It was a full day of family fun for my daughter and I in the Flinthills of northeast Kansas! After attending a tailgate and then watching the KSU Wildcats squeak out a win in their last non-conference game of the regular 2008 football season, we attended a wonderful musical performance of “The Wizard of Oz” in the remarkable “Columbian Theater” in Wamego, Kansas. The Columbian reminds me a lot of The Pollard Theater in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where our family saw the musical “Big River” last fall.
Here are a few photo highlights from our day!

Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West posed with Sarah after the musical was over:
Perhaps most remarkable in tonight’s performance was the work of the “flight crew” who managed to empower witches as well as monkeys to fly!
While the “Wizard of Oz” musical performance was likely the highlight of my daughter’s day today, attending a KSU football game with my dad was certainly mine:
During the game, fans were asked to take photos with their cell phones and then email them to email@example.com. I snapped and emailed in the following photo with my iPhone, but it was NOT shown in the 2nd half along with other submitted fan photos. I wonder if the reason it was excluded was the guy sitting behind us, who looks like he was TOTALLY ASLEEP! The game wasn’t a nail-biter for most of the afternoon, but it certainly wasn’t as boring as this fellow apparently found it! (We should probably give him the benefit of the doubt, I bet his eyes just happened to be closed when I snapped the shutter for this picture.)
My only complaint from the day was that outside bottles of water are NOT allowed in Bill Snyder family stadium, and the stadium-wide fixed price for bottled water is $3.50 each for 20 ounces. Good grief! I think that is ridiculous.
Perhaps the message of this t-shirt is not true. It certainly was in our house today, however! 🙂
