Family Outing - Cirque de Soleil!

Fusing the 3000 year-old tradition of Chinese acrobatic arts with the multidisciplinary approach of Cirque du Soleil, Dralion draws its inspiration from Eastern philosophy and its never-ending quest for harmony between humans and nature. The show's name is derived from its two emblematic creatures: the dragon, symbolizing the East, and the lion, symbolizing the West.

As part of our Mother's Day gifts back in May, we ladies all received tickets to attend Cirque de Soleil - Dralion, in Raleigh on August 18th.  We had been looking forward to it for months, and it was totally by accident that we even colored coordinated our outfits! Guess three generations of girls are more alike than we even realize...

Nick has been to Cirque shows in Vegas before, but for the rest of us this was a first and we loved it. What made it even more special was the fact that EZ could actually go to an arena and sit in the seat for almost two hours, except for a break at intermission! Those rows are very close together with very little knee room, let alone room to slouch down or partially recline. All I have to say is thank goodness for pain medication (though he did pay a bit of a price the next day with some extra sacral soreness). I really appreciate the fact that EZ toughed it out and was able to do this with his family. Another first and a fun family memory! (Hopefully Leah and Kyle can join us next time!)
