We've been here. .
I've not been running ALL the time. .
In addition to kids, 4-H, and Christ centered things. .
I've taken time to do a lot of cooking. .cleaning. .
steaming carpets. .packing for a garage sale. .
I even spent a few hours on Pinterest last weekend instead of blogging!
But here I am. .
back again this week. .
with some photos of our lives. .
to share with our family and friends!!
The first exciting thing that I did was attend the Lion King Broadway production when it was in Wichita! Unfortunately, they are quite strict with cameras being used. .so the photos I am sharing were all taken, courtesy of the broadway publicity photos they share online!
|Rafiki. .This girl can SING!! I mean. .belt it out. .cut glass with her crystal clear voice. .WOW!! She was my favorite part! God blessed her with a MIGHTY voice!|
I have been waiting for the last SIXTEEN years to see this production!! The production started on Broadway shortly before Tristan was born. I remember VIVIDLY, nursing Tristan on the couch, watching Regis and Kathie Lee. .and seeing them interview the cast. .in costume. Someday, I thought. .someday!!
|The costumes were incredible!! The cast wore helmets depicting their character's face. .Their moves were so graceful. .and in stances like this standoff between Simba (or Mufasa) and Scar totally captured the effect!|
So a few years back, I worked with a single female doctor from India who loved to travel. .we came up with the idea that we would take a weekend trip to New York City. .because, at that time, Jeremy had NO desire to see the city, and he knew it could be my one and only chance to see NYC. .he graciously offered to stay home with the THREE boys so we could go. On the agenda. .a Broadway musical. .on BROADWAY. .
|Zazu the bird was a puppet, run by this guy. .His voice was so similar to the cartoon movie. .and most of the lines were similar to the cartoon. .|
I was SOOO disappointed that the Lion King was sold out. .
several months in advance of our trip!!
We saw Beauty and the Beast. .
which was great fun anyway. .
And I vowed at that show, that I would see as many Broadway productions as I could in my lifetime!
|The other really amazing animal, in my opinion were the giraffes. The back legs were human legs on stilts. The giraffe head was worn on their heads, and the front legs were their arms working extra stilts. .Talk about coordination!!|
As for me. .
I have a ticket to see Les Miserables in Oklahoma City with some of my coworkers next month. .and hopefully another spot in their car in April when West Side Story is there. .
though. .from the sounds of some of the girls last weekend. .
we may be taking our OWN carload of Kansans to see the production!!
