Riverdance Birthday

OK - those of you who like checking our blog for little history lessons (you know who you are) this won't be one of them. But, it is another adventure. For Barb's recent birthday, Dan gave her two tickets to see Riverdance at Wolf Trap.

Wolf Trap is an outdoor, open air venue, with both covered and lawn seating. Wolf Trap is a part of the National Park Service, similar to Ravinia in the Chicago area. Here are a couple of photos of the grounds and stage area.

Back to Riverdance. People seem to either love it, or hate it. It is either a fantastic display of dancing prowess or a bizarre armless flailing of the legs. Anyway, we had been wanting to see it for a long time and, last Friday night, we finally did it. It was a wonderful evening and we loved it!

On Barb's actual birthday we went for a lobster dinner at Clyde's of Georgetown and then home to Skype with the kids and open gifts.

What a fun birthday!! I, for one, vote for the bizzarre armless flailing of the legs :)
