After a very stressful week this is just what the girls and I needed…
The lights on the Ice is what caught my eye first as I held the hand of my two year while her big sister showed us the way to our seats. Counting as we went down the stairs that I thought would NEVER END! I say this not because it was inconvenient because normally it wouldn’t be but after the x-rays this week on my broken foot and the whirlwind of a nightmare I seem to have found myself in… Those stairs were a bit of a hike but SO worth it.
The ice was shimmering and the show was about to begin, we had made it there just in time. As the hockey “players” entered the rink I saw some of my children’s new movie characters. Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness present the show with many appearances throughout. Isabella and Elleanna have seen this movie a few times though sadly I have not with my busy work schedule; I found myself so entertained. I felt as if I were a child again; my mouth may have been open in “Aw” as well as the children’s.
As different memory balls bounced out the Inside Out characters grabbed a nice red one… Nice? Ehh no it was an angry memory which brought Beauty and the beast to the stage. From the classic Be Our Guest song to the love that tamed the Beast we were charmed.
As Mickey did his magic with one of my childhood movies, Fantasia; I saw my girls and brother in-law become more bewitched as the brooms showed off their moves. Their short but magical performance kept us wondering who would be next. Doc, Sleepy, Grumpy, Bashful, Happy, Sneezy and don’t forget Dopey took the ice with Snow White and the Evil Queen.
Many of our favorite classics such as Jasmine and her Prince Aladdin, Meredith, Prince Eric and Ariel as well as Tiana along with many more glided across the ice with grace. We watched the many different princesses arrive on the Ice; creating such a magical experience as the children’s eyes lit up.
“Mommy, Mommy! Look! Look!” Pointing at all the Princess’s that I was unaware would be making appearances, Isabella looked at if she was the happiest little girl in the world. Until we had our intermission break, I don’t believe their eyes left the ice!
We jumped up. because every parent knows when you have a chance for a bathroom break you make a break for it and RUN! So back up those favorite stairs of mine we went for a bit of time in lines for bathrooms with the MANY mini princesses. As I limped back to my seat I wondered where my brother in-law, oldest daughter and mother in-law were at. Joel’s favorite part that he was waiting on was about to begin. But just like Dory our families had to remember how to get back to our seats and find one another.
Elleanna dancing in her seat and Joel mesmerized I felt a bit of peace. Happiness in my soul, again after this week… This show gave us all a bit of childhood memories from adults to our children and grandchildren; sharing in the moments of “Aw” while Princess’s did flips and twists on ropes, classic movies we grew up watching and the new favorites that our children are hooked on came to life.
We sang along many times but Olaf’s “In Summer” was a favorite… I found myself mimicking each line of Frozen due to the fact I’ve watch it a million times or more. (Maybe without children sometimes… hehe)
“Do you want to build a snowman? Or ride our bike around the halls?
I think some company is overdue I’ve started talking to The pictures on the walls!
(Hang in there, Joan)”
