dpp 2012 :: december 26th :: lion king

12.261

Our Google Calendar has said, “KEEP TODAY CLEAR” for December 26th for awhile.  I knew “something” was happening, but amazingly, had no clue what until Christmas Day.  Matt set up a scavenger hunt using QR codes. Alex and I had to go on a hunt around the house, finding the codes, using the ipad to watch videos to help us find clues….eventually getting to a video clip from The Lion King after watching Tony Bennett’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” The clues led to tickets for a matinee of the Lion King in San Francisco for Alex and me!  I was so excited—and shocked and surprised!—and so thankful for Matt’s creativity and the generosity of our WHOLE family to make this treat possible!!!  Alex and I took BART into the City together, watched the performance from Orchestra seats, up close and personal, and ooohed and ahhed throughout the show.  As I texted to Matt after the performance, Alex’s first comment at the end was, “Wasn’t that WONDERFUL, Mom?!?”  Thinking that means he loved it as much as me!
