You Write The Rules With The Harlem Globetrotters #GlobieFamily

This year we're super stoked to be able to see The Harlem Globetrotters in Cincinnati with my parents on December 29th, as part of the Globetrotters' new affiliate program.   The Harlem Globetrotters will be rockin' the midwest next week, including Allstate Arena in Chicago on Friday, December 28th for all our ChiIL Chi, IL families out there.

For us, the holidays are family time.  Our kids are off school for an extended break from December 15th through January 7th, so we spend loads of time together and make it to see two sets of grandparents and extended family.  With such a long winter break from our school and work routines, we're especially on the lookout for fun activities to do together.  

I have fond memories of seeing The Harlem Globetrotters with my grandparents and parents back in the 70's, during my own childhood, and can't wait to recreate the experience with my own kids.   I was also pretty jazzed to just learn this week that the father of a long time blogger friend of mine was actually a Harlem Globetrotter back in the 50's!   My dad and my husband's dad were both accountants, and since they never juggled the books, let alone basketballs, having an Ex-Globetrotter Dad seems exotic and fun to me. 

We're an active family who loves to go to theatre, see live music, and travel.  We particularly love to laugh together.   My kids are avid circus arts fans and have been taking classes and performing for two years with CircEsteem.   They've both studied juggling, acro and clowning, so I know they'll enjoy seeing those elements merged into basketball by the infamous Globetrotters.

Daily urban life can get hectic and fly by, and kids grow up stunningly fast.   So we make a point to hang out and play together.   There's nothing that makes me smile more than taking photos and videos of my kids laughing, grinning and enjoying life.   They're smiling already, watching The Harlem Globetrotters videos on YouTube and anticipating the live spectacle to come!   They've also been laughing as they help choose possible new, silly rules for the game we'll see.

NEW this year. For the first time ever, fans - yes YOU - are in charge and get to call the shots. The idea behind The Globetrotters new show, "You Write The Rules" is that YOU decide the new rule we add to Globetrotters basketball, a rule that could affect the outcome of the game.  It's #YOURRULE, so vote now for the rule that YOU want to see when you come to watch us play in your town!

The Harlem Globetrotters love seeing families laugh together during our games, and would love to see your family when we come to a city near you.  If you’re looking for an awesome event the whole family will enjoy, get your tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters “You Write the Rules” tour.  Your family’s smiles will start before you even get to the game because this year, your family can vote at, and decide rules for the game like two balls in play at the same time that could affect the final outcome. After the game, Globetrotters will stay on court to sign autographs and take photographs with your kids.
