passport to adventure!

We have been quite lucky to hit up Disney on Ice practically every year (last year, last fall). And this year was no different. We also got to include my sister and her husband and my neice too! Babies under the age of two don't count because they are lap babies! Which a certain two and a half year old, I won't name names (David) sat on Matt's lap the entire show but.... Ah well. He had a seat should he want it.

The show as always is at the Giant Center and this year's theme was Passport to Adventure. So we got to see Lion King, Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch and Peter Pan. I could have done with out Lilo. Might be my least favorite ever.

Letty was coming down off a sleepover high and actually fell asleep in the car on the way up to the show.... so to bribe her into a good mood we bought her a Little Mermaid ice. And then because one must be fair we bought David a sword (?). Dom got nothing because he had no idea what was going on. Oh and mama got her wine. And here you have a ton of horrid iPhone photos....

And then the show began! The lights turned down and the noise turned up and Dom looked like this:

And the Sauders looked like this:

And David did a whole lot of this:

The Little Mermaid always has the best costumes I think. Always.

But then Ursala made David look like this:

During intermission Lena stretched her adorable little legs and Dom had a little snack and then we headed back down for Peter Pan which is always magic. That Mister Barrie knew what he was doing. Lena didn't last too much longer as it was nap time... but us Olsens made it to the end! Shocker of all shockers.

Letty's tongue was a glorious shade of black from her mixed ice. David and Dom fell asleep before we left the parking lot. And our wallet was slightly less heavy then when the show began. Oh and Letty peed on the side of the road from too much ice. 




  1. I loved Disney on ice as a Kid. Seriously did - thought I don't remember having that many.. I think they came maybe once a year to my city. I was a master of having to go on the side of the road - bless my mom's heart.. haha sounds like a wonderful family time.

  2. this is an amazing recap. especially the facial expressions. dying over dom's face lol. and david and matt clones. too cute. allll of it :)

  3. Oh you can get booze at these events? Love the pic of you wearing Dom holding your wine. And all the faces David is making. And Dom. And Ursula?! That is no joke! It will be fun to take Syd to something like this! Looks like Lena did well. Did she like it?

  4. It has been way too long since I have seen a DOI show. I used to go every year. I am putting an end to that this winter though. Frozen is coming and if I miss it things are going to get ugly. Like looking for Mr. Gold ugly. ;-)

  5. Next time invite me! You know I love Disney, and you! I would be terrified to take Savanna though, maybe this year next time!?

  6. lol. Nothing says a fun trip out when pee on the road is involved...
    I didn't realize Disney on Ice was so ubiquitous. You go every other day, and I see it all over various posts. I have never heard of it in my area. I guess we have Disney on concrete so no need for the ice? I'm sure they must do it in Orlando somewhere though.

  7. Giant Ursula is going to give me nightmares.


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
