~What Life Is All About~

Today we were off to see the wizard.  

In Lancaster, Pa.


8 AM ~  Ready to go!


Rissie was excited.  
But I don't think she knew quite what to expect.


Early risers often need naps.. especially when they're on the road for over 3 hours..


Our table was front row center.  The dinner was delicious.  The show was out of this world! 


After Dorothy, The Scarecrow, The Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion woke up from the 'poppy poison' and were on their way to Oz, the curtain closed and the first act was over.
 Rissie looked as though she'd cry. 
 "What's wrong?" I asked.  
"Grammy...  they didn't show them going to see the wizard.."
(She knows this show inside out) 
I had to explain to her that the second part was yet to come.  Then she smiled.


Making memories is what life is all about.


Rissie won't easily forget about her day 
at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater 
and seeing one of her favorite shows... 
 The Wizard of Oz.


The drive back home started out with an epic downpour...  but after a few prayers and a little time...  we saw the sun.


It was a great day.  

It was a fun day. 

 It was a magical day!
