Constructing a Disney Mini-Villain

May 22, 2014

When Max was 2, he told me he wanted to be The Lion King’s “Scar” for Halloween. Not just a sinister lion from the movie — no, that would be too easy. He wanted the Broadway version of Scar, “just like your costume, Dada.” Uhhhhh. Okay.  Of course, he told me this about 1 week [...]

An important note from the Hollick brood — now 4 of us! We done did it. We became 4. As if you couldn’t tell already — we are switching our blog name from 3 for the Road to 4 for the Road, and consequently our domain name to 4fortheroad.com. However, I’m not sure if I [...]

(Baby) Showering Us with Love

August 13, 2013

Often, people are incredulous that we travel full-time, as a family, on tour with The Lion King. What a logistical nightmare, they say. Where do you live? How do the kids go to school? Where do you call home? Does it ever get lonely? No, we say. We travel with plenty of people who are [...]

June 26, 2013

Whooo-hooozzzzzzzz. That’s the sound of me rounding into the home stretch of pregnancy — excited but exhausted. Friends, I’m at 36 weeks now and Baby Girl’s still inside! High five!

A very Disney and Scar-y 40th birthday

May 9, 2013

I love my job.  (I’m writing this bleary-eyed on a red-eye from LAX to Chicago, with a 4-hour layover before a half hour flight to Appleton, Wisconsin. I’m on a birthday high. Forgive me if I sound scattered and gushy!) I am grateful for every day that I can say that I am a member [...]

Count those holiday blessings

December 31, 2012

I’m hard on myself; the hyper-critical, perfectionist part of me rues the day we thought to start a travel/theater/parenting blog while moving every month with a toddler and a cat, while being full-time parents.

November 20, 2012

A guest blog post by Selena MoshellAngela’s note: Our friend on tour Selena Moshell is a true adventurer.
