The Lion King

I have been wanting to see The Lion King for forever!  Last year I had checked out the possibility of taking the kids to NYC to see the show, but then we got even better news…The Lion King was coming right to our own Proctor’s Theater! 

As a Christmas gift, my mom brought me and the kids to the show.  We were all beyond excited!  My aunt and uncle had gotten them the animated Lion King dvd for Christmas also, and Seamus and Grace were hooked!  They couldn’t wait to see it!

Last night was the big night…

Unfortunately, the picture taking was extremely limited due to the the strict rules at the theater.  But the memory of this event will stay with us forever!

What an amazing show!  I had heard that it has to be seen to be believed, and how true that is.  The kids absolutely loved it, and sat completely in awe for the entire 2.5 hour show.  I was so happy to experience it with them.  Out in the lobby we, even got to see some of the characters in full costume – incredible to see up close. 

If you get a chance to see it, GO!  You will not regret it!

We saw it in LA and loved it. Glad you guys were able to see it and that the kids liked it too - how fun to start them in the theatre so early!

My parents and I guess from her comment, my sister saw it on Broadway. Maybe I'll take Pres to go see it on one of our trips up to NY this summer. I absolutely love your boots! You look fabulous. And the kids are the cutest. They are always posing-so good for the camera. Glad you guys enjoyed the show!

What an exciting night for you guys!! I can just imagine how much Seamus and Grace loved it - they are always so adorable in all of your pictures!
We went to see it in Baltimore several years ago with my parents and loved it, and I hope that we can take the boys to see it in a couple of years! It really is an amazing show to see in person!
