Disney On Ice - Princess Wishes
I went through a great debate about buying tickets to take Anna Kate to this event recently. It suddenly occured to me that I could use the birthday money I've been hoarding since March, so I went to the box office and bought tickets 2 hrs. before the performance. I drove home and surprised Anna Kate, who decked herself out in her pink Sleeping Beauty dress and a pink crown. We were out late the night before, so she was tired, and therefore sucked her thumb the whole time, making it hard to gauge her response. But her intent gaze and sometimes very enthusiastic clapping (with her thumb still in her mouth, no less), led me to believe that she enjoyed it almost as much as I did. But we had to wait to ask her until the next day, because as soon as the show ended, she turned incredibly cranky. I picked her up in my arms and within ten steps, she was fast asleep. Everyone we passed was pointing and smiling at my pink Sleeping Beauty slumbering in my arms on the way to the parking garage. She definitely chose the right dress.
