When the show started she kind of just sank into Landon's arm with a smile on her face. I think she was just so overwhelmed and happy to be there and finally see that moment she had been waiting for where the characters came out onto the ice and skated around. She was in heaven and just kept looking over at me and smiling throughout the entire show. There were a few more times she just laid her head on Landon's arm.
Here is the beginning of the show
Andrew kept asking where Donald Duck was before the show started. He asked about the lights and looked around at all of the people, especially the boy behind us who had a big blue plastic sword. He was so tired but couldn't keep his eyes off of all of the characters. On the way home he said he didn't like it because of the fireworks at the very end. He is still not a big fan. Landon said "so the 5 fireworks at the end ruined the whole thing for you huh?" Andrew did admit that Goofy was his favorite when we got home.
I have to admit, I was a little emotional at first. I felt so dumb about it, I held back the tears of course, I am really good at that. It was just so neat to see my kids so happy and to be there altogether doing something fun and memorable. I think Kinnie will always remember it. I told Landon we need to do more things like this but I guess the infrequency of it is partly what makes it so special.
It couldn't have ended on a better act. Kinnie is a little obsessed with Peter Pan right now. She has actually only seen the Disney Peter Pan once or twice but she has been watching a movie Peter Pan on Netflix that is really cute. I think she has watched it 5 times in the last week (maybe I shouldn't admit that).
This is her "I can't believe it is Peter Pan" look
