We had a fun family outing on Sunday at the Rose Garden seeing Disney On Ice! So this was the first time that we have ever taken the boys to something like this! A big huge event and it was a last minute offer to us! A friend of a friend wasn't going to be able to go, so we got her discounted tickets! Only $8.00 per ticket and we were only 12 rows up from the ice! The boys were watching in amazement at all of the things going on around them and were so cute! I usually talk about things we are going to do a few days in advance so that I'm not springing something on them. We talked about getting to see "Lion King" since that was one of the mini shows of characters that were coming out that they were familiar with. That is all Cameron kept talking about! "We going to see Simba"! Yep! We were going to see Simba and all of his Lion King friends, as well as characters from Little Mermaid, Cars, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy! And they were doing a new presentation of fairy characters from a new movie called Pixie Hollow!
So out comes Mickey, Minnie and the other characters and the boys were doing fine! Daniel was on Daddy's lap, and Cameron was sitting like such a big boy on the edge of his seat! We found that if they sat back in their seats, the seat would start to fold up on them, or they would come close to kicking the person in front of them in the head! So sitting on the edge of the seat or on our laps was the best way to sit! Then out comes "Cars" and along with that came a really loud "BOOM", which scared the bajeezies out of Daniel and made him cry! Poor little guy! I thought that was the end of the show for us. But Daddy did a great job of calming him down and distracting him with what was going on in the show. Cameron was so adorable to watch just sitting so intently watching the show! He clapped when everybody else clapped (always with a HUGE grin on his face) , and turned to me to tell me (in such an excited voice) what was going on and who just came out! AAAHHH!!! I have to admit, I don't know why, but I started to get a little teary when we were first sitting there and the show started! I didn't actually cry or anything, but felt like I was about to. I was enjoying watching my boys experience something new and amazing! Part of me thought about how I always wanted these things in my life. To take my children to events and out for new experiences and watch them enjoy themselves and have fun! And for a fair amount of time in my life, I didn't think these days would ever come. So I treasure each and every special moment along the way because it is a miracle that we were blessed with such amazing little boys in our lives and I couldn't be happier to be there Mommy! So one more special moment down, a zillion more to go!
So question for all you mommies out there.....Do any of you get emotional or teary at new and special times you spend with your kids? Or those "firsts" that are pretty special too?
Have a great day everyone!
