The Lion King

Several months ago we bought tickets for us and several in our family to travel to Cleveland, OH to see the Lion King, the Disney musical that plays on Broadway.  Most people have heard about the production and I knew it would be cool, but it was beyond cool!  The design and costuming and everything were just amazing!  Of course, the production company frowns on pics so you will have to do your own googling (and you should) if you haven’t seen the costuming and sets.  We were worried about traveling with Isaac but decided to give it a try and see how we did.  By the smiles, I think you will agree that things are going pretty well!

It was a fun trip in addition to the musical itself.  Emily’s folks road in our car and all 6 of us fit very well.  We have an SUV which hauled us and our stuff comfortably.  Ohio is flat so gas mileage worked out well  with all of us taking one car.  We stopped several times to let Isaac get out and stretch his legs often.  My Mom and cousin met us there so it was a big family affair.  Abigail went back to PA with my side of the family for the week.  The rest of us stuck around to visit with Emily’s cousin who is a doctor in Cleveland.  We had a nice time chatting with him and getting the scoop on Cleveland.  It was a pretty fun time just goofing around in the hotel and reading, talking, doing nothing really.

I don’t have much nice to say about Cleveland in general, but their theater district is pretty nice and we had great weather.  That being said, I am glad that the city is a couple hundred miles away…just to be sure.  As I have found several times recently, being among other people reminds me of how thankful to have the life I have…enough said.

Anyhow, if you have not seen the Lion King, it is a great show and worth your time to go and see.  It’s family friendly and really pretty amazing!  Timone and Pumba do not disappoint!
