33: So, back in March, Sarah bought 3 tickets to see the Broadway show 'Wicked" in May. She gave them to Shannon for her birthday in April. The girls spent most of the day getting ready to go to the play. It was fun to see how excited they were. When they got to the box office and was checking in, they were told that the tickets were actually for 2 days prior. They could not see the show after all. So Sad!!! When they got home and we all got on the computer and found tickets for the girls to see "West SIde Story". They went to see WSS in June and said that they really enjoyed it, but it was no "Wicked"

41: We thought about finishing this book with "The End" but that isn't what We're feeling, what we really want to say is "See Ya Later, Sweetie" | Dave and JanJan love you SO MUCH! | We really hope you had the experience that you were looking for. We tried our best to make it a memorable year.
