It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Family Fun Goal: See a Play or Musical

     We found some very affordable tickets to see the musical of Disney's Aladdin at the Muny in St. Louis. (Guess what? They give away 1000 tickets free to each show. We weren't able to arrive early enough to secure some because we drove over after work but good to know for future reference.) 

      None of us had ever been to the Muny before and it was so neat! 11.000 seats and a stage that is half the size of a football field. It is steeped in tradition and there was most definitely a hometown feeling. On the downside, it is outdoors - and it was hot. VERY HOT!

The theatre is surrounded by a beautiful park where people picnic before the show.

The saddest part of the show: It is Aladdin and yet you are told NOT to sing along!
