Showing Some Class with the Lions

I see myself as your average guy who likes to do "manly things" like hiking, camping, fishing, and talking about lawns over a cold beer with the neighbors. Every once in awhile though, you've got to clean yourself up, put on a nice shirt, and go do something with some class. In this case it was taking the family (sans the littlest one) to a Broadway production of The Lion King, which was showing here in town (and I had to get tickets for almost 8 months ago).

I'll be honest though, I'm not usually the type that enjoys musicals and such, but this play just plain rocks. Everything from the elaborate costumes, to the talented performers, and my favorite part the amazing live music. Really a great show.

So there I found myself with a glass of red wine in one hand, and my daughter's excited grip in the other, watching the amazing performance unfold and seeing it reflected off her beaming eyes as she stared in awe. Another one of those "this is what it's all about" moments in a completely different world from where I was by that alpine lake just a few days ago.
