Disney On Ice in San Jose

Disney On Ice delivered it’s magic on opening night in San Jose last night! From the Toy Story opening to the Frozen finish, it was a magical night of family fun.

We had great seats and the kids loved being close to the excitement.

Side note: taking so many pictures indoors in all sorts of lighting was good practice with indoor shots on my new camera. The more I practice, the better, but I have a ways to go. I know what it’s capable of, because, this:

But I had a heck of a time getting good, focused pictures.

She’s cute even unfocused, but could have been great with that pretty background! And maybe if her hair looked brushed…

Disney On Ice Faces

The most fun thing about Disney On Ice is the look on the kids’ faces as they watch their favorite characters perform–Woody and Ariel and Mater, oh my! Reece seemed excited each time a new character entered and Emme was enthralled the whole time. She spent the first song like this–staring in wonder with her hands clasped.

She was also a fan of her snow cone, which she got in a fancy Ariel cup.

Taking it in. 🙂

I didn’t get any good pictures of Reece’s excitement, but he kept looking over at me with big smiles. His favorite seemed to be the toy soldiers during Toy Story. Unfortunately for him, he spent a lot of the show sitting in my lap because his stomach didn’t feel well–not even well enough to eat the big, soft pretzel he picked for his treat (more for me!). Whether it’s a stomach virus or my cooking, I’m not sure.

An Eventful End to the Evening

Disney On Ice kept Reece distracted from his stomach pain, but we had an eventful end to our night when right as we exited onto the concourse to head towards the exit, he vomited all over the floor (and the hem of a little girl’s princess dress).

This was when EVERYONE was leaving, so we stood there, huddled around his mess so the masses of people wouldn’t step in it, while Doug ran off to alert someone who worked there and Reece stood there close to tears saying, “I want to go home,” but we couldn’t even move because then everyone would walk through it. People who work at the SAP Center eventually made their way over to us and took over the guarding-the-vomit duty until a janitor came, while Doug hustled Reece off to the bathroom. It certainly made the evening even more memorable!

My poor little guy seemed to be feeling a bit better after emptying his stomach, so I hope it was just a weird fluke and no one else catches a stomach bug!

And with that, I’ll end with this poorly focused, but still lovely profile shot of my sweet boy.
