It is hard to believe Mario is going back to school this week, it seems as if yesterday was his last day of school - where did his summer break go? On Mario's last day of school this past year, we surprised him by taking him to the airport and flying to London to see the Lion King at London's Lyceum Theatre. Our first stop upon arriving in London was visiting Paddington Bear in Paddington Station, then we got all dressed up, Mario and I wore Animalesque hand made Lion masks (Mario was Simba and I was Nala) and went to the Lyceum Theatre. Needless to say, Mario and I were a big hit at the Theatre - even the cast of the play commented on how much Swag Mario had in his Simba mask! We all enjoyed the play and Mario watched most of it with his mouth wide-open in awe, he always talks about The Lion King and how he wants to see it again. Mario now asks every time he sees a movie that he likes "Is this movie also a play with real actors? Can we go see this play?". Mario's favorite thing to play with me this summer has been putting on plays with me and pretending we are actors. What an amazing experience the Lion King was and I am happy to share Mario's pure joy with you!
