Friday Night Ice
On Friday night, we trooped--with the Brownies--to Disney on Ice, our first time at that show. It was crowded and chaotic, swarming with young children and things to buy. We had great seats, rink-side, and could see everything, from the ice-skating Cars to the flying fairies. The fairies were my favorite; Sis thought so, too. We all liked Toy Story--laughing at dancing Hamm and admiring Jesse's lanky moves (Bud did not like that Barbie ripped up Ken's clothes, though; he thought it was mean, even under the circumstances)--but Sis thought it was too long. They were a bit confused about the appearance of an undersea set, not sure if it were Nemo or Little Mermaid, even with "Under the Sea" playing. Clearly, we're not quite ready for Disney World! But we were a very enthusiastic audience, sipping slushies and eating cotton candy while smiling and even waving at the skaters. I definitely admired the athleticism and artistry of the skaters, who demonstrated some of their jumps and spins in a post-show technical explanation.
