It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Yep, you guessed it. We went and saw one of the newest shows here on Broadway, A Tale of Two Cities. It started less than 2 months ago and didn't get really good reviews. I guess because of the rumors spread by the critics and the tough economic environment right now, the show actually got the boot. I feel bad for all of those investors - they spent all this money writing the songs and before it could really get started, it is gone. Wow!

But, Emily and I absolutely loved it! We thought it was fantastic. We found out Sat around 3 PM that the last show was Sunday, so around 6:30 we went to Times Sq and got tickets. They were great - mezzanine directly in the middle. We really had a ball and are so glad that we saw it before it closed the doors.

Needless to say, it was the best of times for us, the worst of times for the actors! :-)

WINTUK - Cirque Du Soleil

We did it. We finally saw Cirque Du Soleil - Wintuk here are Madison Square Garden. We heard great things, so decided to go and see it. It was phenomenal! The dancers/actors are so talented and were doing the craziest things. Probably more tailored for children, because it is about this boy who wants it to snow to usher in Winter, but we had a good time.


We broke down and decided to go to Disney World! I know - you are probably thinking why did 2 adults with no children go to Disney? We are fairly close to Florida, and Em has never been, so we thought it would be fun. We flew out Friday night after work, and then flew home Tuesday night. It truly was a magical 4 days. We stayed in a Disney World hotel, so we were lucky to have the Disney Magical Express pick us up from the airport, and had extended hours every day to the theme parks.

We went to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. We had such a great time! Rob's favorites were Space Mountain and the new Everest ride at Animal Kingdom. Also, there was a really fun Buzz Lightyear game/ride that was pretty fun. Emily's favorites were Splash Mtn, Space Mtn, Rock'n Roller Coaster and Everest. Her ultimate favorite experience was when we rode Splash mtn, and when we finished, there was no one in line and the people let us ride it again without ever getting out of the boat.

We really got lucky with choosing a great weekend, the lines were really short so we got to ride every ride multiple times. The weather was also so wonderful - a nice break from cold New York. Enjoy the pics!
