To say that Maddy is a Disney fan is a bit of an understatement! She LOVES everything Disney -- especially DisneyWorld and her fav buddy, Mickey Mouse. Simba (from the Lion King, remember?) is a close second, but Simba is often sent to the naughty stair. Of course, she actually loves nearly every Disney stuffed animal ever made! She did go through a Princess phase and loves them too, but that phase seems to be passing a bit lately.
A few months ago, a friend got the inside scoop on buying tickets to Disney on Ice early. I jumped on the chance and have been keeping the Disney on Ice performance as a special treat for Maddy. I normally would not go to something like this on a school night, but the tickets were an incredible bargain and it seemed that it was the only performance that would work for us.
So, we had a little road trip last evening with Jodee and the cute Carson and Shari and the adorable Kelsey. Shari's hub, Geoff, came along too and is also kind of cute. Jodee drove her "mom van" complete with DVD player. The kids watched a movie on the way and we did not hear any of them utter the famous words, "Are we there yet?"
The show was amazing -- fun effects, great skating and a cute story. Maddy and I really enjoyed hearing some of our favorite Disney songs and seeing the characters. Definitely made me want to start planning a return trip to DisneyWorld and I know Maddy would agree! It was really a fun evening! For those of you who know Jodee and how much she loves to get photos to go along with her blog posts, yes, that is her below scanning her photos while waiting to get out of the parking lot. Thanks again for driving Jodee!
