Our Princesses on Ice
Our family has been enjoying a bit of a break this week. Kim and the girls were on spring break from school this week and so I decided to take a week of vacation so we could all be together. Much of our time has been spent on sitting and talking, cleaning things in the house that don't normally get the attention, organizing, and most of all playing with the girls. Yesterday we purchased a gun safe to keep all our guns and ammo out of the reach of little hands. With only the other bus mechanic that I work with, Kim, and I we managed to get the 745lb. beast off of the trailer and through the garage and into the house. Talk about strenuous! In the end we managed it but I certainly wouldn't want to do it for a living. Today the girls got all dressed up in their princess dresses and we went to the new Sprint Center in Kansas City to see Disney Princesses on Ice. Talk about a production. There were skaters, flips, dancing, lights, sets, and a fire breathing dragon that even caught the ice on fire!!! For one of the first times this week the girls were speechless. They sat there enthralled with the pageantry and beauty that is the imagination of disney characters. I had as much fun watching their faces as I had watching the show. All in all it was a wonderful day and the kind of day that our little ones will not soon forget. I hope everyone can take a little time away from the firestorm that is this political season and think about imagination and fun.
