A Date with Good Morning America: New York City Part 2

Our second day in New York City, 6 of us got us early and walked to Times Square to be apart of Good Morning America. Sarah, a first grade teacher and super scrapbooker, made a sign(and hauled it all the way from Indiana) so that we might be picked out of the crowd for TV.  Her sign worked, because we were featured on TV several times. Thanks Sarah! She also brought along stick on mustaches which  brought us a lot of laughs. That morning we saw Barbara Walters, Laura Spencer, George Stephanopoulos, and Sam Champion up close and personal.  It was a morning to remember.

We saw The Lion King at the Minskoff Theater. The show was spectacular! This is the second time I've seen it on Broadway and the second was better than the first.
