bed with "Defying Gravity" and "For Good" wafting through your brain.  Enjoy!

Sounds like a WICKED fun day with the family. Very helpful to take along an extra person to act of photog for the family outing.

The music from WICKED (especially Defying Gravity) is always playing somewhere in my head.

What a spectacular day! And thanks A.L. for the great pix...
