Disney on Ice

On Saturday, Kaitlyn and I got to go to Mickeys and Minnie's Magical Ice Adventure at the Energy Solutions Arena. We were supposed to go with Kaitlyn's friend Sierra and her mom, but sadly Sierra got sick. So, Kaitlyn and I got to have a mother/daughter date. We had a blast. Kaitlyn really likes Mickey right now and was so excited when she saw him come out. She had the cutest expressions on her face.

There were lots of fun Disney characters. They did songs from the Lion King, Lilo and Stitch, Peter Pan, and The Little Mermaid. Her all time favorite was Sebastian from The Little Mermaid. When he came out, she got so excited, she jumped out of her seat and started screaming with glee. The Little Mermaid is one of her favorite movies and she loves to sing along with the songs. It was cute to listen to her sing along to Kiss the Girl.
At intermission, we had to buy Kaitlyn a toy. It was a tough decision, but Kaitlyn picked out a fun little Minnie Mouse doll. The entire second half, Minnie sat comfortably on Kaitlyn's lap. Since Saturday, Minnie has also slept on Kaitlyn's bed with her for every nap and bedtime. She has never been this attached to a doll, it is adorable. It was an enjoyable day and nice for Kaitlyn and I to get to spend some quality time together.

After the show, we went out to dinner with my family for my brother Jordan's birthday. It was great to spend some time with my family. Overall, it was a wonderful day.

Red Wagon

Do you remember how much fun it was to play in a wagon as a kid? Well, Brandon and I have wanted to get a wagon for the kids for a while now. A couple weeks ago, when Brandon was delivering to Harbor Freight, he saw they had the kind we wanted on sale. Of course he had to buy one right away. He had me come pick it up and take it home. With some help from Kaitlyn and Ben, and a little assistance from Brandon, I put the wagon together. We took the kids for a walk in it that night. They LOVED it. Ben loves having the freedom to move around and Kaitlyn likes the space. We have had several wonderful walks with our new wagon. The only bad part of the wagon is that it goes way to fast down hills, but I am sure the kids will love that when they get older.

The kids loved the ride so much they crashed on the way home. This has happened on a couple of our walks.
