It was a busy week here last week and over this long weekend (for those who don’t know — we have a long weekend for Family Day today). I got a lot of sewing and projects finished up, I took the older kidlets to Disney on Ice, and we had a weekend packed with fun activities with an Uncle Meatball! Simply living life is the only excuse I offer for not having kept up on the blog…
Let me tell you, Disney on Ice is AN EXPERIENCE! Wow! It’s totally a lesson in commercialism but it’s also magical! It was overwhelming just arriving at the arena — finally figuring out the parking (cha-ching $), walking through the main entrance doors and landing right in the middle of a veritable Disney Marketplace (cha-ching$), and passing about half a dozen concession stands on the way to our seats (cha-ching$)… No wonder they give away so many free tickets through the library (each of the kidlets read 5 books to get a free ticket) when they’re charging $12 for cotton candy! Insanely commercialized!
But we also had amazing seats! Check out the view we had! My camera couldn’t handle the dark and all the fast movement of the skaters but we got a few pictures of the performances. Noah was sold the moment the show started with the Incredibles! (Gasp! The Incredibles! Where’s Dash, Mom?!) But both kidlets were too overwhelmed to stand up at their seats to join in the “exercises” and dancing. Anna nearly fell out of her seat when Tinkerbell floated out, suspended above the ice and dropping pixie dust! They were mesmerized from beginning to end — even with the zamboni that cleaned the ice during intermission! Anna’s only complaint was that there needed to be more princesses (apparently the princess parade at the end just isn’t enough!).
Needless to say, by the time we got home at nearly 10 p.m. I had two incredibly tired little kidlets!
