The Insta-Home Challenge: Annville, PA

September 13, 2013

Sorry folks, this title is waaaay misleading. Our summer home was neither instant nor a challenge for us. Instead, it was a beautifully restored, rustic Revolutionary War-era dwelling with actual 250-year-old log construction details, nestled in the lush, bucolic countryside outside of Hershey, PA.

(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 […]

Who’s your (Scar) Daddy?

July 30, 2012

Two years ago, my son met his dad for the first time in a most unconventional, dramatic way. Because Max decided to exit the womb almost 2 months early, he caught Mike flat-footed on Pride Rock. My water broke right before Mike was to take the stage as Scar in The Lion King at the […]

July 29, 2012
