Wolf Trap

Saturday night Kathleen and I left our little ones at home and headed out to Wolf Trap to see Idina Menzel perform with the National Symphony Orchestra. For those that don't know, Idina was the original Elphaba in the musical "Wicked." Kathleen and I have been, well, obsessed might be too strong a word, but it's close, with the musical since we saw it together in Chicago two years ago.

While the weather was rather toasty, once we got situated on the lawn and poured our first glass of wine, it wasn't so bad. We enjoyed a great cheese platter, followed by some tasty pasta salad, and chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. The perfect picnic!

The concert was great! She was hilarious and her voice is just amazing. She sang lots of great show tunes, including several songs from "Wicked." Needless to say, we were in heaven!

Best part was getting to enjoy some much needed sister time! :)
