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.

That sounds like great fun, Jason! Cherish these times with your family, my friend. Your little girls are very blessed to have you and Kim as parents.

Aren't those just the best times? When you can make their dreams come true, even for just a brief moment in time? Our grandson who was almost five back in Nov is a dinosaur enthusiast extraordinaire. So, when the Dinosaurs Alive! show came to a nearby coliseum, we got tickets. He was absolutely awed and so thrilled he was shaking.
Being able to provide him this memory?
Priceless!
I love they wore their princess outfits! It will be a lifetime memory, for sure!

Jason..I'm sure that they'll never forget that!

That was the kind of thing that I could only dream of as a little girl!

You're such a good daddy..and I know that mommy is just as wonderful!

Wow! I'm glad you're having such a good time with your girls; they will certainly always remember it!

Congrats on the safe, too. We need to purchase one, eventually.

I felt like I was there with you watching your girls' faces! Thanks for including us!

When my kids were still living at home, we used to go to Atlanta once a year to see the Cirque de Soleil. It was a big treat and worth the time and effort. I miss doing things like that now that they are up and gone.

think how this day you explain affected us all...then think how many kids don't have their folks even making them dinner every night let alone taking them to Disney or Cirque de Soleil..or don't have both parents at home.

Then I think of my own dad when he took us to Ice Capades every year...and watched his five little girls' faces. I like to think that gave him back some of the joy he gave us.
I hope so.
