The Lion King

I wanted to blog about something fun and happy today.  I have been busy with paperwork preparing for Austin's psychiatric assessment coming up soon, and quite frankly, it has me a little down.  I prefer to focus on something exciting right now instead.  :)

I am taking Austin to The Lion King on Sunday.  We will be going with our friends.  We splurged a little and got a box so we can sit together without others too close (a smart idea since I do not know how Austin will react).  I figured, tickets are expensive anyway, so why not get a box?  It is going to be so much fun!  I am so EXCITED!!!  I know, I am just a big kid. :o)  I absolutely LOVE going to the theatre!  I have been hooked since my Dad took me to Starlight Express years ago.  It was MAGNIFICENT!  I was captivated from beginning to end, absolutely captivated!  I have seen many shows since, thanks to my Dad.  :)

I hope that Austin enjoys the show.  He has been to classical music concerts and has enjoyed them so I believe that all the colourful costumes, music and dance should be quite intriguing.  I can't wait to see the look on his face when that curtain opens and the stage comes to life.  I look forward to him being as captivated as I was when I was lucky enough to have my Dad take me ... thanks Dad, love you!

All the best!  *HUGS* to all! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful time at the Lion King. I've heard it's awesome! We used to take Jack to Disney on Ice when he was little (2-4) and we went to see the Wiggles once. I love live theater! It's always a treat!
