Sunday night we took Jack to his first broadway musical- The Lion King! It was a huge hit, aside from the sleepiness that hit him about halfway through the second act. But, he managed to stay awake and sat mesmerized, as David and I did, by all of the beautifully costumed animals. I wish I could have managed to sneak a few photos of the production, which was really quite lovely. I borrowed a few from various sources (named below) just to offer you a peak at what a treat it was to see!
Jack alternated between our two laps and (quietly) asked a lot of questions, as we predicted would happen. My favorite two characters (I think, it's actually quite hard to pick!) were Rafiki and Zazu. I think that Jack liked them all a lot too and when we let him pick a small stuffed animal to bring home, he had a little trouble deciding, but ultimately went with Zazu who is quite cute. Thank you to Mia and Popi for the tickets (it was a Christmas present for Jack)! We had a fun family date night!
