So we took Aiden and our niece, Callie, to the Toy Story on Ice show at the Pepsi Center. They LOVED it.
They just weren’t sure what to expect at first. Callie, who is the older cousin, kept asking why the people didn’t just walk on their feet (instead of skate on the ice). Aiden kept asking me if we could get popcorn at the movie theatre for the show (he’d never been to the Pepsi Center before).
Once we got to our seats, they couldn’t stop jumping up and down and hugging each other and of course, looking for the characters and the popcorn.
Aiden told Joel: Daddy, I can be in the show. I have a cowboy shirt!
It was really more entertaining and fulfilling watching how mesmerized they were by the show. They would clap wildly after each scene, grin and then look at us as if to say, “did you see that?!” We even had to remind them to blink their eyes.
Near the end of the show, they couldn’t keep their bums in their seats, so we let them stand at the front of the box to get as close as possible to Buzz & Woody.
This was probably good so they would stop autopilot feeding themselves handfuls of popcorn (eating without paying attention. I do this all the time; see those adorable chipmunk cheeks I’m rocking? Might be getting ready to hibernate for the winter with those).
I’m so glad we were able to get these tickets for the kids! I’m so glad Aunt Kristina trusted me with her little nugget for the afternoon. These two kids, these little peas in a pod, had a blast! I’m so glad we got to share this event with her.
To Infinity & Beyond!
